Meander through one of the most haunted neighborhoods in the world in search of ghosts that are sinister and mischievous, famous and obscure. Four hundred years of murder, plague, greed, scorn and poetry in Greenwich Village have conjured ghouls of all sorts of notoriety.
Explore the dark histories of haunted churches, taverns, firehouses, parks and even a subway station.
Warning: this hunt for poltergeists in the shadows of the Village is not appropriate for children.
About Your Guide
Stories of the gruesome, unsolved and occult seem to chase me. In college, I majored in history, with a focus on 19th-century American medicine and disease. Now I write crime and suspense novels. In my research over the years, I uncovered stories about murder, paranormal sightings, witchcraft, cults and spirits. Much of it can be explained away with science but other things remain a mystery.
I will admit that exploring the dark side of life has become a bit of a side passion for me. Hopefully you find it just as interesting. Check out my series of haunted walks in three cities so far: New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle.
