The (Real) Haunted Mansion

October 14, 2015

If you’re looking to inject a few more scares into your Halloween, consider checking out the Merchant’s House Museum, a historical landmark and gorgeous example of 1800’s architecture as well as "Manhattan’s Most Haunted House." Located less than ten minutes from our Lexington Avenue hotel, the museum, which houses a collection of 19th century furniture, garments and more, typically offers monthly candlelit ghost tours, but in the spirit of Halloween, they will be conducting tours on October 23rd, 24th, 28th, 29th and 30th, giving visitors plenty of opportunities to experience the creepy mansion firsthand. So grab a candle and get ready for a ghostly adventure before heading back to your ghost-free room at the Lex.

Address: 29 East 4th Street, New York
