The 478-acre Green-Wood Cemetery is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year with an exhibition opening Wednesday at the Museum of the City of New York.
It is the first case of vandalism at the cemetery, which was founded in 1838, in 30 years. The oldest memorial that was vandalized belongs to a general that dates back to the War of 1812.
The future of a Queens landmark is uncertain. Borough leaders said they have been told that the “Triumph of Civic Virtue” fountain will be moved, but the city denies it.
Performers in The Spoon River Project aren’t planning on dancing on anyone’s grave—only acting.
The 478-acre expanse of greenery and statuary covering the cemetery’s rolling hills is believed to be the final resting place of about 8,000 Civil War veterans.
