South Street Seaport Museum announces A Dark Tour of the Wickedest Ward to be presented by William Roka on Friday, October 28, 2016 from 7-8:30pm at the South Street Seaport Museum at 12 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038.
Twenty-four hour dance clubs, hard drinking, and prostitution in a city dealing with grisly murders, piracy, and rampant crime. Welcome to America’s original sin city, 19th-century New York. Join the Seaport Museum’s Historian for this adults-only (21 and over) nighttime tour of 19th-century New York’s most infamous district of vice and depravity: the Fourth Ward. It’s Halloween time in this district of murder, mayhem and misery. Former rat pits, bordellos, and haunted saloons are just a few of the places visited in this walk through of the city’s wickedest ward.
The tour concludes at the famous Paris Cafe, a local tavern once frequented by a President, an inventor, and outlaws. Walking tour ticket holders can take advantage of happy hour drink prices until 10 pm!
Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/dark-tour-of-wickedest-ward/
