Fascinating hike uphill and downhill. Terrific views of Manhattan skyline as well as the harbor. Graves are some of the oldest in NYC so be sure to use the map to locate people like Leonard Bernstein

Beautiful historic cemetery where some of NYC's most notable residents are laid to rest. Beautiful architecture and a nationally recognized arboretum. Lots of steep hills and slopes, so elderly people or those with endurance issues may want to take into consideration.

Huge cemetery with many beautiful statues and crypts. The Brooklyn location has an excellent view of both Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Not a bad free thing to see if you're in Brooklyn.

A beautiful cemetary with a gothic arch filled with a raucous wild parrot colony, next to a good beer garden with all sorts of beatiful and interesting areas.

This is one of the prettiest cemeteries to walk around and you can easily spend a couple of hours just wandering through. Probably the nicest and most interesting cemetery we've been to after Père Lachaise and Highgate. Photography is encouraged and the grounds are really...More

We went on the Far Side Trolly tour and found it very interesting and informative. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. If you're into history, art and sculpture, this is a cool way to spend an afternoon. It's a really big cemetery, so...More

I've been to Green-Wood a few times over the years, but recently spent a long afternoon there with a friend who knows the place well. Green-Wood is certainly grand and stately, thanks to decades of restoration. There are many famous people, New York high society,...More

I went into the cemetery and stayed after twilight. I did not go into the crypts with the tourists but the walk around and research I needed to get done was more important. I hear wonderful things about the entire tour.
