About this Event
Love and death. They have inspired artists, writers, and philosophers for millennia. But do you know they are perfectly intertwined? At a cemetery!
Forget the box of chocolates and sappy card—treat the special someone in your life to an exploration of Green-Wood. Along the way you will hear tales of the lovesick and the heartbroken, as well as tawdry details of dramatic—and doomed—affairs. On this walking tour, you’ll learn about star-crossed Victorian lovers, Charlotte Canda and Charles Jarrett; Henry Ward Beecher’s scandalous affair with Elizabeth Tilton; the tragic death of Theodore Roosevelt’s wife on Valentine’s Day; and more.
Check in takes place at the meadow near the Main Entrance by Fifth Avenue and 25th Street.
$30/$25 for members
