Ghosts of the West Village

7 reviews


MURDER, SCANDAL, SEX...with a macabre bent! Who says ghosts don't exist? Bodies and spirits lurk throughout the West Village leaving their ghostly imprints behind. I will take you around the West Village where we will learn about the life of poet Edgar Allan Poe and all the imprints he and other ghosts left behind! We begin at one of Poe's residences on W3rd St & then we'll lurk in plain sight and visit the underbelly of the West Village visiting unknown historic homes, buildings, and more that reveal secrets of the past. Join me and decide for yourself if ghosts still exist. You will see the West Village in a whole new light….or darkness! Perfect for fans of horror and the paranormal....and anyone who likes their Manhattan history weird and spooked!(Walking distance less than ½ mile; appropriate for adults & kids 10 yrs +) EVEN IF MY CALENDAR IS NOT UPDATED I AM AVAILABLE MOST DAYS JUST SEND REQUEST!!!

I am a native New Yorker, licensed tour guide, actress and naturally curious person! I will give you an off-the beaten path kind of tour where you learn about Manhattan’s history in a non-lecturey way with a spooky ghost twist. The difference between me and a “regular” tour guide is, I have a love affair with the city…this is not just a job for me but my passion! I inject my outgoing personality & zest for the unknown & mysterious. I love sharing the hidden gems I have discovered and enlightening people on the past which I feel makes spending time in Manhattan more enjoyable! I feel as if I’m sharing special “secrets.” My East & West Village tours are just a start…look out for more tours in the future that will include the “naughty” & chic side of Manhattan. Full profile

Wow, what a story teller. Super nice vibe, accommodating and very knowledgeable. Walk was easy, not hard at all. I will do the tour again next time people are in town, great way to start the night.

I went on this tour with two friends and we had a blast. Our tour guide Jocelyn was funny, friendly, and a great story teller. Actually, she was my favorite part of our trip to NYC. I recommend taking as many pictures as possible because you'll definitely see some amazing things! A must see if you go to NYC.

What a fun afternoon! Jocelyn's tour was as informative as it was intriguing. She definitely makes history fun with her tales of the more ghoulish residents of the city. Highly recommended!
