UPDATED 10/8/2013

As promised, we are returning to Greenwood Cemetery, where many famous historical figures were buried, as well as an enchanting landscape. There are so many beautiful memorials, tombs and stones along with ponds, some ducks, flowers and foliage. This is a great opportunity for those who own wide angle lenses. Oh, and this photowalk is FREE!!

We will meet at the main entrance located at[masked]th Street (@ 5th Avenue) in Brooklyn at 12noon. Subway stations nearby are the R to 25th Street, and the D, N, R to 36th Street.

The Cemetery will have free maps available at the entrance, or you can download the map here: http://files.meetup.com/1605023/green_wood_map.pdf . We may have to break up into smaller groups.
