Green-Wood Cemetery Trolley Tour on Sunday

**Update** The trolley tour is sold out, but the Book Signing and Q&A still has space. Reservations are required!
Thanks to commenter lostinbrooklyn for the update.

This Sunday Green-Wood Cemetery hosts a guided trolley tour with Alexandra Kathryn Mosca. The title of the tour is Images of America: Green-Wood Cemetery, and it starts at 1 PM on Sunday. The trolley tour is $20, or $10 for Historic Fund members. Space is limited, so call for reservations. Meet at 1 PM inside the main entrance at 25th Street at 5th Avenue.

Please call 718.768.7300 for reservations.
From the brochure:

Join Alexandra Kathryn Mosca, author of the just-published Images of America: Green-Wood Cemetery, in a trolley tour honoring Green-Wood’s “Who’s Who” of 19th- and early 20th-century New York. Visit the monuments and learn about the fascinating lives of Henry Chadwick (“The Father of Baseball”), DeWitt Clinton (New York governor and main proponent of construction of the Erie Canal), Charles Feltman (inventor of the hot dog), Dr. Susan McKinney Steward (first African-American female doctor in New York) and more. Mosca, a regular contributor to magazines such as American Cemetery and American Funeral Director, is joined by Steven Estroff, Green-Wood’s manager of education and outreach. A question and answer session and author book signing follow the tour in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel. Refreshments will be served. SPECIAL tour and book OFFER: Spend $30 and receive BOTH the trolley tour and a copy of Ms. Mosca’s book (a $20 value). (The offer is $20 for Historic Fund members.)

I was able to get on the tour today and had lots of fun. This tour was very popular. Several people showed up without reservations, but there was no room. The trolley was booked solid.
Good news is I heard today there is another tour by the author scheduled for April 26th. I would reserve this one early. In the meantime, you can get the book at Green-Wood,Amazon or B&N. I've been going through mine since I got home. I love it!
