In fact, since its founding in the nineteenth century as part of the Rural Cemetery Movement, before there was a Central Park, Green-Wood has been a place to engage with the natural world in an urban environment. Whether walking through the cherry tree allée, encountering the green monk parakeets that live in the Arch, or standing beneath a towering dawn redwood, you'll learn about the environmental diversity that makes this Cemetery one of the city's great natural resources. Comfortable footwear is recommended. Please note, tour route is on grass and uneven terrain. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=364943 Green-Wood Cemetery Green-Wood Cemetery
