I didn't check 'yes' for the cemetery, although I have stood on the sidewalk and looked into it through the fence. If the clue had said 'seen', I would have checked the box.

Put last week's FJs together with this week's extras and I'm doing spectacularly...!... :roll:
It's strange for me to say that I have been to Manhattan only about a dozen times in the last 20 months...Lucky 13 this afternoon! I hope I won't feel too cut-off from the mainland... :roll:

I don't think I've set foot in the cemetery, but I probably looked in through the fence.

Another vote for Long Island. Have been to upstate New York, but no closer than Albany to NYC.

Dithered between Punic and Carthaginian, went with Carthaginian.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Long Island on Wednesday.

Been to Manhattan but never the cemetery.

Punic Wars on Thursday.
I would prefer not to.
