Long after Green-Wood’s gates close to the public, explore its historic grounds under the cover of night. You’ll visit some of the cemetery’s most intriguing monuments, including the elaborate memorial to John Matthews (the “Soda Fountain King”), Charles Calverley’s marble portrait of Precious Georgie, the formerly unmarked grave of William Poole (aka, “Bill the Butcher”), and Harvey Burdell whose famous murder in 1887 resulted in the criminal trial of the 19th Century.


A flashlight and comfortable shoes are recommended for this tour. We know it’s Halloween season, but please do not arrive in costume. Attendees in costume, face-paint, or masks will not be admitted.


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


Check-in will take place by the Gothic Arch at our Main Entrance at 5th Avenue and 25th Street. Click here for our inclement weather policy.
