The history of the cemetery, according to wiki:

Flushing Cemetery is embellished and blessed with a number of historical points that occurred prior to its establishment. In the year 1789 (64 years before the cemetery was founded), George Washington had crossed the East River on a personal mission aboard his barge. Washington, like other noted landowners, journeyed to Flushing: The community was a center of scientific horticulture. The cemetery’s floral and arboreal beauty have become a memorial to Flushing’s status as a center of horticulture to this day.
