A peek at Green-Wood CemeteryThursday, June 18, 2009
I'd always wanted to visit Green-Wood Cemetery, in Brooklyn, and got an excuse to do so on Saturday. We had a quick, surreptitious picnic on the grounds with friends and then walked about for a bit afterward since it wasn't raining just yet. Green-Wood is the resting place of such notables as Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Louis Comfort Tiffany. It's vast (478 acres) -- would love to go back there sometime to explore it more thoroughly.
