Climb aboard a fascinating and memorable two-hour narrated trolley tour of Brooklyn’s 478-acre Green-Wood Cemetery, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As we ride though this National Historic Landmark among its perfectly manicured landscape. our knowledgeable guide will provide us with fascinating stories of the cemetery’s most famous and nearly forgotten permanent residents. Some of the most notable residents here include Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Morse, Horace Greeley along with baseball legends, politicians, artist, entertainers, inventors, and Civil War generals. The impressive architecture of the monuments and mausoleums dotting the rolling hills in Classical, Egyptian, Gothic, and Romanesque styles are a definite sight to see. Spectacular views of Manhattan await, and you’ll stand in the same space where George Washington and his troops fought in the Battle of Brooklyn. From here we drive to the nearby original Junior’s Restaurant on Flatbush Avenue where we are treated to an included lunch. This afternoon we visit Brooklyn’s trendy historic, waterfront neighborhood, DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). There will be time to stroll the cobblestone streets, pop into the stylish converted warehouses that are now boutiques, take in fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline and browse Brooklyn’s largest flea market.
