My View: Green-Wood Cemetery

Yesterday my husband and I took a lovely Autumn stroll through the nearby Green-Wood Cemetery here in Brooklyn. Founded in 1838, Green-Wood quickly became the place to be buried and to visit in Victorian era New York City. As the New York Times wrote in 1866, "It is the ambitions of the New Yorker to live upon Fifth Avenue, to take his airings in the (Central) Park, and to sleep with his fathers in Green-Wood."
It really is a beautiful place to visit with ornate monuments, peaceful hills, and views of Manhattan. Enjoy my shots below.
