Tourism

The Evergreens periodically offers walking tours of the grounds, weather permitting. The tours are conducted by the knowledgeable and energetic cemetery historian, Donato “Danny” Daddario. Tours typically begin at 11 AM at the Bushwick Ave. gate and last two to three hours. Danny leads the tour through the grounds, highlighting historical points of interest and elaborating on the more unusual and quirky stories behind the occupants of the graves. Danny is always willing to answer questions or take a detour according to his visitors’ requests.
