I've been here several times and have taken the trolley tour, taken a tour of the crypts, and also visited for the Battle of Brooklyn commemoration. There's a lot of interesting history here and it's definitely worth the visit. No bikes allowed inside the grounds,...More

Took a tour with guide James Henry of NYC Cemetery Tours. I learned so much about the history of this stunning place, as well as interesting tidbits about a few of the half million “permanent residents.” The architecture is gorgeous, and the landscaping incredible. I...More

The tours here are great--informative, fun and beautiful. If you want you can bring a picnic to enjoy the parkland as visitors did in the 1800s. (Not that many people do it today, but it is lovely). The vistas are gorgeous.

I have been to the cemetery many times for many reasons. Some sorrowful, some educational and something fun. Come to Greenwood cemetery to memorialize loved ones or check out their website for educational historical tour, Birding or just a nice walk around. But please remember...More

Didn’t look at photos before going and so didn’t anticipate it being so hilly. Also, while the main “streets” are accessible, the paths that cut through some areas are not! Not complaining, it is a beautiful resting place and the free map is absolutely excellent...More

Impressed by the grounds of this 478 acre cemetary park. They have taken care of this area and improved with the generations.
