Poe's Greenwich Village walking tour
Although the mystery and horror pioneer is often associated with Baltimore or Boston, Poe lived out his final years in the Bronx (his former residence is now a museum) and spent a significant chunk of the 1840s wandering the gaslit streets of Greenwich Village. On this walking tour—hosted by creepy operator Boroughs of the Dead—you’ll visit three of his former residences, discussing works he wrote and edited at each, as well as an abandoned hospital, former burial grounds and other hair-raising sites. Perfect for those with a hankering for the horrendous, the event marks the anniversary of the writer’s death (Monday 7) with special emphasis on the curious circumstances surrounding his demise. Meet at 85 W 3rd St between Sullivan and Thompson Sts
