With great views, amazing architecture, and deep links to the 19th century, visiting Green-Wood Cemetery is an amazing way to step back into the past. As the final resting place for many New Yorkers this two-hour tour runs the gamut from Coney Island showmen to famous politicians to eccentric poets to Bowery Boys gang leaders and more.
In addition to learning about some of the notable people interred there we’ll also visit the highest natural point of Brooklyn, learn how the cemetery became home to flocks of parrots, and talk about how the creation of the cemetery reflects the creation of metropolitan New York.
This walk meets at Green-Wood Cemetery main entrance, 500 25th Street in Brooklyn. We will meet near the arches at the top of the drive by the green bike racks.
A portion of the proceeds from the tour support Green-Wood Cemetery.
