MURDER, MAYHEM, AND DISASTER!

December 16, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

| $15 - $20

Green-Wood’s serene landscape is the final resting place for perpetrators and victims of headline-grabbing crimes and disasters spanning the last century and a half. This trolley ride through the cemetery uncovers their terrifying and tragic tales. Visitors will hear of the SS Morro Castle disaster of 1930 and possible murder of her captain; the sinking of the steamship Arctic in 1854; the 1918 Malbone Street train crash (along today’s B and Q train routes) that killed 97 people; a suicide on the grave of a beloved wife; Titanic survivors; the 1876 Brooklyn Theatre fire (near today’s Cadman Plaza) that killed 278 people; a couple who mysteriously drowned together, among other captivating tales.

$20; $15 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended. If the trolley tour is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
