Green-wood Cemetery Tour

Katie Archer will lead a tree tour of Brooklyn's famous Green-Wood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark and resting place of numerous well-known figures such as Leonard Bernstein and "Boss" Tweed.

The tour will go from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, October 24th.

The entrance is at 5th Ave. and 25th St. in Brooklyn. We'll meet just
inside the Arch (the big brownstone arch) at 2 p.m. and go from there.

Wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a bottle of water if you
think you might need it (there are no drinking fountains along the
way). I will try to work in a bathroom break, but I'm still planning
the route based on which trees will have the best fall color, so it's
not a guarantee. There are bathrooms where we will start and finish
the tour, however.

The tour will be $10. Part of that will go to the Historic Fund, which helps maintain the grounds and the lots, and preserves the history of
Green-Wood.

Please let Katie know if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you (and anyone you want to invite) on the 24th!Reserve by email: at
