Grant for Monument Repair at Green-Wood Cemetery

A bad storm in October 2023 downed trees and a decorative memorial monument at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. The Cemetery was founded in 1838 as part of the rural cemetery movement and is one of Brooklyn’s largest green spaces. The Gothic-style monument was badly damaged in the storm and required numerous repairs. Green-Wood’s in-house conservator made some repairs over the winter and the piece was finally re-erected this June. The Conservancy provided a $10,000 Emergency Preservation Grant to offset the cost of renting the crane that was necessary to re-erect the monument.
