Full description
New York City is known for its hustle and bustle, and has been the living space for many of America’s most historically significant people. With every step you take in this concrete jungle, there’s a good chance you’re coming across something that has a story to it that you’ve never heard before. Throughout this dense city filled with generations of historic events, there’s one area with a real reputation for paranormal activity: Greenwich Village. Come explore a side of Greenwich Village that many people have never known about. The town has been inundated with a history that is fascinating, tragic, and strange. Embark on a life-changing experience and explore a side of New York that few are brave enough to see. Throughout the tour you will visit 9 haunted locations in and around Greenwich Village whilst seeing historical places that are home to some of the strangest tales you’ve ever heard. You'll encounter the Jefferson Market Library, where architectural curiosity catches the eye due to its unique tower. If you look closer however you’ll see a dark past, as this building once served as a prison for Manhattan’s female criminals, and was also the first night court. Following that you will visit the site of the Triangle Factory Fire, a tragic event which led to the death of nearly 150 people. You'll conclude by visiting the Mark Twain House and a haunted restaurant, where ghosts from 200 years ago have been seen consistently since 1910. Whilst at the Mark Twain House you can see if you can catch a glimpse of the famous author walking about in a white suit, which many witnesses claim to have seen.
