Grave Situations

Midwood's Washington Cemetery is facing a slight problem: it's full. There are hardly any plots left at the burial ground, and the cemetery wants to expand by buying the house next door, demolishing it, and adding 200 to 300 more tombs. But neighbors would prefer that their views?and resale values?not suddenly become all about graves. Because the land would be used for burial, the sale requires City Council approval, so this could get messy. [NYDN]
