The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist.

On October 20, 1953, Senator Joseph McCarthy arrived at the Army Signal Corp labs at Ft. Monmouth, NJ, looking to uncover and destroy a Communist spy ring. Storyteller Robin Bady is not afraid of the bogeyman; she knows who haunts her. It is Senator McCarthy, instigator of the anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950s. To name her fears and claim her truth, Robin reveals the deeply personal story of what happened when her father, who worked at the Ft. Monmouth labs, was accused of being a traitor and Communist spy. And how her family was never the same. Appropriate for adults and youth 12 and older.

The skeletal remains of the High Line’s elevated tracks set the perfect scene for a spooky evening. Join Free Tours by Foot for a journey to the creepier side of New York City’s most unique park. On this tour you’ll hear tales of the strange eccentric who lived below the tracks and saved them from demise, the curse of a West Side Cowboy who fell to his death from the elevated track, and the children who haunt the street formerly known as Death Avenue. If the moon hangs right perhaps you’ll witness the spectacle of a ghostly ship floating down the Hudson River; is it the long forgotten crew of Henry Hudson’s Half-Moon warning sailors not to go to sea? Or is it Captain Kidd protecting the treasure he buried on Liberty Island? Venture at your own risk through the dark side of High Line.
