Oldest Jewish Cemetery in the United States

In an AP story in the Phila. Inquirer, 2/19/12, at N3, it talks about this, the oldest Jewish Cemetery in the United States: The graveyard was used from 1682 to 1828 by Congregation Shearith Israel, also known as the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue. It goes on to say that the synagogue is now at 2 W. 70th Street. From what I gather from reading on the Web, it is a bit hidden and is only open by appointment.
