Greatest Gargoyles New York 2001 - Green-Wood Cemetery

Green-Wood Cemetery

Green-Wood Cemetery

5th Ave. & 25th St.

Brooklyn, NY 11232


Map & Details>>

The list of celebrities buried there—Lola Montez, Leonard Bernstein, Currier & Ives, Joey Gallo, Samuel F.B. Morse, and Peter Cooper, to name a few—rivals any cemetery in the world, but the best reason to visit Brooklyn's GREEN-WOOD CEMETERY is the sumptuous landscaping and screwy funerary sculptures. Enter the Gothic gate and be drawn upward through the rolling hills as if on a stairway to heaven. You'll see why New York's early cemeteries also doubled as picnic grounds. Sadly, eating and playing Frisbee are no longer permitted. Enter at 25th Street and Fifth Avenue RS
