If navigating and exploring some of Brooklyn’s historic sites is confusing or troublesome for you, then check out what the Green-Wood Historic Fund has up its sleeves: the Green-Wood Discovery app.
On Saturday, July 14, from 1 – 4 p.m., “A Green-Wood Appening” will take place. The event will be the official introduction of the institution’s very own smartphone app, which will allow anyone with an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone to view photos, a walking tour, theme tours, stories, audio, and video – wherever they are.
The goal for Green-Wood is to have the public join in on bringing to life the 174-year-old National Historic Landmark, which is located on 478 acres between Fifth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway, and from 20th to 37th Street. The entrance is on 25th Street and Fifth Avenue.
At 1 p.m., Jeff Richman, Green-Wood’s historian, will explain what the app does, after which you have the option of buying the app for $4.99 adn then testing it out. The discussion will conclude with refreshments and conversation in the Chapel from 3-4 p.m.
