Brooklyn native Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery, the Supreme Court said Friday.
The announcement said that the burial will be private. No details about a public funeral or memorial service have yet been announced.
Justice Ginsburg, who died Friday at age 87 after 27 years on the nation’s highest court, will join 13 other Supreme Court justices buried in the nation’s most hallowed resting place, including former Chief Justices Earl Warren, William Rehnquist, William Howard Taft and Warren Burger.
Associate Justices Thurgood Marshall, John Paul Stevens and Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. are among the other Supreme Court members buried there.
Most SCOTUS members in Arlington are buried in Section 5, just steps away from President John F. Kennedy’s grave.
Several justices were buried in New York City, including Benjamin Cardozo, in Beth Olam Cemetery in Ridgewood, Queens; Henry Brockholst Livingston and Samuel M. Blatchford in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn and former Chief Justice Charles Evan Hughes at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.
