If you're in New York this coming Sunday and looking for a little thrill, you might want to check out Haunted New York, a timely tour sponsored by the 92nd St. Y. The walk, led by urban historian (and horror writer!) Gordon Linzner, will go through the East and West Villages. This being New York, the emphasis is on celebrity ghosts, not just random lame-o spook nobodies. So you're headed for the haunts of Aaron Burr, Mark Twain, Peter Stuyvasant, and other VIPs; given the list, you may want to watch out for ghostly disses.
