Carry 175 years of history in your hand with our mobile app

We are very proud of our app, “Green-Wood Discover”! This first-ever historic cemetery app allows you to experience Green-Wood as you never have before. The enhanced walking tour route includes author/journalist Pete Hamill describing his love of Green-Wood; recent photographs of each of its 40 stops; a cemetery map; audio of songs (our favorite: “You Naughty, Naughty Men,” the hit song from the first American Musical, “The Black Crook”), poems, and dramatic readings; video of our Monk Parakeets and the view from Battle Hill of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline; and tours based on specific themes (like Architecture, the Civil War, Gardens and Trees, Interesting Inscriptions, Restorations, Sculpture, and Then and Now Photographs).

Some of the app enthusiasts who came out to try out our brand new "Green-Wood Discovery."

It can be enjoyed as you walk the cemetery ground’s (now you can stand at Leonard Bernstein’s grave and hear music that he composed for “West Side Story”) or as a virtual tour from anywhere in the world. It truly allows you to experience Green-Wood as it has never been enjoyed before-with all sorts of sidebars, including photographs of 25th Street as it looked more than a century ago (Ice Cream Saloon!). In all, we estimate that walking the entire app will take about 2 or 3 hours.

David Miller of "The Artful Conspirators" theater troupe was on hand. David did the introduction of Dorothy Abrahams, who recited actress Kate Claxton's account of the Brooklyn Theatre Fire of 1876, in which almost 300 people died. David also sang the "Beecher-Tilton Scandal" song and recited the poem to Fannie the dog. He reported that it was very strange to be up on Battle Hill and to hear his own voice coming out of the Smartphones of other app-users.
