Good architecture exalts the spirit, so it’s no surprise that many architects, builders and designers have sought to make Green-Wood, whose purpose is exaltation of the spirit, their final resting place.
James Renwick (St. Patrick’s Cathedral), James Bogardus and Daniel Badger (cast-iron pioneers), Montrose Morris and George Chappell (best of “Brownstone” Brooklyn architecture), John McComb, Jr. (New York City Hall), Jacob Wrey Mould (Central Park features), Grosvenor Atterbury (Forest Hills Gardens), John Kellum (Tweed Courthouse), Gamaliel King (Brooklyn Borough Hall) and more – they all call Green-Wood home.
Expert guide Ruth Edebohls will lead you through landscape architect David Bates Douglass’ incomparable work of art (and also visit him), stopping by samples of great architecture by luminaries like Richard Upjohn & Son, Warren & Wetmore and Stanford White.
