7. Green-Wood Cemetery’s Into the Veil
On October 24th, Green-Wood Cemetery in partnership with Atlas Obscura will be hosting Into the Veil: An After Dark Exploration. The cemetery proclaims that their Gothic arch serves as a portal between “the land of the living and the realm of the dead.” Cross over and discover for yourself. With just a flashlight, attendees can explore the 478 acres on their own, weaving through 30 historic mausoleums along with the catacombs and cemetery chapel for a variety of candle-lit programming and entertainment to experience hidden passages of music, history and time. Stargazing, musical performances and readings will also unfold throughout the night.
This event will take place on October 24th from 8:00 pm to 1:00 am. Pop-up speakeasies will be run by some of New York’s leading bars, including Attaboy, The Drink, Broken Land, Sea Witch, Stop Time and Gold Star. Cocktail attire is encouraged, but remember it will get chilly at night. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes and, of course, bring a flashlight. Tickets can be purchased here.
