Learn about the men and women who made up a swath of 8th Avenue during the late 1800’s this Sunday (1pm) at Green-Wood Cemetery.
Lucas Rubin, author of Brooklyn’s Sportsmen’s Row: Politics, Society, and the Sporting Life on Northern Eighth Avenue, will add a “final chapter to his book, focusing on how, just as the lives of these early Brooklyn residents came together in fascinating ways, death brought many together again – right here in Green-Wood.”
This event has two parts, with separate tickets for each part:
The free book talk/presentation in the historic Green-Wood chapel, ending with a book signing.
A guided trolley tour immediately following the talk.
Tickets for the trolley tour are $10 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and $15 for non-members.
Seating is limited for both the talk and the trolley tour, and reservations are recommended.
