These 478 acres are the final resting place for nearly 600,000 people, including some of history's most memorable figures. – In Short
Established in 1838, Green-Wood is regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cemeteries, with trees and ponds as well as sculptures and buildings by some of the most prominent artists and architects of their times. Among the nearly 600,000 people buried here are the mortal remains of Leonard Bernstein, Samuel F.B. Morse, Horace Greeley, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Henry Ward Beecher, "Wizard of Oz" Frank Morgan and "Boss" Tweed.

Death Be Proud – Paris has Montparnasse and Pere-Lachaise. Brooklyn has Green-Wood. The burial ground of glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, toy magnate F.A.O. Schwartz, dancer/courtesan Lola Montez and composer Leonard Bernstein, this eternal resting place also has graves for historical figures like Elias Howe (the inventor of the sewing machine), Horace Greeley (Civil War editor for the New York Tribune), and Albert Anastasia (a mobster whose nickname was the Lord High Executioner). Not too far from Prospect Park, Green-Wood is the goth's alternative to Brooklyn's ever-popular Botanical Gardens. Walking tours are available. I can't get over how well-kept the sprawling grounds are maintained. For me, Green-Wood is a secret pleasure.
