Cubans at Green-Wood

October 13, 2018, 11:00am1:00pm


Since it opened in 1838, Green-Wood has been the resting place of myriad immigrant communities who made new homes for themselves and their families in New York City. To honor this rich legacy, join John Jay professor and author of Sugar, Cigars, and Revolution: The Making of Cuban New York, Lisandro Perez and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman for a special trolley tour exploring famed Cuban immigrants of the nineteenth century who are interred here.


$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members


Green-Wood trolley tours are fully accessible and ADA compliant. In order to accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility device on the trolley, advance arrangements must be made. Please call (718) 210-3080, ext. 1. Please note that portions of the tour take place outside the trolley and may require exiting the vehicle on multiple occasions. Please contact the Historic Fund for more information.


Check-in will take place by the Gothic Arch at our Main Entrance at 5th Avenue and 25th Street. Trolley tours are run rain or shine, with the exception of dangerous conditions as determined by Green-Wood. Click here for our inclement weather policy.
