Reviews & Ratings
These tours tend to be “dark” in nature. While they are not frightening or explicit, they do deal with death, murder, crime, sex/prostitution and other topics of an adult nature. The tour is recommended for ages 12 and older. Parents are encouraged to use discretion, and are welcome to contact the tour company with any questions prior to booking a tour.
The 90-minute tour covers about one mile of outdoor walking. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and dress for the weather.
About the Ticket Supplier: Boroughs of the Dead Walking ToursEvery borough in New York City has its own special nickname: Brooklyn, for instance, is the Borough of Churches, for its preponderance of houses of worship... and Queens is the called the Borough of the Dead because so much of its surface area is given over to cemeteries. It's a wonderfully creepy sobriquet. But Queens isn't the only borough with dark secrets, hidden histories, ghost stories, or, well... corpses. And so, one can look at the entire city as a place where the dead outnumber the living, where uncanny tales cannot be explained, and where things go bump all night long... these are the Boroughs of the Dead.
Andrea Janes is a writer and tour guide who lives in Brooklyn, New York. Her interest in urban history and terrifying tales led to her career of conducting walking tours of haunted locations in New York City.
She is also the author of BOROUGHS OF THE DEAD: New York City Ghost Stories, the book that inspired this company. The book is a work of fiction, but in the course of her research, she discovered the city was a wealth of ghostly, gory stories, and decided she wanted to share them with the world.
Her short stories have been published in numerous journals, magazines, and e-zines, and have been collected in various anthologies, including Bonded By Blood IV: Scarlet Sunset and Specter Spectacular: Thirteen Ghostly Tales. In addition to ghost stories and New York City history, Andrea loves all things nautical, slapstick comedies, and beer.
