    What to Expect
    Meet for this 1.5-hour ghost walking tour of New York in the East Village of Manhattan a little before 8pm. Your tour group sets out at 8pm sharp, so you won’t want to be late. If you truly believe in ghosts or just love to know an area’s exciting past, this tour’s for you.

    During the evening, your guide takes you around the city to spots known for their ghostly activity, and tells you stories and folklore about the area. Learn about Peter Stuyvesant, who served as the last Dutch director-general of the colony before it was renamed New York. Other famous people’s history you’ll hear about include Edgar Allan Poe, August Belmont, Joe Papp, Washington Irving, Samuel Clemens, and Harry Houdini. Along the way, you might even see a ghost or two.

    After about a mile-long walk, your tour ends at Il Buco Restaurant, 47 Bond Street.
