On the night of October 24, 2015, Atlas Obscura and Green-Wood Cemetery invited 900 guests Into the Veil for an exploration of the 19th-century cemetery’s expansive grounds. 

Equipped with a map just barely visible in the moonlight, guests made their own way along the winding paths and encountered surprise performances, unusual entertainment and incredible access to rare historic crypts and tombs.

To document the event, Atlas Obscura teamed up with Addison Post and P. Nick Curran of Loroto Productions. The duo captured what Curran called the “strange ambience of the evening” in the enchanting video above.
