Traveling opens the door to new possibilities, where every step can lead to new adventures and discoveries or—for those less fortunate—tragedy and woe. Join us as we delve into the ill-fated voyages memorialized at Green-Wood, spanning from the seas to the streets to the skies. You’ll learn about the devastating 1960 plane crash that changed Park Slope forever; the heart-wrenching tale of Robert “Little Dougie” Spedden who survived the sinking of the Titanic, only to have his life cut short soon after, and many more stories that serve as poignant reminders of the perils often faced by those who dare venture afar.

Price: $25, and $20 for members

Walking Tour
(see details below)

Please note that if only 1 ticket shows as available during the purchase process that is the last ticket available.

Before Purchasing A Ticket, Please Note:

  • Attendees must follow ALL instructions and guidance from Cemetery staff and ambassadors.
  • Tickets: There is no need to print tickets! Attendees will be checked in by name.
  • Where To Go: Check-in takes place at the meadow near the Main Entrance at Fifth Avenue and 25th Street (500 25th Street).
  • For Your Safety: We strongly encourage attendees to wear suitable footwear. The route includes several steep hills, some stairs, as well as grassy and uneven terrain. There is no place to sit down during the tour. Due to the challenging nature of the route, this tour is not ADA compliant and is not recommended for children under the age of 10.
  • A Little More About Safety: Unless it is a medical emergency, it is not possible to leave during the tour. Please consider your own abilities–as well as those in your party–before purchasing tickets.
  • Refunds and exchanges: Ticket sales are final. No exchanges or refunds unless the tour is canceled. If a rain date is scheduled, tickets will be honored only on that date.
  • Inclement Weather Policy: We monitor the weather throughout the day for the best chance of proceeding with the tour, and will not make a final decision until at least 3 hours before the start of the tour. Cancellations will be announced via Eventbrite email blasts, so check your email and spam folders.
  • Feeling Sick? Stay home if you are feeling sick or running a fever.
