I admit to spending a lot of time in cemeteries but never at an event like this one. On the night of October 15, 2016, Atlas Obscura and Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery invited fifteen hundred New Yorkers to explore the 19th-century garden cemetery’s expansive grounds. The guests made their own pathways by the light of the moon through the evening in order to discover hidden surprises, unusual entertainment and incredible access to rare historic spaces.
