Lai-Chung Houlihan • Green-Wood Cemetery

Tourist Attraction: Green-Wood Cemetery

First heard about this place because they give away free mulch!  I also have a client close to it, so I looked through the fence one spring day and saw the cherry trees in bloom and decided I have to go check it out.   One warning: It is not a park so don't try to get too comfortable with your shoes off!  It is a very high point in Brooklyn, so you can see the Verrazano Bridge and Manhattan from there. The little lanes and paths named after trees and shrubs are so adorable.  Perfect for dates all year round!
