Visit the Most Haunted Places in New York

New York City is known for its crushing hustle and bustle, and many of America’s most historically significant people lived their lives layered on top of one another for hundreds of years.

The city has such a rich and ruthless history that it is one of the best places to visit when you seek truly spook tales.

Mark Twain House

With a name like “House of Death,” you’re bound to expect a scary backstory. From the surface, it looks like any other brownstone in a nice area of the city. However, numerous twister tales give this home an infamously haunted reputation. Samuel Clemens, also known as the famed journalist and literary legend Mark Twain, is perhaps the home’s most famous tenant. He claimed to have seen a piece of wood floating in the air on its own. He shot the piece of wood only to see it fall in a pool of blood. Creepy, to say the least.


Emma Lazarus House

The legend goes that after Emma Lazarus passed away, her spirits stayed behind at her residence. Today, the Emma Lazarus house is one of the hottest haunted destinations in New York City. Emma was a well-renowned poet mentored by the late Ralph Waldo Emerson. People who have visited the residence claim to have heard strange noises and felt an abnormal presence in some rooms. If you’re looking for a spooky thrill right in the center of NYC, don’t miss out on this attraction.

One if By Land, Two if By Sea

The “One if By Land, Two if By Sea” restaurant sits in the heart of the West Village. Behind its beautiful decor and amazing food hides a rather peculiar history. The restaurant operates today inside a carriage house built in 1767. At one time after that, it was a home, and the building was converted into a brothel and then a pub. Since the late 1700s, the area has been rumored to be haunted by Aaron Burr, Vice President from 1801 to 1804. Since 1910, the restaurant has had a steady stream of sightings, and diners have often had very unusual experiences.

It’s easy to act as if ghosts don’t walk among us, but what happens when you enter into the heart of darkness where they roam freely? When you see something out of the corner of your eye, will you try and dismiss it as just your imagination or run away in fear? New York is rife with hauntings, but you won’t find many places as haunted as Greenwich Village. From the very first location on the tour, you can bet that every step you take will lead you to another place that has been known for strange sightings and paranormal activity.

Perhaps you are hoping to catch a glimpse of a man walking through a door or hear the haunted voice of someone from the distant past. Maybe you just want to experience something paranormal just to prove to yourself that spirits really do walk among us.

If it has always been your desire to experience activity, then Greenwich Village and it’s many ghosts are somewhere the chances of having that experience rise exponentially.

You could be among them and finally satisfy that itch you’ve always had of experiencing something truly otherworldly. Just be careful, you may get more than you bargained for.
