Manhattan beckons people from all over the world, including the dead. Read about the ghosts of struggling artists, musicians, and painters, including Mark Twain, Sarah Bernhardt, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Tennessee Williams, and Edie Sedgwick–who still frequent the Chelsea Hotel. Meet a foul-mouthed old woman haunting First Avenue and the distressed, pacing ghost at Community Synagogue who wrings his hands. Cringe as Peter Stuyvesant’s spirit shushes parishioners at Saint Mark’s Church in the Bowery, his wooden leg reverberating ominous thuds through the halls! Seeghosts in flapper dresses and zoot suits, and listen to ghostly jazz in the West Village. Infamous histories of restless souls of Manhattan await you; be prepared to be scared!
