Join New York Adventure Club ( http://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes experience at Woodlawn Cemetery ( http://www.thewoodlawncemetery.org/ ), one of the largest cemeteries in New York City covering more than 400 acres and serving as the resting place for more than 300,000 people. Led by a cemetery docent, our unique experience will include: • An overview of Woodlawn Cemetery, and how it became the favored cemetery of so many prominent NYC families from the late 1800s to early 1900s
• An exploration of the cemetery’s grounds to see some of its most notable mausoleums, sculptures, and landscapes
• Exclusive access inside Gilded Age family mausoleums including the incredibly ornate Harkness, Harbeck, and Dunlop mausoleums, which contain Tiffany glass, Italian marble, and even a dead parrot Afterward, we'll grab lunch at the nearby Rambling House ( http://www.ramblinghousenyc.com/ ) in Woodlawn Heights (aka "Little Ireland")! While our tour will end on the south side of the cemetery, staff vehicles will drop us off on the northern side of the cemetery for those who want to join :) Click here to see pictures from one of our last trips to Woodlawn Cemetery!
