And When I Die: Green-Wood Cemetery Tour 1

I was at the Battle Of Brooklyn commemoration at Green-Wood Cemetery yesterday. The "link" from "Save The Country", Save The Vista to "And When I Die" is Laura Nyro. Unfortunately I don't have her recording to back this slide show made up of images of some of the famous folks in Green-Wood Cemetery. Info comes from that great resource Here's part of the audio I recorded of Barnet Schecter's tour. Also heard is Jeffrey Richman, Green-Wood historian. Jeff informed the group that Green-Wood has a hyphen because there was a hyphen craze in the mid to late 1800's. For more on Jeff go here

More on Barnet Schecter, for his great online, do it yourself walking tour of the Battle Of New York go here
