Enjoy a Visit to Green-wood

Before the weather turns frigid, stop and visit Green-Wood, a beautiful and historic destination.

Now a National Historic Landmark, Green-wood was one of the first rural cemeteries in America. Home to 478 acres of hills, valleys, paths and ponds, Green-wood is so beautiful that it inspired the creation of NYC’s Central Park!

For history buffs, Green-wood’s 560,000 permanent residents include well-known people, among them Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Horace Greeley.

Green-wood is also a Revolutionary War Historic site—the Battle of Long Island was fought on its grounds in 1776. Green-wood is also a site on the Civil War Discovery Trail and a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System.

Free parking is available, and several dining options are available nearby.
