This is ( in my opinion ) the most beautiful place in all of New York City. It is a photographers dream come true. I hope to convince you of that by the end of our tour. Green-Wood Cemetery is New York's oldest landscaped space. Its 478 acres are jam-packed with natural beauty, amazing sculptural works, architectural treasures and countless historical tales. We will visit the graves of some of New York's most influential citizens; and see amazing views of the Manhattan skyline as we walk to the highest natural point in Brooklyn. This tour will give you a grand overview of the history, art, architecture and flora of what was really New York’s first public park. Together we'll explore the beauty and mystery of this Brooklyn treasure.
Other things to note
Bring your camera and sunscreen if needed. Bring your own water or drinks since none are for sale at the venue. You must be able to walk on uneven terrain and climb a few stairs at different times.

Kje boste

We will trace the origin of the rural cemetery in America and learn about American views of death and burial. Along our journey we will encounter Masons, Odd-Fellows, famous musicians , artists, inventors, politicians, power brokers and maybe a few surprise critters as well! We'll visit one of the most important battle sites of the American Revolution while we walk to the highest natural point in Brooklyn.

Es ist ein tolles Erlebnis. Da die Gruppe nicht groß sein kann, kann man sich hier gut einen Eindruck machen. James weiß über alles auf dem Friedhof Bescheid und begeistert sich sehr dafür, sodass man sich auf eine Reise begibt.

A very interesting tour. Shame about the rain but James overcame that easily. Lots of stories and information shared about the cemetery and its residents. A very interesting place and so big!

The Cemetery is huge and it was a hot day, I'm glad we went through the tour in a car, James shows you some nice areas and tells you some interesting stories about their permanent guests. He really has a passion for it, ask him about any grave he'll probably know the story of their death.

This was my second visit to Green-wood cemetery. Considering the massive 478 acres of ground to cover, much of it very steep, I soon realized I had missed out on numerous vistas on that initial trip. James very efficiently navigated us through the giant necropolis over the rolling hills to stop at numerous hidden gems, complete with city skylines, palatial mausoleums nestled before peaceful lagoons, and noteworthy monuments easily missed.  If you're considering exploring on your own, as I first did, you'll miss out. There's no way to thoroughly cover this whole place on your own without a talented guide like James to blaze a trail to the highlights. As you'll see, complementing these grand sites are many intriguing stories about the noteworthy individuals and families interred here. James is a walking, talking encyclopedia of the fascinating history of the cemetery and its occupants. His love of this beautiful place and his love of sharing it was evident throughout the experience. He also ties together the evolution of cultural attitudes toward death with monument design, both specific to Green-wood and cemeteries in general. As a fellow tour guide and taphophile, often I find my knowledge of certain subjects only scratching the surface and lacking a deeper breadth of knowledge.  He connected many dots for me, all in a very engaging and easygoing way. You will leave feeling enriched. Highly recommended!

This was a great experience with James. I had a private tour of the cemetery with James, and he is very knowledgeable about it. He was able to take me around to multiple places that are spread out throughout the grounds and share his knowledge about each place he took me. I would highly recommend this if you want to actually learn the history behind many points on the grounds and not just wonder hoping to find something interesting. Not to mention this cemetery is huge and its impossible to walk around the whole thing in one day, so having someone to actually take you parts that are hidden from view and share knowledge of the grounds is priceless...
