The evolution of the Brooklyn tour continues. In the next few weeks I will take some time to write more of a detail post about the current tour and what it entails, as it changed quite a bit since its inception. But the big development is that I’m adding Green-Wood cemetery. I’ve been toying with the idea for a while, and experimenting with Green-Wood during the last 3 tours, and frankly I dont know why I havent done it sooner
If you dont know what I’m talking about, wondering why I’m adding a cemetery to a food tour, a simple Google or Google Images browsing will answer that. The proximity to the current route also makes sense. If you booked a future tour and are not interested in Green-Wood, just let me know. As it stands right now though, this is a quick 30 minute stop, unless anyone wants to spend more time there. Simply put, this is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. The reason you dont hear much about it is because of the difficulties for tourists to get there.
And no this is not Nicolas Cage future grave pictured below. His Pyramid is much taller. And if you just happened to have a Nicolas Cage fetish (seriously, who doesnt these days), we can also visit Cage’s favorite restaurant in Brighton Beach.
