The Woodlawn Cemetery in The Bronx is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. Established in 1863, the cemetery is 400 acres of rolling lawns, spectacular trees and impressive memorials designed by many of the nation's most accomplished artists and architects.

NEW YORK, NY.- Bronx Architecture” is an online
guide to the architecture of the borough developed by Lehman College Art
Gallery/CUNY. Designed as a companion to “Public Art in the Bronx,” the Web site
features over 75 buildings, background on architects
, neighborhood
walking tours, maps, lesson-plans for high school teachers, neighborhood
histories, a resource section, and glossary. Like the Web site devoted to public
art, we hope that this guide will provide a useful resource for the general
public as well as teachers and encourage exploration of the art and architecture
of the Bronx.
