The Green-Wood Cemetery has long been considered one of the world's most beautiful cemeteries and is the final resting place of nearly 600,000 persons, including some of history's most memorable figures. Since its establishment in 1838, The Green-Wood Cemetery has offered a dignified selection of burial options including an urn garden, columbarium, community and private family mausoleums, as well as traditional, in-ground burials, all in a historic, non-sectarian setting. With 478 acres filled with thousands of trees, flowering shrubs and four lakes, The Green-Wood Cemetery offers eternal tranquility among timeless beauty.
Families may choose a single grave, with a capacity of three interments. Two-grave or larger lots are also available. We will be pleased to discuss your family needs with you. For more information, please contact one of our counselors at 718-768-7300.
The Green-Wood Cemetery is conveniently located and easily accessible by major highways and public transportation. We are a full-service non-sectarian, not-for-profit cemetery and all funds are used for maintenance and improvements.
