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.

Many distinguished and noteworthy New Yorkers found their permanent residences at Green-Wood—it was, and still is, the place to be buried. Among them, however, are also those whose reputations are not as admirable, including Fanny White, famed New York City courtesan and brothel manager; Emma Cunningham, who was tried for the murder of Harvey Burdell (who was strangled and stabbed fifteen times) amidst rumors of greed, lust, and depravity; and the Dublin-born Kitty Terry, who ran away to Liverpool at fifteen, where two high-end con men courted her and together formed a romantic triplet. Expert tour guide Ruth Edebohls will share tales of their alleged misdeeds and unscrupulous behavior.

Afterward, the trolley will head to Kings County Distillery in the Brooklyn Navy Yard where visitors will see first-hand how whiskey is made and enjoy a tasting of four delectable varieties.
