Halloween is over but the amazing funerary architecture remains in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.  If you have never been to this tribute to the high art of the rituals of death during the Victorian Era you have some wonderful surprises in store:  three lakes, winding pathways with big old trees, a chapel with Tiffany windows and fanciful monuments, angels, and pyramids. Once the second most visiting place after Niagara Falls, it is a treasure trove for Urban Sketchers.  And, since it is the highest point in Brooklyn there are views of the harbor as well. You can even see Minerva rising the salute the Statue of Liberty at the crest of the Battle Hill.  Oh, and did I mention that of the 1/2 million graves there are such diverse notables as Leonard Bernstein, the Tiffany's, Samuel Morse, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. 

The weather should be good so let's stay outdoors as long as we can.  Join us for a one of our last opportunities to sketch outdoors before the weather turns cold.
