About the Ghosts of Greenwich Village Tours

Greenwich Village is almost universally known for its spooky activity. During the 1700s, nearly 20,000 bodies were buried in a mass grave under Washington Square Park due to an outbreak of yellow fever that hit the whole of New York. Greenwich Village tours will bring you up close to all the reported locations as you hear stories of lost children, celebrity ghosts, and park-dwelling phantoms.

View the famous English elm, Hanging Tree, situated in the northwest corner of Greenwich Village that’s known for its plethora of hangings during the 18th century. Visit the most haunted house in New York, as well as several hotspots that are known for their paranormal activity. For instance, The Cherry Lane Theatre, Washington Arch and Jefferson Market Library, The Murder House, Anne Charlotte Lynch’s House, and more.
