Green-Wood Cemetery: Skylights for the Dead

DSC_9351-001 DSC_9353-001 DSC_9409-001 DSC_9412-001 DSC_9427-001At the top of a hill in the cemetery there are rows of these Skylights for the crypts below. I’m not sure the dead are appreciating the extra light they are receiving, but……as with all burial places, they are probably more for the living than the deceased. I just found these rows of skylights fascinating and even peered down into the one with the broken glass. Design-wise I am not sure what period these skylights were placed there. Guessing early 20th Century…. but????? Green-Wood should be on everyone’s Bucket List.
