On a girls' weekend in NYC in May, we signed up for the Edgar Allen Poe and his Ghostly Friends walking tour through Amazon Local for $20 each. We met just outside of Washington Square Park on a very rainy Saturday night. The owner of the business said a few words then introduced us to our guide, Jaime, a very... More

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We toured Greenwich Village and heard ghost tales and lots of history of the area and the buildings. Our guide was funny, smart and very well informed. It was more than worth the money and I suggest it to anyone taking a trip to NYC!

Amata was our tour guide and she was fabulous! She was a great story teller and had some very interesting stories. Also learned a lot of the history behind Greenwich village. Would definitely recommend Edgar Allan Poe and His Ghostly Friends tour.

Our tour guide was obviously new at it and was reading from cards in the most unenthusiastic and monotone voice. The facts were interesting, the ghost stories not very impressive and presented in a "by the way, ghosts have been seen here." type of way

Our tour guide had a thick French accent and it was difficult to understand her. What I did understand was very interesting. I am a history fan so I found that part of the tour fun. It was not scary more of a history lesson.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
