    I went for a special night time event which was fantastic! it always happens around Halloween time so keep an eye out for tickets. it gets crowded so avoid the catacombs and check them out another day

    Historian Jim Mackin calls it “a treasure of nature with champion trees, four ponds, the highest point in Brooklyn and a large colony of monk parakeets that live in the spires of its entrance gates.”

    You can cover a lot more area if you drive in and cruise around. Park somewhere in the center and venture out on foot.

    Despite what you may think, this place has an incredible history. It also has beautiful, well maintained grounds. Their events are often worth the expense.

    One of the most amazing cemeteries. Fantastic history and amazing Victorian stone architecture in the mausoleums. Great place to walk around on a crisp fall day.

    There is a restroom in the chapel close to the 25th st entrance, right by the lake. The chapel is also lovely, but may be in use for services.
