I went to pay tribute to Basquiat, and stayed for about 2 hours. You can get a free map at the entrance. There's a corner that has a small lake/pond too.

You'd never know you were in New York City. The place is deserted. Except for the dead: New Yorkers, from another time and place, the ones who really built the City, surround you. Green Wood is the Père Lachaise of the New World and you...More
