Tour Description
This historic rural / garden cemetery was established in 1838 and is a National Historic Landmark . Its 478 acres are the oldest landscaped space in NYC and have some of New York's oldest trees as well. Green-Wood's collection of 19th & 20th-century statuary and mausoleums are unrivaled. Walk the meandering paths with me through this beautiful and history-packed "hidden gem" of Brooklyn. We'll go to the highest natural point in Brooklyn and see incredible views of the Manhattan skyline. We'll learn about the largest battle of the American Revolution, meet the father of baseball, visit the grave of Maestro Leonard Bernstein and many others. You will be amazed!

This tour can usually be done anytime between 8am and 5pm. We will meet just inside the front iron gates at 5th Ave and 25th Street.

I can take anywhere from 1 to 10 people on this tour at a time.
