Allison C. Meier moonlights as a tour guide in New York City area cemeteries. (Check out this coverage on Gothamist, the New YorkerDaily Beast, and Time Out New York.) These tours focus on cemeteries as places of history, art, and architecture, as well as memorial sites for remembrance. Themes range from symbolism, to magic and mediums in the 19th century, to forgotten disasters. They’ve included Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, East Village cemeteries, and Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. Sign up on the New York City of the Dead list below to find out about the next happening:
