Check-in takes place in the meadow at the Main Entrance at Fifth Avenue and 25th Street.

Green-Wood is an immense place, and a visit to our grounds can be overwhelming. What should you see? What direction should you go in? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! This new series of tours, led by the Cemetery’s expert staff, provides a behind-the-scenes exploration of art, history, and nature.

For this morning’s walking tour, Neela K. Wickremesinghe, Green-Wood’s Robert A. and Elizabeth Rohn Jeffe Director of Restoration and Preservation, will answer all of your burning questions about how she and her team preserve the legacy of the Cemetery’s over

570,0000 permanent residents. Who looks after the graves? How are monuments conserved? What goes into restoring a large mausoleum? Neela will also speak about the Cemetery’s workforce development program in the restoration trades, how her experience in restoration construction prepared her for work at Green-Wood, and some of her favorite projects from the past few years.

Neela has worked at Green-Wood since 2016 restoring, resetting, and managing Green-Wood’s vast monument collection.
