Ghosts of New York : Ghosts of New York is the first book in a fascinating new series exploring the spirits that haunt America's cities, introducing readers to otherworldly New Yorkers from as far back as pre-Revolutionary times. Step into the shadow-world of ghostly spirits and apparitions who, for one reason or another, chose to stay on in New York after their contemporaries had departed for the afterlife. Visit the White Horse Tavern, where Welsh poet Dylan Thomas died after drinking 18 straight whiskies, but still likes to hover around his favorite table. And why does a young Ziegfeld Follies chorus girl still haunt the New Amsterdam Theatre clutching a blue glass bottle? Read their eerie stories and be awed by many other inexplicable hauntings in this ghostly-guided tour. 20 haunted tales are offered with 70 photographs in suitably spooky sepia tones.
