The Ultimate Village Ghost Tour
All killer, no filler! Join us on this full moon eve, which is also the birthday of Virginia Poe, to see what’s in the air. This 2-hour walking tour presents the very best ghost stories from the East Village and Greenwich Village. The tales on this carefully researched route have been hand-picked by our expert guides to bring you the most fascinating ghostly lore in these historic neighborhoods. Delve into the history behind the hauntings as we situate these stories within the broader narrative of Greenwich Village. Explore some of the parapsychological principles underpinning the ghost stories, from the earliest forays into psychical research and Spiritualism in the 19th century to current theories of paranormal phenomena. Discover how turbulent histories often create enduring local legends.
Bring your skepticism, morbid fascinations, and love of NYC history — and your respect for the unseen world that rests at the edge of our perceived reality.
