Trolley Tour Uncovers the Fascinating Femme Fatales of Green-Wood

Saturday, July 13, 2019
10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Many distinguished and noteworthy New Yorkers found their permanent residences at Green-Wood. It was, and still is, the place to be buried. Among the 574,000 souls interred here, there are, however, those whose reputations are not as sterling, including Fanny White, famed New York City courtesan and brothel manager; Emma Cunningham, who was tried for the murder of Harvey Burdell amidst rumors of greed, lust, and depravity; and the Dublin-born Kitty Terry, who ran away to Liverpool at fifteen, where two high-end con men courted her and together formed a romantic trio. Expert tour guide Ruth Edebohls will share tales of their alleged misdeeds and unscrupulous behavior.

Green-Wood – 25th Street at 5th Avenue, Brooklyn – Meet at the Gothic Arch.

Take the “R” train to 25th Street in Brooklyn and walk up the hill one block and into the Cemetery.

Free parking is available.

Trolley tour is $25; $20 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society.  Reservations are recommended. If the event is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
