Obscura Society NYC: Full Moon Walk at Woodlawn Cemetery

Let the light of the full moon guide you on this nighttime tour of the cemetery's grounds

Bring your flashlight and join us as we explore the stories behind some of Woodlawn Cemetery's most notorious "permanent residents." This inaugural monthly Full Moon tour from the Woodlawn Conservancy is co-presented by Atlas Obscura.

This 19th century Bronx cemetery holds around 1,300 private mausoleums of ornate stained glass by Tiffany and John LaFarge and walls of cut marble on its around 400 acres. This is a rare opportunity to visit the historic cemetery in the twilight hours and see the moon rise above this city of the dead.
