Noon: Unique Sneak Peek Inside Green-Wood’s Most Famous Mausoleums

October 6, 2012, 12:00pm4:00pm


As part of the 2012 openhousenewyork weekend, Green-Wood will open many of its most famous and elaborate mausoleums for public perusal. This special look into Green-Wood’s architecture includes the family mausoleums of piano maker Henry Englehard Steinway and Stephen Whitney, one of the wealthiest men of the 19th century, as well as the Catacombs and other unique locations usually closed to visitors. Guides and actors in period costume will offer a glimpse into the lives of the people who now rest in these opulent structures.

Access to the cemetery grounds will include maps of the locations as well as “hop on, hop off” service on Green-Wood’s trolley between 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm on both days.
