Description - Green-Wood Cemetery by Alexandra Kathryn Mosca

For generations, Green-Wood Cemetery has played an integral part in New York City s cultural history, serving as a gathering place and a cultural repository. Situated in the historic borough of Brooklyn, the thousands of graves and mausoleums within the cemetery s 478 acres are tangible links and reminders to key events and people who made New York City and America what it is today. The monuments read like a who s who of American greatness and include the names of Leonard Bernstein, F. A. O. Schwarz, Charles L. Tiffany, Samuel Morse, and DeWitt Clinton, among others. A national historic landmark since 2006, Green-Wood is considered one of the preeminent cemeteries in the country and is a living display of the evolving funeral traditions of the city and America as a whole. The cemetery was and remains one of the city s largest open green spaces and a century ago was a social venue for picnics, outings, and political events. Through vintage photographs, Green-Wood Cemetery chronicles the cemetery s rich history and documents how its tradition as a park and a popular tourist attraction continues, drawing 300,000 visitors annually."
