About this Death Cafe

Driving Directions from cemetery consulting historian Paula Lemire:

1. Use the Cemetery Avenue entrance on Broadway/Route 32 in Menands. Look for the large stone gates.

2. Follow Cemetery Avenue past the railroad tracks.

(You will see another cemetery gate on your left. This is St. Agnes Roman Catholic Cemetery; keep going past St. Agnes and you will see a smaller gate straight ahead and there will be a red brick and stone building on your left. This is Albany Rural Cemetery's main Office.)

3. Continue straight ahead past the Office and you will see the Chapel ahead on your right.

I haven't spoken to anyone at the Office about parking, but there is some space directly across the road from the Chapel by Section 62 and along the main road. Just don't block the road and try not to park on grass or dirt - it can get really muddy and spongy.
