New York City: Haunted Greenwich Village Ghost Tour
- Duration options: 1 - 1.5 hours
Travel through the city’s history on New York ghost tours and experience behind-the-scenes spots at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Later, dare yourself to explore one of the most haunted areas of New York: Greenwich Village.
You can expect most tours to last no longer than two hours and to take place early in the evening.
The city has a long and vast history, which makes it one of the best places for you to visit to see spooky sights. The concrete jungle is home to many stories that most people (probably you too) haven’t heard of.
Dare to be scared and experience a new side to New York with exclusive access to haunted places. With every step you take through the city, you’ll walk through New York’s past.
You may have heard about the infamous Triangle Factory Fire, which was a tragic event that led to the death of nearly 150 people. During tours to Greenwich Village, you’ll visit this spot, as well as a haunted restaurant, where ghosts from 200 years ago have been seen consistently since 1910. You'll also stop by The Five Points, which is well-known for hosting New York's most infamous gangs.
Explore the dark history of New York City. Different from tours in other cities, some New York City ghost tours also offer you the chance to see gangster locations while you ghost hunt. You’ll learn how mafia crime scenes worked, as well as how gangsters partied and ran their empires.
You’ll get to enjoy spectacular sights of the city and its important landmarks, such as a visit to St. Patrick’s Basilica. The catacombs of the church have served as the resting place for the deceased for over 200 years. You can imagine that it’s now haunted, so do some digging (although, not literally!) for yourself.
Some tours cover the Greenwich Village area, which many say is the spookiest – see if you agree. Many tours in this area also cover Murder House, which is the site of various murders and, according to a legend, home to 22 spirits.
During ghost tours in this area, you’ll explore 5th Avenue and the Church of the Ascension, allegedly haunted by the artist John Lafarge and more. Hear about the ghost of a former mayor at 12 Gay Street.
