New Luxury Bus Tour Visits Manhattan's Most Haunted Places

Just in time for Hallowe'en, New York City Adventure Tours introduces a guided bus tour of the 25 most haunted places in Manhattan, including the Merchant's House, "Manhattan's Most Haunted House," according to The New York Times.

Led by NYC licensed tour guide Andy Sydor, the comfortable 2-hour ride (in a luxurious 14-passenger Mercedes Sprinter) stops at the house where Edgar Allen Poe penned some of his most chilling tales; a pair of firehouses haunted by tragic love affairs; the Dakota Building of John Lennon, Boris Karloff, and Rosemary's Baby fame; McSorley's Old Ale House, where Harry Houdini still makes occasional appearances; and much more!

The tour winds up with a private visit inside the Merchant's House Museum, where paranormal activity has been well documented for more than 75 years. Each guest will be provided with ghost hunting equipment, an EMF detector and temperature gauge. Photography (without flash) and digital video is welcome.

About the Merchant's House Museum
Celebrating Our 75th Year as a Museum (1936-2011)
The Merchant's House Museum is New York City's only family home preserved intact - inside and out - from the mid-19th century. Home to a prosperous merchant-class family and their staff of four Irish servants for almost 100 years, it is complete with the family's original furnishings and personal possessions, offering a rare and intimate glimpse of domestic life from 1835-1865.
