    Ghostly American Revolution and Other Eras Walking Tour

    A walk on the weird side. A supernatural stroll. It's no secret that New York City has its fare share of strange and unusual. What is fascinating is just how many of them don't have to pay rent. Traipse about Manhattan with a local guide for an evocative exposition of its spectral sightings. Visit dark relics of the city's past, as well as the haunts of some of the city's once-great luminaries. Recall the dispossessed (the Algonquin Indians), and the despairing (the African slave trade). Go in search of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Abraham Lincoln, and Captain Kidd. Pay a visit to P.T. Barnum's American Museum, Trinity Churchyard, and City Hall Park for a peek at what lurks in the shadows. You'll also explore the bone-chilling true story behind Edgar Allan Poe's "The Mystery of Marie Roget." Feeling especially gutsy? Take part in an exorcism to lift the diabolical curse placed upon New York City mayors preventing them from furthering their political careers. NYC politics, right?
