Green-Wood Cemetery: Entrance
The Gothic Revival main entrance gate building was designed by Richard M. Upjohn and built in 1861 with Bellville brownstone. The gateways feature sculptured groups designed by John M. Moffitt that depict biblical scenes. The center spire is home to a group of monk parakeets that are descended from South American birds that escaped their cages in the 1960s from Idlewild Airport (now JFK) a few miles to the southeast.
