This approach is based on a Richmond-Kings-New York-Bronx-Queens circuit.

Coming from Staten Island, cross the Verrazano Bridge (free eastbound), and take I-278 to the 38th Street exit. At the bottom of the ramp, proceed to 5th Avenue, turn left and go thirteen blocks to 25th Street. The cemetery entrance is on the right and is open daily from 8 AM to 4 PM. Tell the guard you want to go to the highest point. Bear left past the gate and keep going uphill until you can't. The Kiamie mausoleum, which sits at the highpoint, is visible from the road. If the gate guard sees a camera in your car, he will inform you that photography is prohibited.
