Oct. 26-29. Candlelight Ghost Tours of Manhattan’s Most Haunted House
Want to experience real ghosts on Halloween? Well head to the Merchant House on Fourth Street in NYC. This brick and marble row house was built in 1832. Three years later, it was purchased by a prosperous hardware merchant, Seabury Tredwell, and the Tredwell family continued to live in the house for almost 100 years. Today, miraculously, that merchant’s house still stands. It has been open to the public as a museum since 1936. And it has ghosts.
Seven family members died in the house; their funerals were held in the front parlor hung with black crepe. We invite you to venture into the dark and ghostly shadows of history by flickering candlelight to hear chilling tales of restless phantoms, voices calling into the night, and otherworldly occurrences from the people who actually experienced them. Tickets are $40.
Oct. 26-29. Night of 1,000 Jack O’Lanterns
Take the ferry to Governor’s Island for a spectacular Jack O’Lantern display. You’ll see more than 1,000 illuminated jack o’lanterns carved by artists from around the tri-state area and staged along a festive, paved, tree-lined pathway among the backdrop of centuries old buildings in the heart of the Big Pumpkin, er, Big Apple, that is! Buy tickets in advance.

They will tear through ALL the decades with The Girls—right up to the present—vocally channeling the Chordettes, the Angels, the Dixie Cups, Wilson Phillips, the Harlettes, the Roches, Destiny’s Child, and so many more. Full of laughs and surprises, this tender and utterly unique holiday evening of beloved music is one that you won’t want to miss! Tickets are just $20 + a 2-drink minimum.
Listen to their awesome harmonies!
