It’s not too late to find something fun and exciting to do in New York City for this Halloween! Even though the spooky holiday falls right in the middle of the week, there are plenty of festivities to take part in. From the annual Greenwich Village Parade to an intimate speakeasy poetry event, here are our Untapped Picks for things to do on Halloween:
12. Trolley Tour of Green-Wood Cemetery
Explore the 478 acres of Green-Wood Cemetery with an expert tour guide while learning fascinating stories of the cemetery’s permanent residents on a Discover Green-Wood Trolley Tour. Along with walking the site of the Battle Of Brooklyn, where George Washing fought with his troops, guests will visit the graves of famous New Yorkers like De Witt Clinton, Leonard Bernstein, Elias Howe, who patented the sewing machine and whose dog Fannie has a longer epitaph than Howe’s wife, Boss Tweed, and ASPCA founder Henry Bergh. You will even get to go into the Green-Wood catacombs, see the Theodore Roosevelt Family Lot and so much more.
Tickets cost $15 for members of Green-Wood and $20 for non-members. Seating is limited and the tours routinely sell out, so it is recommended to reserve tickets in advance.
