A beautiful and very large urban oasis in the midst of Brooklyn, well worth a visit for the amazing architecture of the tombs. Great views of the city. Specifically sought out the final resting places of Leonard Bernstein and F.A.O. Schwarz

If you are visiting New York City, or even if you live here, treat yourself to a tour -- by trolley or on foot -- of Brooklyn’s amazing Greenwood Cemetery. It really does feel more like an open-air museum, as other reviewers have said. Greenwood...More

I went into the cemetery and stayed after twilight. I did not go into the crypts with the tourists but the walk around and research I needed to get done was more important. I hear wonderful things about the entire tour.
