“It is the ambition of the New Yorker to live upon Fifth Avenue, to take his airings in the [Central] Park, and to sleep with his fathers in Green-Wood.” – New York Times, 1866
To this day, Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn is one of the most beautiful places in New York. It was built as part of the rural cemetery movement which created cemeteries that were like beautiful parks and people were encouraged to visit. Guest still visit today, and you can see why in these gorgeous photos of Green-Wood Cemetery during winter.
