I visited Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn on April 22nd.  I need to go back to do the other 400 acres I missed.  I must be honest here…I’ve wanted to do Green-Wood for a long time.  It did not overwhelm me like Baltimore’s Green Mount Cemetery did or how Philadelphia’s Laurel Hill did.  I think because Green-Wood is sooooo spread out whilst these other cemeterie’s, while still huge, are a bit more compact„,more dense and crowded.  Make sense?  Do I want to re-visit Green-Wood…um YES!  I also got to see Don Wildman, the host of History Channel’s Cities of the Underworld film stuff at the Green-Wood front gate!  I saw the Dublin Ireland St. Michan’s skeleton mummies because of him!  Very cool! 
I took this history from their website:www.green-wood.com/
Founded in 1838 as one of America’s first rural cemeteries, the Green-Wood Cemetery soon developed an international reputation for its magnificent beauty and became the fashionable place to be buried. By 1860, Green-Wood was attracting 500,000 visitors a year, rivaling Niagara Falls as the country’s greatest tourist attraction. Crowds flocked to Green-Wood to enjoy family outings, carriage rides and sculpture viewing in the finest of first generation American landscapes. Green-Wood’s popularity helped inspire the creation of public parks, including New York City’s Central and Prospect Parks.
Green-Wood is 478 spectacular acres of hills, valleys, glacial ponds and paths, throughout which exists one of the largest outdoor collections of 19th- and 20th-century statuary and mausoleums. Four seasons of beauty from century-and-a-half-old trees offer a peaceful oasis to visitors, as well as its 560,000 permanent residents, including Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Horace Greeley, Civil War generals, baseball legends, politicians, artists, entertainers and inventors.
A magnet for history buffs and bird watchers, Green-Wood is a Revolutionary War historic site (the Battle of Long Island was fought in 1776 across what is now its grounds), a designated site on the Civil War Discovery Trail and a registered member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System.
On September 27, 2006, Green-Wood was designated a National Historic Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior, which recognized its national significance in art, architecture, landscaping and history.
After almost two centuries, Green-Wood is as beautiful as it was at its founding. But such historic beauty is fragile. Time and weather have taken their toll on marble sculpture, granite monuments, brownstone mausoleums, cast-iron signs and landscaped parkland.
