One of NYC's best events, Open House NY, is this weekend, and if you're like me, you get shut out of all the ticketed events because your fingers aren't quite fast enough to snag them. Luckily though, Green-Wood Cemetery is open, and you can check out some rarely opened mausoleums. Admission's $20, but it's definitely worth it to see these awesome things.
Among the tombs open for viewing on Saturday is that of theater impresario and tavern keep William Niblo, whose Niblo’s Garden dominated the genteel New York theater scene downtown from 1828-1894. If mausoleums aren't enough for you, on Saturday from 12pm-4pm, Brainery pal Ben Feldman will be presenting a scene from Niblo’s life, for your viewing pleasure!
