Description

Meet your guide and group on Manhattan’s 6th Avenue in Greenwich Village. After brief introductions, learn why Greenwich Village has such a rich array of resident ghosts and suspected hauntings. Pay a visit to Poe house, where the famed writer of mystery and the macabre Edgar Allan Poe once lived, and hear tales of his time. Continue on to Washington Square Park, and learn about the park’s “Hanging Tree” and the events that gave it its name en route. Once in the park, view its marble arch and listen to spine-chilling tales of what makes this one of the city’s most haunted public spaces. Next make your way to the Brown Building, site of the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. Victims of this tragedy are said to still wander the building's halls to this day. Stroll up 5th Avenue to see the Church of the Ascension — supposedly haunted by artist John Lafarge — before stopping at 14 West 10th Street, reportedly the most haunted residential address in Manhattan. This house is thought to be home to 22 different spirits and has been the site of several murders. Make your way into the heart of the West Village, passing the former house of American poet Emma Lazarus as well as one of the most beautiful libraries in New York. Your next stop is 12 Gay Street, which is haunted by several spirits — including former New York City Mayor Jimmy Walker. Along the way you’ll pass the Stonewall Inn and Sheridan Square, where the Stonewall Riots of 1969 occurred. Cross Christopher Street for a visit to the historic piano bar known as Marie’s Crisis and Chumley’s, a legendary speakeasy that recently reopened as a restaurant. Your tour commences at the Cherry Lane Theatre, Manhattan's oldest Off-Broadway theater and home to a few actors who never left the stage after death.
