To walk through Green-Wood and discover its charm, history and beauty on your own is to follow in the footsteps of New Yorkers dating back to 1838.
We invite you — and welcome you — to come and explore Green-Wood for yourself. Interested in history, sculpture, birds, landscape, trees, and/or gardens? It is all here!
Our map of the cemetery is available FREE at any of our entrances.
In addition, we offer two Self-Guided Walking Tour books (each book is 45-pages, spiral-bound with map, photos and illustrations):
Remember to check our hours and other visiting information. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes for your walk.
On the weekends, our dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers are available to make suggestions and answer your questions at our Green-Wood Historic Fund cart, just inside our main entrance on Fifth Avenue and 25th Street. They also have books, Green-Wood T-shirts, tote bags and more available for sale. Your purchases help support the good works of The Green-Wood Historic Fund.
