Recurring Event Birding in Peace

Birding in Peace

Just because it's winter, doesn't mean that there aren't interesting birds to discover in Green-Wood. For some bird species that migrate south after the breeding season, Brooklyn is their Miami during the cold months. Spend the early morning exploring the cemetery, looking for overwintering waterfowl, nuthatches, woodpeckers, sparrows, finches and any half-hardy birds that decided to stick around. By February we'll see some of the early north-bound birds beginning to trickle back into the area.

Recurring Event Twilight Tour

There are few places more atmospheric than a cemetery at dusk - and Green-Wood is top notch when it comes to beauty and atmosphere. As the sun sets on 478 spectacular acres, you'll weave through stunning landscapes and visit the graves of fascinating figures in New York and American history. This not-to-be-missed walking tour ends with a visit to the Catacombs, which are normally closed to the public.

Baseball Greats of Green-Wood

Batter up! To lead off the 2018 season, we welcome baseball historian Tom Gilbert for a tour of Green-Wood’s ball-playing pioneers. With Tom and Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman, you’ll visit the monuments and gravestones of Henry Chadwick, the Father of Baseball, who invented the game’s scoring system; James Creighton, baseball’s first national star; Charles Ebbets, owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers; and many others who played a role in making baseball America’s National Pastime.

Women Who Walked Ahead

From the first woman to sing live on radio, Eugenia Farrar, to the first black female doctor in New York State, Susan Smith McKinney Steward, this trolley tour celebrates the pioneering women of Green-Wood, including Caroline Weldon, a widowed Brooklyn artist who traveled to the Dakota Territory to become an assistant and liaison to Sitting Bull (Weldon’s story was featured in the 2017 film, “Woman Walks Ahead” starring Jessica Chastain). Plus many others whose stories are remarkable and inspiring.
