Green Wood Cemetary

Last weekend my husband and I visited the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.  This historic cemetery was established in 1838 when Brooklyn was a rural area.  A number of prominent New Yorkers and several veterans of the Civil War are burred there.  In 2006 the cemetery was given national landmark status and while it still has an active burial section many of the visitors are exploring not to visit the grave sites of loved ones but to see the beautiful old monuments.  On the Saturday morning I visited the cemetery was nearly deserted and had a beautiful, and creepy, atmosphere.

  2. Ooohh, I love how captivatingly eerie (in a good way) and timelessly beautiful all of these fantastic fall photos are. They're helping keep the spirit of Halloween alive and well for me even longer this year.
