Second Cemetery of the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, Shearith Israel

The Second Cemetery of the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, Shearith Israel, is located at 76 W 11th Street between 6th Ave and 7th Ave. I nearly passed this tiny cemetery today without noticing it. According to different sources online, this is the second of three cemeteries. The original, and larger of the three, is located at St. James place, just off Chatham Square. The third cemetery is located at 98-110 West 21st Street. Shearith Israel was a Jewish sect active in New York City between 1654 to 1825. It was founded by 23 Jews, most of them of Spanish and Portuguese descent.
