Scandals, Scalawags, and Murder Most Foul
Walking Tour
Saturday, July 16th, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

From the Green-wood Cemetery website:
You are invited to visit, with veteran tour guide Ruth Edebohls, some of Green-Wood Cemetery’s most nefarious residents. Green-Wood is the final resting place of many famous and heroic people, but some of its deceased denizens have a more blemished reputation. Murderers and the murdered, a sullied adulteress, a famous courtesan, gangsters, con men and schemers lie next to those of a more virtuous disposition. You'll also enjoy the visual delights of Green-Wood, its trees and ponds and its sculpture and buildings by the leading artists and architects of their time.

The walk may be hilly and strenuous--wear good walking shoes.

$10 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund / $15 for non-members. Reservations strongly recommended; click here to purchase advance tickets online or call 718-210-3080.
Meet inside the main entrance at 25th Street and 5th Avenue.
