The Halloween Season: New York City Haunts
By Carla Blaha
The Halloween season is the perfect time to go on a ghost hunt. Live in or around New York? It is filled with old, historical and haunted places. Think about it. Why not make Halloween your time to go Ghost Busting?
People have been reporting for decades the numerous places that are alleged to be haunted. I could not possible fit them all in one blog but this is a start.
New York City with its’ old world sophistication, glamour, suffragettes and ghosts! The well-known Algonquin Hotel has been reported to be haunted for years. Apparently, it was the social scene for many of NYC finest writers. Many, calling themselves The Round Table, met there for lunch after World War 1. It seems they still do.
The Chelsea Hotel is infamous for its haunting. Many people report seeing a lady crying. She is so much a part of the hotel’s history the guests have named her and peacefully co-exist with her.
The famous Belasco Theatre is a big haunt and one of New York’s oldest theatres. It is said that the builder still walks the theatre and likes to interact with the actors and shake their hands. Also, reported is the blue lady haunting the theatre? It is believed she is the builder’s girlfriend.
The House of Death (hmmmm says it all) on 10th Street is said to be haunted by the 22 people who have died there. Mark Twain is amongst the haunters.
The White Horse Tavern on Hudson Street, built in 1880, was a favorite for many poets. Dylan Thomas was one of those poets. Patrons believe he still sits at his favorite table.
I could go on about all New York’s haunts. These are just a few you might want to check out if in the City.
