Horror In New York. Ten Most Famous Ghosts Of NYC

Green-Wood Cemetery

Horror in New York and haunted places. The afterlife is not always discrete, there are strange forces and ghosts all around the city.

According to the book Haunted Places: The National Directory, four ghosts live in St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery (131 E. 10th St., 212-674-6377, East Village, Manhattan). One of them has a wooden leg and walks with a cane. It seems he is a farmer called Stuyvesant, who died in 1672. He was buried in a vault, permanently sealed in 1953 to avoid problems, because church attendants have reported hearing the tapping of his peg leg.

And how about the self-proclaimed Bishop of Broadway, David Belasco, who died in 1931? It seems that he lives in Belasco Theatre (111 W. 44th St., 212-239-6200, Midtown West, Manhattan). Actors, stagehands and doormen have reported spotting Belasco in the balcony during shows. He usually appears with a woman in blue at his side.

Very famous is also Ms. Gallus Mag ghost. He lives at Bridge Café, closed since 2012 due to Sandy damage (279 Water St., 212-227-3344, Financial District, Manhattan). Since opening in 1794, the establishment served as brothel, pirate bar, packing store, Hungarian restaurant… But it always had a ‘peculiar’ decoration. The shelves hold pickling jars containing body parts of Gallus, punished for their patrons. Thus, numerous testimonies say that his shouts and blows are still heard in nearby offices.

Poet Dylan Thomas and Nancy Spungen, Sid Vicious’ girlfriend, are rumored to be spending the afterlife at the Chelsea Hotel, where both met their death.

John Lennon is said to haunt the Dakota, where he was murdered.

Washington Square Park Greenwich Village, Manhattan, is another NYC haunted place. It’s rumored that if you walk by the park late at night, you’ll see ghosts hanging from trees and especially, around the arch.

And how about you? Have you ever seen a ghost in New York City? Tell us your experience.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
