Over the past decade, Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery has become one of the most unusual and exciting places in New York City for public programs, performances, concerts, and tours. It is an accredited Level III Arboretum and, at 478 acres, one of Brooklyn's largest green spaces. As a National Historic Landmark whose beginnings date back to 1838, Green-Wood welcomed more than 330,000 visitors in 2018 alone. Some visited the graves of the famous, or the infamous. Many thousands came specifically to attend public programs and events, to take a tour, enjoy performances and outdoor films, or to hear a concert. Green-Wood's bold ambition for the 21st century is to become a major cultural destination in New York City, by providing extensive public programming and visitor services, while maintaining its status as one of the nation's most beautiful, historic landscapes. Its unique combination of art, history and nature make Green-Wood a beloved destination for visitors from around the world.
