Join us for an enchanting summer evening in our “secret” 19th century garden, followed by a Greenwich Village ghost tour. Arrive at 7 p.m. to sip wine in the twilight in the garden, then, when darkness begins to descends, follow your guide into a world of ghosts and chilling tales as we visit some of the historic neighborhood’s most notoriously haunted locations. Hear stories of the Merchant’s House’s own strange and inexplicable occurrences; find out whether Washington Irving’s specter still visits town; meet the ghostly acquaintances of John Jacob Astor; discover Henry James’s real-life connections to the spirit world; delve into the dark life of Edgar Allan Poe … and more.

  • Walking tour lasts approximately 75 minutes, and covers 1.2 miles. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • $30 per person; includes admission to the garden and walking tour.
