New York's 5 Most Haunted Places

It is October, and as per usual, the streets of New York are riddled with pop-up costume shops, festive Halloween décor, and well-executed, yet fictitious haunted houses. All in good fun, these aforementioned ornaments of the season may have a few of the braver souls ill appeased by their genuinely harmless nature. That is why we have rounded up a list of New York’s most haunted dwellings—the real ones. Hang on to your hats dare devils, because this is one scary ride.



1) The House of Death (14 W 10th St.)

This beautiful townhouse is surprisingly known as one of the most haunted places in New York, now home to over 20 ghosts. Mark Twain lived here from 1900 to 1901 and claimed that he had experienced supernatural incidents. Throughout the twentieth century, 14 West 10th was the site of several gruesome incidents, including a murder-suicide and the beating death of six-year-old Lisa Steinberg at the hands of her adopted father, prominent attorney Joel Steinberg, in 1987. The specter of Twain himself—white suit and all—has been seen ascending the staircase.

10 Reasons Why October is NYC's Best Month

Oktoberfest

If last winter was any indication of what this year may have in store, we’re going to have to start stitching our proverbial beer sweaters as early as possible. Luckily, we won’t have to make up any excuses for ourselves, as the annual Bavarian beer festival, Oktoberfest, is being celebrated across the city, allowing ale aficionados (if you’re more of a lager person, that’s cool too) to try traditional German brews to their heart’s content! NYC has a varied assortment of biergartens and bierhauses to choose from, so do your research and grab a stein (lederhosen optional).

MARQUEE NEW YORK: The Skrillex Takeover

New York City will never stop pushing boundaries. Amidst its bustling streets within its mere 468.9 geographic square miles, you’ll find the offices for the most prominent companies, renowned restaurants, and notorious nightclubs. It is verifiably the world’s headquarters, which makes it of paramount importance that the city always remain as the leading innovative visionary, keeping its citizens, as well as the world, on its toes.

When news first broke in early August that Skrillex would be playing Marquee New York for one night only, it was met with mixed reactions. While many die-hard fans of the GRAMMY nominated artist hustled and bustled with excitement, scrambling to their computers to purchase a ticket before the show’s inevitable sell-out, there were a few skeptics who questioned the idea, believing the venue to be an inappropriate choice due to size and atmosphere. While reasonable in their conflicted enthusiasm, this time, Skrillex proved the skeptics wrong, as his performance on September 4th at Marquee New York proved to be nothing short of tremendous.

Until Next Summer, We Will Dream of All Day I Dream

At the tail end of spring in NYC, there comes a day each year that serves as a farewell to winter, fueling anticipation of summer with a clear sky, tranquil wind, and pleasant temperature. It comes unannounced, demands no preparation, and yet somehow assumes all our attention. Suddenly, personal and professional woes are placed aside as New Yorkers parade along the sidewalks with happy grins on their typically impassive faces, eager to partake in cocktails and dance to cheery tunes at the nearest outdoor bar.

This is the moment we spend six months praying for, the moment we savor till the very last drop, the moment we relish, celebrate, and dream of.
