Where is Green-Wood Cemetery?
Frankly, a rather unusual but still worth seeing attraction of Brooklyn is the 1838 opened Green-Wood Cemetery, which is located near the Prospect Park in New York. Even those who normally only spend as little time as possible in cemeteries could feel comfortable here together with numerous squirrels and various birds.
