Green-Wood is home to a spectacular collection of nineteenth-century architectural gems by some of the most renowned architects in American history. Three city landmarks, including the Gothic Arch and the Fort Hamilton Gatehouse by Richard Upjohn and Son (most famous for Trinity Church in Lower Manhattan) and the Historic Chapel designed by Warren & Wetmore, the architects of Grand Central Terminal, will be featured in this tour. The gravesites of celebrated architects such as James Renwick (St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Smithsonian Institution Building), Jacob Wrey Mould (Belvedere Castle in Central Park), and Gamaliel King (Brooklyn Borough Hall) will also be featured.
Through visits to a remarkable array of monuments and mausoleums, this trolley tour will explore the critical role architects have played in transforming the landscape of not only Green-Wood, but also New York City.
This trolley tour is $25; $20 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended.
