Washington Square Park: popular tourist destination, hang-out for college students… burial ground of an estimated 20,000 bodies. Hear the full story from our perturbing Professor, as they guide you through Greenwich Village, introducing you to some of the most notorious haunts in New York. Drop in for a monstrous matinee at the Provincetown Playhouse, then hear some poetry from Poe himself, and maybe grab a drink with Aaron Burr! The Professor knows them all, and will make sure that you learn a lesson or two about the supernatural history of one of the oldest neighborhoods in Manhattan.
The Washington Memorial commemorated the centennial of George Washington’s inauguration. But The Professor will enlighten you as to why construction was delayed…and what lies beneath.
