1 p.m. Murder, Mayhem & Disasters of Green-Wood Walking Tour

November 18, 2012, 1:00pm3:30pm


Serene, beautiful Green-Wood is the final resting place for many victims — and perpetrators — of violence. Join Historic Fund tour guide Ruth Edebohls to hear some of their fascinating stories. The Morro Castle disaster and possible murder of her captain, the sinking of the steamship Arctic, the Malbone Street train crash, a suicide on the grave of a beloved wife, the arsenic and clam chowder murder, Titanic survivors and the Brooklyn Theatre fire are just some of the tragic tales you’ll hear amidst a landscape of late fall beauty. Walk may be hilly and strenuous — wear good walking shoes.

Walking tour: $10 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund / $15 for non-members. Reservations recommended.
