From Your Guide: Haunted Manhattan
In the East Village, there’s Frankie, a bartender who’s used to dealing with patrons who just don’t want to heed Last Call. She's pouring round after round of spooky stories, about haunted bars (naturally), speakeasies with both kinds of spirits, and even a diabolical dentist...In the West Village, the Mad Poet will acquaint you with the Bohemian enclave's more macabre denizens, including the dastardly U.S. Vice President and assassin Aaron Burr (sir), a restless spirit yearning for peace, and poet Dylan Thomas, who may still be a barfly at his favorite haunt, over 50 years after his death... And, of course, no one knows more about Greenwich Village than Professor Mortimer, who lectures on the multitude of spirits that inhabit Washington Square, great men of letters like Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe who may still roam the Village, as well as the true stories of "The House of Death."
