Mark the Season’s Longest Night With a Bonfire and Readings at Green-Wood Cemetery

by

The longest night of the winter is approaching and what better way to spend it than in the quiet, atmospheric surroundings of Green-Wood Cemetery?

The landmarked 478-acre institution will celebrate the winter solstice on Thursday, December 21 with an evening of meditation, art and treats. The evening begins in the Modern Chapel with readings and a guided meditation to “reflect on the passing of one season and beginning of the next,” according to the writeup.

Head outside for a walk through ‘Here Lie the Secrets of the Visitors of Green-Wood,’ an installation by Sophie Calle. The evening ends with a bonfire and refreshments.

The event runs from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for members of Green-Wood Cemetery and Brooklyn Historical Society and $10 for non-members. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
