The Green-Wood Cemetery is the final resting place of many famous and heroic figures in American history, but some of its deceased denizens have slightly more blemished reputations. Veteran tour guide Ruth Edebohls leads a thrilling exploration of the lives of murderers and their victims, sullied adulteress Elizabeth Tilton and famed courtesan Lola Montez, as well as gangsters (Albert Anastasia and Joe Gallo), conmen, and schemers who count among Green-Wood’s most notorious permanent residents.
This trolley tour is $25; $20 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended. If the trolley tour is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
