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
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: athttp://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=[masked]
