An 1860s history of Brooklyn claimed that activity was recorded during the 1840s construction of the tunnels of the Long Island Railroad causing fear among the workmen and wreaking havoc with the system's operations.

Do you believe in ghosts? 👻 This is 29 East 4th Street, now the Museum and it's long lost almost twin neighbor. 👯 The museum's "spirited" and macabre historical programming in October is NOT to be missed! ⚰️ (photo via )

Love this Wildean DIY walking tour! Also: his mother, Lady Wilde, was a wondrous collector of ghostly folk tales (and found November the most frightening month for reading ghost stories). Here's to all the true originals out there.

I tweet this every October, but if you're in the NYC area and want to have a blast, check out the haunted walking tour. Even if you don't believe in the spooks, it's a fun way to learn about a neighborhood's history and enjoy a brisk fall evening's weather.
