Spring blooms at The Green-Wood Cemetery

May 5, 2020 Editorial Staff

As more smoke than usual poured out of smokestacks in the cemetery’s crematorium, photographer Tom Hilton chose to focus his camera lens on the spring blooms at Green-Wood. In wordless tribute, we offer those here, as the dogwoods, redbuds and other beautiful flora thrive in this rare National Landmark treasure.

Incorporated in 1838, The Green-Wood Cemetery stretches across 478 pastoral acres in Brooklyn and boasts extraordinary works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century sculpture, statuary and architecture, and is home to thousands of historic figures. Green-Wood has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the United States Department of the Interior.
