GL Day Ender: CUE Tour of Green-Wood Cemetery

November 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Here’s this weekend’s tour from our friends at the Center for the Urban Environment:

Written in Stone: Tales of Green-Wood. Sunday, November 9, 1 – 3:30 pm – with Ruth Edebohls. The monuments and mausoleums of Green-Wood have many fascinating stories—and not just about the many famous figures buried there. Visit final resting places and hear the stories of the Indian Princess, a hero dog, the heart-broken husband who waved good-bye to his wife in the morning never to see her again, the man who built “The Funny Place,” and many more. Walk may be hilly and strenuous. Meet at the Gothic Arch inside the entrance at 25th Street and Fifth Avenue. Take the R train to 25th Street and walk up one block to the cemetery. Fees: $13.00 Non-Members, $10.00 CUE Members, $8.00 Seniors & Students. For information call (718) 788-8500, ext. 217, www.thecue.org.
