Green-Wood Cemetery: Part 3

From modest to ornate, headstones of all ages and types can be found at Green-Wood. Early Dutch settlers to Wall Street Barons. The pond is really a nice feature. I’ve visited the cemetery three times and have probably only covered 30% of the site.

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.

Many crypts are built into hillsides, the architecture of the entranceway is Gothic and very detailed; it seems to change colors with the changing light of day. From a distance it almost has a Disneyland-esque sensibility. Many of the wealthiest of New York are buried here as well as historical figures.
