Trip to Green-Wood Cemetery

We walked around a big cemetery in Brooklyn last weekend (the main point of the trip was to eat Asian food in Sunset Park, but I’ve also wanted to go to the cemetery). There’s a Gothic revival entrance gate, with a huuuuge parakeet nest in the central tower.

Parakeets. Their noise gave them away before we could even see them.

Lots of fancy monuments and grave stones there.


With custom gates.

The founder of “The Truth Seeker” (some magazine?).

And a nice pond. Given the temperature, there weren’t many people out, but there were a couple of birdwatchers.

On a previous attempt to visit the cemetery, one group member thought it was creepy and then it started snowing.
