Will Green-Wood Cemetery get the go-ahead to turn the magnificent but crumbling Weir Greenhouse into a visitors center? The city Landmarks Preservation Commission will have its say on the matter on Tuesday.

The preservation agency is being asked to approve the demolition of 
two small buildings that were later additions to the historic 1895-vintage Greenwood Heights greenhouse, which is located across Fifth Avenue from the main entrance to the cemetery.

An al fresco florist who was selling wreaths 
Sunday was allowed to open the greenhouse's security gate, which gave us a chance to get a good look at the property's condition. Check out these photos and see for yourself.
