New York City is Haunted

Get the New York ghost experience with our licensed guides.

“For every New York neighborhood you care to explore, there are ghosts and chilling ghost stories. Go to the East Village and search for the ghosts of Edgar Allan Poe and Harry Houdini. Ghost hunt in Greenwich Village with the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt. Head to Brooklyn Heights in search of the ghosts of Walt Whitman and Jackie Robinson or wander Lower Manhattan looking for the spirits of Captain Kidd and Alexander Hamilton. New York may, indeed, be the city that never sleeps; and after one of these terrifying tours, you may understand why it’s one of the top 10 ghost tours in the U.S.” We do an Edgar Allan Poe tour that is like no other in the country.

Visit America’s most haunted city, the Big Apple looking for the New York of myth, movies and books. Let us see if we can scare you with stories of ghosts, antique sites, ghostly sightings, scandalous tales, haunted places, mysterious sightings of apparitions, strange and unusual tales of centuries past, legendary stories, folk lore and ghostly experiences stranger than reality, and supernatural intrigues of Manhattan. Listen to accounts of our guides and participants on tours have had on our saunters. Our tales and legends are blended with bits of human interest and historical fact also making them educational for all ages

Haunted and mysterious New York dedicates itself to exploring paranormal phenomena, occult manifestations, and ghostly happenings. We want to give you an experience that has no equal. We want to challenge your mental facilities and powers of observation. If you dare, participate in our trek into the unknown, share your ghostly experiences with others, and ask yourself: Do you believe what you see, hear, smell, and touch?

Each tour is 90 minutes long, total walking distance is less than a mile, covered at a very leisurely pace so that you can enjoy the mysterious atmosphere and haunted locations. We have many different tours to choose from. We conduct our tours with great respect for the, “out of body people”. After all they are no different from us – they are free of the physical world. We are positive that our tours will enchant, entertain, inform, and scare you.

We can also provide storytelling at your event. We would love to share our experiences/ history/ etc at your gatherings. Contact us for more information.

Plan your next party with us and bring thrills and chills to your group’s festivities! Ghosts of New York offers child-friendly presentations appropriate for all ages. We offer several exciting options to amaze and entertain children and adults alike. One of our ghost guides, adorned in a fantastic-costume, will appear to regal everyone in your group with real history and true ghost stories from all across the local New York area.


The Ghosts of New York cannot be held responsible for any haunting, supernatural event, soul-possession or poltergeist activity endured before, during or after participation on the tour.

Our Ghostly Board of Advisors

Unique to the business, we have a ghostly board of advisors that we are in contact through séances. The following ghosts have agreed to serve on our advisory board so that we may bring you the best in haunting:

Peter Stuyvesant, our oldest ghost whose name we know, in life the last Dutch ruler of the colony of New Netherland and its capital, New Amsterdam;

Edgar Allan Poe, our most popular ghost, recorded simultaneously in at least half a dozen places in NYC alone, the author of “The Raven”;

Washington Irving, our literary ghost, the father of both the American and the English ghost story, the author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hallow”;

Henry M. Flagler, our business ghost, the developer of Florida, who is a snowbird from our Palm Beach Ghost Walk;

And Sarah Winchester, our guilt-ridden ghost, widow of the rifle-manufacturer, from our New Haven Ghost Walk.
