Happily Never After

February 13th , 12:00pm 2:00pm

Love and death. They have inspired artists, writers, and philosophers for millennia. But do you know they are perfectly intertwined? At a cemetery!

Forget the box of chocolates and sappy card—treat the special someone in your life to an exploration of Green-Wood. Along the way you will hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic—and doomed—affairs. You’ll learn about star-crossed Victorian lovers, Charlotte Canda and Charles Jarrett; Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.

Meet at the Main Entrance Gate by Fifth Avenue and 25th Street.

$30 / $25 for members. There are no paper or e-tickets. Attendees will be checked in by name.
