Gate of Heaven Cemetery-Hawthorne NY

The Gate of Heaven Cemetery, approximately 25 miles north of New York City, was established in 1917 at 10 West Stevens Ave. in Hawthorne, Westchester County, New York, as a Roman Catholic burial site. Among its famous residents is baseball player Babe Ruth, whose grave has an epitaph by Cardinal Francis Spellman and is almost always adorned by a large number of baseballs, bats, and caps. Adjacent to the Garden Mausoleum is a small train station of the Metro North Railroad Harlem Division named Mount Pleasant where 4 trains stop daily, 2 northbound and 2 southbound. Several baseball players are buried here.
