Prudence Holmes is an awesome tour guide and did a great job. I truly enjoyed every minute of her tour. She has lived in the city for 30+ years, so she is very knowledgeable and fun. A truly great story teller, Prudence is definitely recommended. You won't be sorry you took your tour with her!

The Ghosts of New York tour provided an interesting tour of historical places which are haunted by various spirits. The tour guide provided an excellent presentation on the history of the area and the spirits haunting them.

We all enjoyed a unique, artistic and history filled tour of Greenwich Village. The tour focused on historic places, famous writers and focused on Edgar Allen Poe. The tour guide showed me a place that I never saw before so I thought that was a treat. I have been to Greenwich Village before so I know the area.

A fun walk through time, full of historical and architectural anecdotes. Not the tour for those who want things to jump out and yell 'Boo!' (although I'm sure local residents would oblige) but a thoughtful, funny, and darkly creepy look at a neighborhoods that have seen their share of sadness and terror. The best way to keep the dead with... More

We decided to do this last minute and it turned out to be a great idea! Prudence Wright was so funny and kind. She really kept the tour upbeat. It was also a wonderful walk around the city as well.

Wife and I had a ghost tour with Russell of the Upper West Side. We covered from about 66th to 73rd Street, from CPW to Amsterdam. Wasn't too strenuous of a walk, good pace and a nice variety of stories, mixing in rumored hauntings with reported deaths, murders, etc. It was also a very nice orientation tour of the UWS... More

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

The tour was the Edgar Allen Poe tour in the West Village and it was so much fun and very interesting. We learned quite a bit from the tour. Our guide was Russell and he was funny and personable and just all around friendly not to mention very knowledgeable. He did a great job and was full of great information.... More

Recently did the Greenwich Village Ghost tour while in the city for my Mom's birthday. Ghost tours can be either hit or miss, but this one was a hit. We had a great tour guide who took us around Washington Square Park and the NYU campus. While the stories of the ghost sightings were interesting it was the history of... 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!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
