During our visit to the Brooklyn Historical Society we learned the history of Greenwood Cemetery. At the time to me Greenwood seem like a very historical landmark and once i actually visited the cemetery i noticed why it is so important. The first two things i noticed were how big the cemetery it self is and how beautiful the environment around the tombs is. The simple fact that they have multiple lakes/ponds of water was surprising to me, specially since after all is only a cemetery. This also made me realize why the cemetery was advertised so much and why certain families are willing to pay big money be to be buried there.
