This event is sold out. Make sure you never miss out on tickets again! Green-Wood members get access to tickets weeks before the general public. Join today.

This special two-part trolley tour will examine the connections between the residents of Green-Wood and the iconic Brooklyn Army Terminal. Our afternoon starts with a visit to the graves of those who built, worked, and served at the Army Terminal, as well as other important figures in the development of Brooklyn’s military and industrial waterfront over the past century. Then we head to the Army Terminal, designed by renowned architect Cass Gilbert and completed in 1919, to discover its past as an important transportation and logistics hub through World War II until the mid-1960’s and its future as home to over 100 companies in a wide range of industries. This tour last 2.5 hours, and it does require some walking and climbing stairs. The tour will begin and end at the Green-Wood Cemetery.

$25 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $30 for nonmembers.
