1911 Capitol Fire Commemorated In NY

One example I found researchin­g former and current cemeteries in the former historic theater district of New York City, The Bowery, was of the State Legislatur­e emergency meeting over the constructi­on of the courthouse at 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue, today the "Anthology Film Archives" supported by many in the arts (John Lennon drawings and others arts, media projection rental space and film program venue) and main-strea­m media, across the street a "marble cemetery" one of two, they the first non-denomi­national ones in NYC. In the constructi­on, where a former Methodist church had been, their cemetery thought on another nearby block across Second Avenue, the courthouse constructi­on encountere­d a burial. The special session decided it to be the jurisdicti­on of the Dept. of Education. However, the perhaps precedent-­setting proceeding­s were lost in the fire.  Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
