#374 Gotham's Greatest Ghost Stories

What are the greatest ghost stories and haunted legends in New York City history?

Since 2007 -- every October for fourteen years -- the Bowery Boys podcast has shared the city's most notorious and frightening ghost stories and urban legends. Over fifty-five stories and counting -- from malevolent wraiths who walk the avenues to strange spirits forever at home in some of New York's greatest landmarks.

So for this 15th annual Bowery Boys Halloween ghost story podcast, Greg and Tom taking a look back at their favorites (and yours), the tales which have stayed with us -- which have possessed us -- like a persistent phantom who refuses to leave.

Featuring:

-- The Brooklyn poltergeist at the heart of an unsolved 19th century mystery
-- A haunted Hell's Kitchen townhouse tormented by a ravenous spirit
-- An historic tavern with a very famous, very randy ghost
-- A famous apartment building with mysterious people who walk through walls

AND Greg and Tom re-visit and re-tell their favorite ghost story from their very first podcast. Does Olive Thomas still haunt the New Amsterdam Theatre?
