In the spirit of Halloween, yesterday we took a look at whether or not living near a cemetery affects real estate prices in New York. Apparently, on average, homes close to cemeteries were slightly smaller, but sold for more due to a higher cost per square foot. And though this is what the research suggests, we want to know your thoughts. Would it totally spook you to look out your window and see tombstones instead of tenements or would you not bat an eye if your dream apartment just happened to be steps away from coffins?
