The Cemetery of the Evergreens is a non-denominational rural cemetery along the Cemetery Belt in Brooklyn and Queens, New York, colloquially called Evergreen Cemetery.

For a time, it was the busiest cemetery in New York City; in 1929 there were 4,673 interments. Today, the Evergreens is the final resting place of more than 526,000 people.The cemetery borders Brooklyn and Queens and covers 225 acres of rolling hills and gently sloping meadows. It features several thousand trees and flowering shrubs in a park-like setting. Cypress Hills Cemetery lies to its northeast.
