At Green-Wood Cemetery, visitors who are seeking out the final resting places of homegrown greats such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and F.A.O. Schwarz will be greeted with life-affirming (and photo-ready) views of New York City. Credited as an inspiration for Manhattan’s Central Park, this National Historic Landmark in Brooklyn has been a must-visit attraction since the 1860s when the cemetery was known to attract half a million visitors each year. Over 150 years later, the hills of Green-Wood Cemetery are still alive, providing sweeping views of the 478-acre property, the Manhattan skyline, and more.
