I visited Green-Wood Cemetery after New York City had been hit with alot of snow. I heard about the beauty of Green-Wood Cemetery but wanted to see what it looked like covered in snow. I also heard about how great and entertaining tour guide Marge Raymond was from some friends who had taken her tour in the summer. Well they were so right. Marge Raymond was so knowledeable about the famous permanent residents which included a trip to Battle Hill where I viewed the Statue of Liberty and a the NYC skyline and heard her narrate the story of the Batte of Brooklyn. I saw the sister statue to the Statue of Liberty upon that hill. It was awesome. Then we visited Leonard Bernsteins gravesite and she sang a beautiful rendition of his song "somewhere". Marge Raymond is a professional singer and she brings to the tour her great personality, her knowledge and passion of Green-Wood Cemetery. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. It takes place on Wednesday at 1:00 PM and the last Sunday of the Month at 1:00 PM. She has several routes, so you can come back and see something different each time. Im coming back in the spring. She said the blossoms are spectacular. Green-Wood Cemetery is spectacular.
