What has 478 acres of hills, valleys, the highest point in Brooklyn,  incredible trees, 3 lakes, a chapel with Tiffany windows, incredible funerary architecture, a resident flock of green parrots, and very scary Halloween Decorations?  Greenwood Cemetery is the answer!  Join us for some (not so) spooky fun!

Built in the style of Victorian Cemteries, with parkland attributes for strolling and picnicking, this gem of New York is open to the public and ripe for urban sketching.
