This summer, Green-Wood will host an exciting variety of trolley tours highlighting the cemetery’s notable “permanent residents”, its magnificent landscape and world-class works of sculpture and architecture. These tours will take place every Wednesday and Sunday from June through August. Please see schedule below for specific dates and times.
Experience the most magnificent and historic 478 acres in New York City. Visitors will hear fascinating stories of Green-Wood’s permanent residents, see breathtaking views of Manhattan, tread where George Washington and his troops fought the Battle of Brooklyn and much more. Now, by popular demand, a rotation of three different tours is offered. Each boasts great views, beautiful monuments, rolling hills, century-old tress and stories of the fascinating persons interred at Green-Wood.
