Hart Island is the location of the largest potter’s field in the world.
About 900,000 bodies are buried here in mass graves and still about 1,500 a year are added.
In 1977 most of the burial records were destroyed in a fire

Contest #359 answer: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand
If there was some weird contest who has the longest place name on earth, this one had won hands down. It is longer than the places of contest #217 and contest #249 and -according to Wikipedia- it means ‘The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one’.
There are some longer versions around, but this one seems to be the official one.
