How 200 Years of Death & Hauntings in Greenwich Village Changed America, 16 October | Event in New York How 200 Years of Death & Hauntings in Greenwich Village Changed America
New York Adventure Club | www.AdventureClub.com

About this Event

A hospital that treated Titanic survivors; a sweatshop fire that shocked the nation; the house of an American Vice President indicted for M**der in two states. While the small Manhattan neighborhood of Greenwich Village is today best known for being one of NYC's liveliest, it's also filled with reminders of its darker history and prominent deaths that rocked the nation, if you know where to look.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore Greenwich Village by foot through the lens of death — from hidden cemeteries and memorials to former dueling grounds, learn how tragic events throughout the neighborhood's past have impacted the life, politics, and even folklore of New York City and beyond throughout the past 200 years.

Led by neighborhood expert and licensed NYC tour guide Kyle Sallee, our unique experience will include:

 

  • A look at Washington Square Park's darker history, from a site of public executions to a neighborhood dueling ground
  • A visit to the former residence-turned-apartment building of Mark Twain, and how it earned the nickname "House of Death" after a highly-publicized M**der trial in 1987
  • A walk past the former Triangle Shirtwaist Company, the site of one of NYC's deadliest fires, and discussion around how it marked a turning point in labor union and worker rights throughout America
  • Stops at abandoned buildings, touching memorials, and forgotten cemeteries

 

Our experience will conclude at White Oak Tavern, which will have food and drinks available for purchase!
