Sunday Walk Through Green-wood Cemetery
Quiet, a little chilly, and alive with geese, the cemetery was perfect for a Sunday walk. Green-wood cemetery is located in Brooklyn, and is one of the first rural cemeteries in America, founded in 1838. It is 48 acres and contains seven lakes. I make new discoveries everytime I visit, this time it was the huge, white koi fish that looked almost robotic. (See in photo below) It is home to 560,000 permanent residents, including Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Horace Greeley, Civil War generals, baseball legends, politicians, artists, entertainers and inventors.
