You are invited to visit some of Green-Wood’s most nefarious residents with veteran tour guide Ruth Edebohls.
Green-Wood is the final resting place of many famous and heroic people, but some of its deceased denizens have a more blemished reputation.
Murderers and the murdered, a sullied adulteress, a famous courtesan, gangsters, con men and schemers lie next to those of a more virtuous disposition.
You’ll also enjoy the visual delights of Green-Wood, its trees and ponds and its sculpture and buildings by the leading artists and architects of their time.
Walk may be hilly and strenuous—wear good walking shoes.
Walking tour: $10 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund / $15 for non-members. Reservations recommended.
The Green-Wood Historic Fund's mission is to maintain Green-Wood's monuments and buildings of historical, cultural and architectural significance; advance public knowledge and appreciation of this significance; and preserve the natural habitat and parklands of one of New York City's first green spaces.
