Today we brought the students on a tour around lower Manhattan to explore 13 haunted buildings that are held in Greenwich Village. Our tour guide brought them to the home of Edgar Allen Poe and Emma Lazarus, the writer of “The New Colossus” that is inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. The renovated Triangle Shirtwaist factory was another stop on the trip that allowed them to see how events and time has changed a historic building.
During the tour, they walked through the neighborhood that houses New York University until they concluded in Washington Square Park. A special thanks to Robert from Haunted Manhattan for being the tour guide and presenting the ghost stories in a real and exciting way to our students!
