Twilight Tour and Catacomb Visit
Thursday, May 16, 2012 5:30 to 8pm
Two is better than one on this exclusive joint tour with members of the Historic Districts Council and the Green-Wood Historic Fund. Among Green-Wood’s stunning spring landscape, mix and mingle with fellow members and some Green-Wood and HDC staff at an intimate outdoor reception.
After a drink and a snack, embark on a twilight tour with Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman. You’ll enjoy the many fascinating sites and stories of Green-Wood’s 478 acres, including the stunning sculpture of New York mayor (among other vocations) De Witt Clinton, the recently rediscovered Zouave Boy inside the Anderson Mausoleum, and gorgeous bronzes by August Saint-Gaudens in collaboration with Stanford White. You’ll take in Green-Wood’s rolling hills and spring blooms at dusk, and even get a chance to enter the catacombs, an area closed to the public.
