Happy Halloween || Green-wood Cemetery {SIL Cardi Part 2}

Since we have only lived in this area now for a little over a year, I'm still in the discovery phase... actually not sure when I won't be a tourist here!  There are endless things right up my ally to see and do in NYC, and pieces of history that I am constantly stumbling upon.  With each new season, I make sure I visit somewhere new!  You might remember my posts from last October highlighting the historic Ellis Island abandoned train station & the ruins of the Smallpox Hospital on Roosevelt Island.  This year, we set out to experience Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, a shockingly stunning setting founded in 1838.  There are over 5,000 Civil War veterans buried here, as well as figures of history like Leonard Bernstein, Frank Morgan & William Poole.  

It was the coldest day we have had so far this Fall, and the brisk wind created quite the invigorating autumn stroll around this hauntingly peaceful graveyard.  As it encompasses 478 acres, we didn't even scratch the surface of seeing it all yet!  After our visit, we shared a giant freshly-baked cinnamon roll & coffee outside in the sun - it was a perfect East Coat-style October date!  For this crisp & cool weather, surrounded by crunchy, colorful leaves, I wore some seriously cozy vintage items from Lady Jane Vintage: wool coat, faux fur hat, & suede gloves.  More accessories also from LJV:
