11. There Was a Speakeasy in the NYU Brittany Hall Dorms in Greenwich Village


In 1929, during Prohibition, there was a luxury hotel called the Brittany Hotel that hosted a speakeasy in the penthouse. Though NYU’s Brittany Hall, as it is now known, has since been renovated, there are still signs of the bygone era in the building, like false walls that can be seen behind empty bookshelves. The building is also reportedly haunted by the ghost of a young girl named Molly, who fell down the elevator shaft during the building’s construction.
