The world has changed a lot in the past third of a century.

New Yorkers speak not about which borough but about which neighborhood they call home. For many of us, the ideal job would be no more than ten blocks from our home.
And for most of us, the conven- iences of daily life already exist between home and that mythological job.

As told by Seth Kamil, Green-Wood is the perfect site to delve into the history of the people who have made this city great. With its unique architecture and sweeping vistas of Manhattan and New York harbor, Green-Wood is truly special. The driving tour is designed for individual cars. Unfortunately, due to restrictions on city bridges and highways, it cannot be walked or biked. It may seem a bit out of place for a walking tour company to write up a driving tour, but this tour has been carefully designed to lead the driver—and reader—through parts of the city that are less accessible by foot.
We do encourage people to park the car and walk when possible.
