The information being given about Acacia & Bayside Cemeteries are incorrect. They are two of the three Ozone Park Cemeteries. The third is Mokom Sholom which is always kept locked & you have to call the office to have it opened. What is correct is that there are no offices on site for the three Ozone Park cemeteries however there is a caretaker on site for Bayside Cemetery. They are not managed & owned by the same company. Bayside Cemetery is owned by Congregation Shaare Zedek in Manhattan & that is the only cemetery they own & was forced by a court to manage & maintain it properly. It is only open 9:00am to 3:00pm on Sundays. You should call ahead of time #212-874-7005 & the contact person was Jesse as of this past summer. Acacia is open every day except Saturday to 3:30pm is owned & operated by the same company that runs Mokom Sholom, Linden Hill, Machipelah & Mt Hope on Jamaica Ave. There phone # 212-477-2221. They assume immediately that you are doing genealogy & are not the most helpful.
