Green-Wood is home to a spectacular collection of 19th-century architectural gems by some of the most famed architects in American history. Designing works to immortalize their patrons, many –including James Renwick, Jacob Wrey Mould, and Gamaliel King, among others – have also established their own permanent residences here. This walking tour explores the critical role architects have played in transforming the landscapes of not only Green-Wood, but New York City. Comfortable footwear is recommended.
