From the time you enter through the awesome gates of Green-wood Cemetery, you feel you've gone through the looking glass. Thousands of monk parrots greet you, creating a surreal experience as you watch and listen to them enjoying the grounds and massive nesting areas within...More

Very large but a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon. There are plaques in certain parts commemorating some of the revolution battles that occurred there. No one except Basquiat is of much interest unless you're a war buff... There are some bakeries and other...More

No matter what the weather is the Green-Wood cemetery looks absolutely amazing, wether it's winter or summer, overcast, rain, day or night, no matter. This place really brings you back to old Victorian era and it's splendor, even in death.

We've been here four or five times and it has never disappointed. It's huge. I recommend taking a tour, at least for your first visit.

I know that during the Memorial Day Concert, people are picnicking everywhere and when my son had a field trip there, they ate their lunches on the grass. Hope that helps.
