Brooklyn Photos Du Jour: Going To Green-Wood

I imagine a number of you have heard that yesterday Bob Guskind’s funeral came to pass at Green-Wood Cemetery. Not only was this affair was low key (READ: no media presence/circus) but I was genuinely touched by the many wonderful thoughts Bob’s friends, family and professional colleagues offered during the service. Enough so that I felt compelled to offer a few of my own. I had not planned to do this but for reasons that will come to light eventually I had my reasons for doing so.

As is my usual habit I brought along my camera yesterday. Follows are some photographs from my trip to and from Green-Wood Cemetery. I was pretty blown away by some of them. I suspect you will be too. Enjoy!

I would like to thank again all you who have reached out to me over the last week. You might not have heard back from me (my inbox is an e-NIGHTMARE) but your thoughts and condolences were and are very much appreciated. Thanks!

Miss Heather

  2. Green-Wood Cemetery is the most beautiful and peaceful place in Brooklyn (and, the world). The neighborhood around it is pretty cool too. It’s nice that Bob’s life was celebrated in this wonderful place. I can’t think of a better way to go out.

  4. Thanks for the photos. I linked to the post from BViB. I also appreciate hearing that the service was low-key; that’s a relief for those close to him, I’m sure.
