Preserving Identity

Sunday, November 11, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

This trolley tour will focus on the monuments of immigrants and underrepresented groups, for whom written records, newspaper clippings, and obituaries are often nonexistent. And for whom, the gravestone and cemetery records – an oft overlooked resource – are the only way to preserve their legacy. While all New Yorkers play in important role in the lives of their families and their communities, some – especially in the nineteenth century – leave very few traces for posterity.

Alive at Green-Wood

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Sunday, November 11, 2018

There's a lot more to a cemetery than death. There's life - a lot of it. In fact, for Green-Wood, the natural environment is a critical part of our future. Join us for this new walking tour to explore the potential of the Cemetery's 478 acres as a public garden, a distinction that means much more than manicured lawns and azaleas. It means that we work to teach our visitors about Green-Wood's ecology and environmental diversity. As an accredited arboretum, the Cemetery has over 7,000 trees and a master plan that includes new interpretive panels (signs) across the grounds. You'll learn so much about the natural beauty and wildlife at Green-Wood that you'll want to come back and give your own tour to family and friends!

An event every month that begins at 6:30pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Tuesday, November 13, 2018

The Death Café is inspired by the centuries-old European salon (or café), an informal gathering to discuss philosophical, political or scientific ideas. In 2011, British entrepreneur Jon Underwood brought this concept to discussions of the most universal topic of all: death. Underwood’s intention was to provide an opportunity to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” Today, there are over 4,400 Death Cafes in 26 countries around the world.
