According to an announcement sent out by the Historic Districts Council, the City Council has approved Green-Wood Cemetery’s purchase of the landmark McGovern-Weir Florist. A “public approval was necessary because of a state law involving cemetery usage,” according to HDC. Green-Wood hopes to close on the building soon. This summer the Times revealed Green-Wood wanted the building for a visitors’ center and museum, but the sale depended on the results of an engineering study. The late 19th century building is in a state of advanced deterioration. Excellent to hear it will be fixed up soon.
