Received a press release last month about a new walking tour in New York City that sounds good: Boroughs of the Dead. I’d call it a ghost tour, but from the sounds of it it’s more than that. It sounds a lot like the Quebec Ghost Tour we took, which told of ghosts and hauntings in the historic part of Quebec but also shared some of the city’s more gruesome and unsavory history.
At any rate I figured I’d pass it along. If you go to New York and take this tour, be sure to let Andrea know Haunt Jaunts sent you!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This Halloween, try BOROUGHS OF THE DEAD: MACABRE NEW YORK CITY WALKING TOURS for a totally new horror tour experience. Unlike cheesy “ghost walks” or dry history tours that feel like homework, Boroughs of the Dead combines real facts and solid history with sensation, scandal and an obscenely high body count!
You’ll find ghosts, murderers, thieves, and other lost souls on these dark, twisted, walks through Gotham’s strangest sites, featuring tales of:
- Grave-robbing, disasters and riots in Lower Manhattan
- Crime and murder, 19th century style, in the bloody Five Points
- Ghosts and real-life haunted houses in the East and West Village
- And more!
All tours are led by Andrea Janes, a published horror author who weaves a creepy tale unlike any other guide in the city. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to set up a free press and industry tour for you and your colleagues. Come and see the weird side of NYC for yourself!
