As rich as Brooklyn’s Green-Wood is this 400-section of the land burial ground, the most renowned resting place in the Bronx. Dating from the Civil War (1863), it guarantees more huge names than Green-Wood – and truly, it is a challenge – among its 300,000 or more tombstones, including Herman Melville and jazz greats, for example, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington. Approach at the front for a photograph pass in the event that you need to snap pictures.
