In a cemetery of mostly poor East Europeans (plus Andy Warhol), this Sacred Heart statue is one of the grandest monuments. The earliest burial here was in 1934, and that may be the date of the monument.
A classical gateway with fluted Doric columns frames a Sacred Heart statue. Tablets for two branches of the Purpura family flank the gateway. This is one of those curious combinations we often see in Catholic cemeteries: ostentatiously classical taste applied to traditional Catholic religious symbolism.
