Graves were opened and human remains exposed when a mausoleum was broken into recently at the Bayside Cemetery, a 160-year-old Jewish cemetery in Ozone Park, Queens. Cemetery officials became aware of the damage last week after the vandalism was reported by a cemetery visitor. Owned by Shaare Zedek, a Conservative congregation on the Upper West Side, the cemetery has long been in disrepair.
