A Beautiful Way to Go commemorated the 175th anniversary of Green-Wood Cemetery, a bucolic landscape in Brooklyn, New York. Green-Wood's lush, rolling hills and pastoral countryside served as a respite from the bustle of metropolitan life, and would later inspire the design of Central Park, Prospect Park, and the first suburb, Llewelyn Park in New Jersey.
