Greenwood Cemetery, New York
The New York Green-Wood Cemetry is a highlight. It is the gold standard among the cemeteries. Hills, ponds, valleys, walking paths, one of the largest open-air collections of statues and mausoleums from the 19th and 20th centuries, 7000 trees, 125 species of birds, the artistic “Historic Chappel” for funerals, weddings, and concerts.
Millionaires and murderers are buried here: Brooklyn’s historic Greenwood Cemetery is rich in monuments and bizarre anecdotes. But now the gravesite is running out. And the money. Now the director wants to reinvent the resting place – as a tourist destination.
