The Ghosts of NOHO Walking Tour
One day only: Saturday October 12, 2019
Ghostly NOHO Walking Tour and Drinks with the Bowery Boys!
Join Bowery Boys Walks tour guide, Carl Raymond for a stroll through NOHO, one of the city’s most fascinating and haunted neighborhoods. Some 19th century residents, it appears, have just never left.
Our 75-minute walk will take guests past some iconic landmarks such as St. Mark’s-in-the-Bowery, Astor Place, the Public Theater, and Colonnade Row. Along the way, Carl will relate stories of restless souls that seem alive (well…) and active in the neighborhood.
Get ready to meet…
- Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant, still knocking about
- August Belmont and his ghostly railway car
- Theater director Joseph Papp (whose presence can still be felt at some performances)
- The tortured souls of those who passed away in the bars and brothels of the Bowery
- …and perhaps the most famous and active ghost of all, the enigmatic Gertrude Tredwell, born in 1840, who seems to still inhabit her family’s old home.
As you walk along, you will hear some background on 19th century New York’s fascination with spiritualism and some typical funeral customs of the period. Carl will even share some of his own first-hand experiences encountering ghosts of this once elegant and wealthy neighborhood!
Bonus reception with the Bowery Boys!
At the end of the tour, Carl will lead you to a secret, yet atmospheric, nearby pub to meet and chat with the Bowery Boys themselves, Greg Young and Tom Meyers.
You’ll enjoy hanging out (and throwing one back!) with the Bowery Boys. The first spirit is on us!
