Between the leg injury and my moving to another apartment, we've missed a lot of time! But since my move will be complete at the beginning of next week, I can finally schedule our most beloved tour, the Spooks, Scandals, and Scoundrels tour!
Join us on this light-hearted tour that highlights stories of Village hauntings and scandals involving prominent New Yorkers over the past two centuries. Find out about the surprising ghosts that haunt Greenwich Village, plus dastardly acts associated with the jaunty Jimmy Walker, libidinous Stanford White, and infamous Aaron Burr and his duel with the ill-fated Alexander Hamilton. And what supernaturally-inclined tour could fail to include a nod to the macabre Edgar Allan Poe?
PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY ABOUT WHERE TO MEET
Where to meet: Meet outside the restaurant named "North Square" at 103 Waverly Place. Take the R to "8 Street" or A,C,E, B, D, F to "West 4 Street".Check MTA Weekender for any updates before heading out: http://web.mta.info/weekender.html
When to meet: 4:45 for a 5pm start. I will be holding a sign that reads, "Spooks, Scandals, and Scoundrels"
Fee: $20 cash, $15 for seniors 65 + with proof of age; exact change appreciated! Please bring bills, not coins. Sorry, please do not bring dogs or minor children age 17 or below on the tours.
The tour will be approximately 2.5 hours long. For sunny days, be sure to bring a hat and a bottle of water. Check the weather reports on the day of the tour; if there is a chance of rain, please bring your own umbrella. While Friendly Native tours usually do take place on the date and at the time they are scheduled, on occasion they will be postponed in cases of high temperatures or high probability of rain, and an email sent out to that effect to all who have registered for the event.
The nearest restrooms to this location are the restaurants on 8th Street, like Au Bon Pain and Chipotle; and the Starbuck's near the corner of Waverly Place and 6th Avenue. Please be sure to "take care of things" before the start of the tour!
