Town of Greenburgh reclassifies land; Ferncliff Cemetery sues

Cemetery is the resting place for Malcolm X, Joan Crawford, and Aaliyah

HARTSDALE — Malcolm X, Joan Crawford and Aaliyah call Ferncliff Cemetery their resting place, but due to a dispute over a plot of land it might stop more people from calling it their forever home.

The cemetery, located on Secor Road in Hartsdale, is suing the Town of Greenburgh for reclassifying 12.5 acres of the cemetery as an estate.

The Ferncliff Cemetery Association has been using the property to control stormwater, to store topsoil, mulch, yard waste, tools and equipment for maintenance.
