Out Professionals Anticipates Halloween at the Ghostly Greenwich Village Sites of Murders, Hauntings and Missing Persons

.

On Saturday, October 14, you are invited to join Members and friends of Out Professionals … OP.LYNX, our dynamic women’s network… and some of our newest, up-and-coming young professionals for “Greenwich Village Macabre,” the walking tour and mixer.

Death lies in plain view — if you know where in the Village to look, and what to look for.

  • The 19th century Jewish graveyard
  • Newgate Prison
  • Hangings, and the hangman’s house
  • The murdered architect
  • The haunting artist
  • America’s most famous missing person
  • Edgar Allan Poe’s home, and his inspiration for “The Raven”
  • The day the music died

Afterwards we adjourn to Julius,’ a favorite hangout of writers Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote. One of Manhattan’s oldest bars, this was the site of the 1966 Sip-In, at which activists challenged the New York State Liquor Authority’s regulation prohibiting bars and restaurants from serving homosexuals.

Out Professionals’ private Walking Tour/Mixer Series is designed for us — and you — by Joyce Gold History Tours of New York. Joyce teaches Manhattan history at New York University and the New School.
