Discover the haunting histories of Brooklyn Heights!

Take a stroll among the graceful old homes of one of Brooklyn’s oldest neighborhoods… but don’t let their sedate charms fool you. Nestled within these dwellings are a wealth of gory, ghastly, haunted, and horrific tales. Let Boroughs of the Dead guide you to the frightening sites of dreadful stories that inspire terror in those who pass them after dark.

Highlights of this 90-minute walking tour include:

  • The former site of a “ghost-haunted” fort and the horrific tale of what happened there
  • Mystery Houses that are definitely not what they seem
  • The Sea Captain Ghost of Montague Street
  • The former home of horror master H.P. Lovecraft
  • The wraiths and spirits of a haunted churchyard
  • “The Gate to Hell!”
  • And more….
