|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until Saturday, November 30, 2019

Long after Green-Wood’s gates close to the public, explore its historic grounds under the cover of night. You’ll visit some of the cemetery’s most intriguing monuments, including the elaborate memorial to John Matthews (the “Soda Fountain King”), Charles Calverley’s marble portrait of Precious Georgie, the formerly unmarked grave of William Poole (aka, “Bill the Butcher”), and Harvey Burdell whose famous murder in 1887 resulted in the criminal trial of the 19th Century.

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.
