Clown spotted walking grounds of historic New York Cemetery

Posted: Updated:

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - First it was the Staten Island Clown. Then, sightings of an equally as creepy clown surfaced in Northampton, England.

Now, someone dressed like a clown has been spotted walking around the grounds of Brooklyn's historic Green-Wood Cemetery.

Videos posted on YouTube shows a person wearing clown makeup and dressed in a traditional clown outfit with red wig and nose, creeping around the grave markers and mausoleums at the cemetery.

It is unclear at this time if this is just another publicity stunt – similar to the Staten Island Clown sightings - or if these sightings are something else.

SouthSlopeNews.com posted several photos of the clown along with a link to a petition citizens drew up calling for cemetery etiquette.

"Green-Wood staff has no information about this individual and has not seen him nor have any lot owners or visitors reported a sighting," cemetery president Richard Moylan said in a statement to the NYDailyNews.com. "When and if he is spotted, he will be immediately escorted from the premises," they continued.
