Green-Wood Cemetery’s purchase of the McGovern Florist building just hit public records, and the deed shows that the cemetery paid $1,625,000 for the structure. The landmark building, on the corner of 25th Street and 5th Avenue, was asking $775,000, or $1,500,000 along with an adjacent wood-frame house. Both properties went into contract last April. The cemetery plans to renovate the building into a visitors center and museum in hopes to lure more tourists to Green-Wood. No plans or renderings have been released for the building yet.
