Meet at the Washington Square Arch in Washington Square Park to begin this spine-chilling 2-hour walking tour through New York City’s scariest streets. Unbeknownst to many visitors, this popular park used to be a community graveyard for “undesirables.” To this day, the remains of more than 20,000 people rest under Washington Square Park. Hangman’s Elm, also known as the Hanging Tree, is an English elm located at the northwest corner of the park. Your guide knows all the scary stories and will share the sinister side of the city as you walk through Greenwich Village.

Onward to the Greenwich Village and West Village streets. See the home where Edgar Allan Poe used to live. He wrote the story “The Cask of Amontillado” and revised and published “The Raven” while living here. The White Horse Tavern is known as the place where writer and poet Dylan Thomas drank heavily, downing 18 shots of scotch. He became ill from that and died a few days later.
