On view May 15th to October 13th

Celebrate the 175th anniversary of this National Historic Landmark. A Beautiful Way To Go: New York’s Green-Wood Cemetery is a brand new exhibit curated and presented by the Museum of the City of New York.

Featuring original artifacts, sculptures, drawings and Hudson River paintings; historic documents; and photographs, the exhibit focuses on several aspects of Green-Wood’s history and imminence – it’s many illustrious permanent residents, the rural cemetery movement that spawned bucolic burial grounds across the nation, and the expert art, architecture and design of Green-Wood’s 478 acres.

The exhibit will also detail what’s ahead for Green-Wood and what the next 175 years will look like at this esteemed landmark.

For more information, visit MCNY Online or call 212-534-1672. The MCNY is located at 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street in New York City.

Also, on June 1st Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman will lead a members-only tour of the exhibit. Click here for more information about the tour.
