Ahoy New York!

June 24, 2017, 11:00am1:00pm



New York’s harbor is at the center of the city’s evolution from colonial trading outpost to global capital for business and industry. Join Jeff Richman, Green-Wood’s historian, and Marian Betancourt, author of the recently-published Heroes of New York Harbor: Tales from the City’s Port, for a special trolley tour exploring Green-Wood’s permanent residents who set their sights on this famous port of call. You will learn about the men who spearheaded the Erie Canal, Brooklyn Bridge, and Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel; maritime disasters that inspired iconic memorials like the Pilot’s Monument, men who served on the first ironclad warship USS Monitor, and much more.


$25 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $30 for nonmembers
