Green-Wood Cemetery Gate, Gay Graves Tour

“Phil—incredibly knowledgeable about both the denizens of Green-Wood and the cemetery’s own lore—knows his stuff. Phil led us through many a winding path and hill. He took us to the graves of Paul Jabara …; Leonard Bernstein …; and Jean-Michel Basquiat. ”
—Joseph H., the Gay Graves Tour, October 2014

“My fiancée and I went on the Gay Graves Tour on 10/21 and we had a great experience. Phil was knowledgeable, hospitable, and passionate about the tour subject. We saw a variety of graves that covered a good mixture of art and history, I walked away feeling like I learned something new. Walking around Greenwood was beautiful, and Phil’s tour inspired me to explore it more. Thanks Phil!”
