Lively ceme­tery

Los Angeles Times - - WELLNESS TRAVEL -

The Travel sec­tion missed the finest ceme­tery in the coun­try— Green-Wood in Brook­lyn, N.Y. ( www.green-wood.com). It is a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark. Many fa­mous peo­ple are buried there.

Green-Wood is a living ceme­tery, not just one to wan­der around in search of tomb­stones.

It in­cludes ar­chi­tec­ture, stat­ues and Tif­fany glass win­dows. It is also an ar­bore­tum and bird sanc­tu­ary.

Tram rides, lec­tures and other events dur­ing the year are con­ducted.

As a ge­neal­ogy ad­dict, I can at­test to this be­ing a well-cared-for and cher­ished place. BAR­BARA BODDEN Glen­dale
