Join Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman and Morbid Anatomy founder Joanna Ebenstein for an illustrated conversation about Brooklyn’s Coney Island, its connections to Green-Wood, and the astounding amusements that made it an international super-attraction for decades. At Coney Island in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, you could visit exotic “native villages” and enjoy a dizzying assortment of death and disaster themed immersive amusements in which you could choose being buried alive, experiencing the San Francisco earthquake, or living through the biblical apocalypse.

This conversation is part of our new series of virtual programs about the history of Green-Wood and its permanent residents, Zooming in on History. On the day of the program, participants will receive a Zoom link and access code.

$5 / free for members.
