    I have been a New Yorker my entire life, born and raised in Brooklyn. I wanted to know more about my city, especially it’s creepier lore as we move closer to Halloween. I was blown away by the tour guide’s knowledge and how much history is stored in places that I pass everyday. In addition, the guide was very friendly, enthusiastic, and eager to share information. The tour was accessible, informative, and a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend!

    This was a great change of pace for a NY visit and a way to see the city through a unique lens. It was fun for my teenage boys and my mom as well, and I loved being able to walk, poke around streets, and notice interesting details while hearing haunting stories.

    Journey into History - a Must have for Village Fans

    Such a lovely tour. James did a great job. And we had a fantastic full moon - spooky! The tour is not only nice for all Stephen King lovers but also for the ones who are interested in the history of this fantastic place. We learned a lot about the early days of the neighborhood. I liked the tour much more than the standard tour for tourists going from hotspot to hotspot.
