We had a short visit at the end of a rainy day and didn’t see as much as we wanted to. It’s a large, very old cemetery with lots of trees, statuary, and monuments. Looks very worthwhile for spending an afternoon of exploration. The main...More

I keep meaning to review this place. It's very interesting for a nice walk and to look at the gravestones/tombs, but not a lot of guided tours that I've seen. Check the website for events because I can see those being very interesting.

Come here on a nice day and just wander around. You'll understand why it was one of the most visited tourist attraction in the US in the 19th century.

This is a well-maintained and beautifully sculptured park-like cemetery. Back in the day, this was a place for people to bring their families for a "day in the park:. Buautifully designed and maintained. A great place to peacefully enjoy the sculptures.

What a lovely stroll to the highest point of Brooklyn and where the largest battle of the war for independence was waged. Fascinating family plots and elaborate burial monument and crypts, surrounded by majestic woods and hills. A must see
