From musical programs to monument-making workshops; tree-pruning classes to art installations, Green-Wood turns learning into enlightenment.
Green-Wood’s historical holdings of artifacts and archives are a treasure trove for family researchers, genealogists, and New York historians alike.
Across its core feature categories of art, history, and nature, Green-Wood sustains a deep and abiding commitment to preservation and restoration.
On September 17, 2017, the Tenth Annual DeWitt Clinton Award for Excellence went to Dozier Hasty, publisher of The Brooklyn Eagle, and Nancy Havens-Hasty, President of Havens Advisors LLC. The awardees share a particular passion for Green-Wood’s Annual Memorial Day Concert—which Nancy has twice conducted.
The benefit evening began with cocktails under the Arch and a serenade of jazz by Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers. Remarks were made by Green-Wood President Richard Moylan, trustee Malcolm Mackay, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and others. Two debut films highlighted Green-Wood’s commitment to art, nature, and history for generations to come. The evening ended with dancing and dessert under the moonlight at the Gothic Arch.
