Quiet Ghost Tour of the Financial District

Philip and I took an hour long walking tour with Quiet Events and New York Social Network of the Financial District in mid-October. Unlike other NYC tours, not only was our group mostly comprised of fellow New Yorkers, but we had the additional advantage of bluetooth headsets. These headsets played music throughout the tour (Green channel had disco, while blue had spooky music), and allowed our guide to project not only directions, but historical details to the entire group with ease. We could freely listen and look at the sights, instead of being squished in a tight circle trying to hear each word. Since it was a haunted tour, we not only had the tour at night but learned about the massacres, hauntings, and strange deaths in each of the locations.
