Here's your chance to go running in a cemetery
Since Prospect Park will be closed tomorrow—thanks, Obama!—Green-Wood is opening its gates to displaced joggers for one day only
Thu Oct 24 2013
Thanks to President Obama's planned Brooklyn visit, happening tomorrow, there are already changes being implemented to public areas across the borough—the biggest of which is that parts of Prospect Park will be closed from noon through 6pm. While ensuring the president's safety probably ranks quite a bit higher than, say, making sure runners have a place to work out, it's still likely to inconvenience quite a few Brooklynites.
But another Brooklyn institution has offered a solution: Brooklyn Based reports that Green-Wood Cemetery will open its gates to runners tomorrow, allowing them to use the graveyard's paths while Prospect Park is closed. We don't even like running, but are half-considering checking this out—after all, how often do you get the chance to run through a cemetery, in a totally noncreepy way? (It's kind of the perfect lead-up to the weekend before Halloween, no?)
