New York City is famous for many things – hot dogs, the Empire State Building, pigeons. And add to that list cemeteries. Author and funeral director Alexandra Kathryn Mosca leads us on an armchair tour of cemeteries both large and small (and we are talking really small) throughout the five boroughs. Her new book, Gardens of Stone, explores how memorials and monuments help to tell the tale of New York City, from its humble beginnings to its emergence as a world capital. She will be joined by John Rousmaniere, who has compiled an illustrated history of Evergreens Cemetery (which straddles Brooklyn and Queens), titled Green Oasis in Brooklyn, and Richard L. Simpson, who recently published a book on Staten Island’s Moravian Cemetery.

Free to attend, RSVP recommended. Please register using the Eventbrite box below.

This program takes place in our Modern Chapel just to the right after passing through the Gothic Arches at the main entrance. All events will take place rain or shine. Click here for our inclement weather policy.
