Paterson is in Passaic County, NJ, which is adjacent to Bergen County.
Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY, established in 1838, has a major
entrance gateway at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 37th Street. The
buildings at the Fort Hamilton Parkway Entrance that were built in
1876-77 have been designated as a NYC landmark.

Given that the death certificate was issued in NYC, I suspect that your
grandfather is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn and not in
either Passaic or Bergen County, New Jersey. I also suggest that you
contact Martin D. Kasdan of Boulevard-Riverside Chapels, 1895 Flatbush
Avenue, Brooklyn, who is Funeral Director of Union Temple in Brooklyn
and probably a descendant of Albert M. Kasdan, who was a funeral
director in Brooklyn in the early 20th century.
