Don't miss, this one is epic. A visit to the Roosevelts circle is highly recommended - you can walk or drive and I've done both. Absolutely gorgeous.

This was a great way to see the cemetery! First time visiting and JR was a wonderful guide, super knowledgeable and fun. Everything was well paced and we saw some cool sites. Look forward to coming back for the morning birding tour JR recommended.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit Green-Wood. It is the most peaceful and relaxing area for a walk or a quiet place to sit. Historical and interesting also.

We took the trolley tour with Marge who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. So much history and beautiful landscaping. Highly recommend. Stop at the bakery across the street Baked in Brooklyn. You will not regret it.

I walk through Green-Wood Cemetary on occasion. Such beautiful landscaping and stunning mausoleums! What a sense of history, eeing the English and Irish names of the earliest graves and the more contemporary names including many Italians of more recent graves is something. Many of these names are from families that are well-known. I didn't get to see many of the famous people buried here. The entrance on Fifth Avenue and 25th Street is spectacular. I know people who have taken tours and found them really interesting. In the mid-19th century this was the second most visited site in America, second only to Niagara Falls! A special place to spend time in in Brooklyn.

Google Maps led me to straight to Basquiat grave. When I punched in William Poole aka Bill The Butcher into Google Maps it led me straight out of the cemetery. Coincidence ? 🤨
