Spring is in the air, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the beauty of the season! Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn is known as the final resting place for the famous and influential, but it’s also home to an extensive number of cherry trees (172, to be exact).

At Green-Wood’s Hanami Festival, guests can stroll winding paths to admire the flowering trees as they come into full bloom.
