Full description
Go on an adventure beyond the pale as you discover paranormal phenomena and the terrifying other-worldliness of the “Big Apple” on a walking tour of New York’s ghostlier landmarks. One of the great urban centers of the modern world, New York City also has one of the densest concentrations of paranormal phenomena. Get into the spirit of discovery as you walk through some of the ghostlier neighborhoods. Your guide will share stories of ghost sightings, tell tales of antique scandals, and enlighten you on some of the haunting mysteries of historical luminaries, such as Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, and Washington Irving. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of the ghost of Roosevelt’s dog, ranging the park in search of the President. Dare to sit in the favorite chair of New York’s ghost poet at his favorite Greenwich Village watering hole, and learn why the expression “dead drunk” takes on an entirely different meaning in some of the ghostlier precincts of New York. Decide for yourself if the “City That Never Sleeps” has a spooky reason for its insomnia.

The tour was not scary and the guide did not seem knowledgeable.

Would be leery of booking another tour (with this company) or recommending because of this experience. This is unfortunate as my daughter goes to school there and was looking forward to possibly trying other tours.
