Event Details

February 10th- Come with the New York Obscura Society for a tour of Green-Wood Cemetery exploring the Awful Dead interred within

Interred beneath the ornate graves of Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn are stories of murder, corruption, gang warfare, and lurid scandal. Join us in unearthing these grim histories buried among the nearly 600,000 souls who call the Victorian rural cemetery their permanent home. Established in 1838, Green-Wood was planned as the final resting place for New York’s elite, a park-like predecessor to Central Park and an outdoor sculpture garden predating the Metropolitan Museum. Yet beneath its beauty of marble statues and tree groves are dark secrets, and what better time to discover them than in the dead of winter?
 
Led by our resident cemetery aficionado Allison Meier, this visit will also include a rare opportunity to explore Green-Wood’s catacombs. Come prepared for the cold and tales of cold, cold hearts.
 
DETAILS:
  • February 10th, 11-1 & 2-4
  • Allison will be leading two tours that day, times are listed directly above. Additionally, there will be a fair amount of walking involved so please come dressed warmly and wear comfortable shoes.
  • Location: We will meet just inside the Gothic entrance gate at 25th Street off of Fifth Avenue.
  • Tickets are $18 and a portion of the proceeds go to support the Green-Wood Historic Fund
