Haunted Astor Library in Manhattan


Haunted Manhattan

Astor Library Building:
A former public library building and current home to the Public Theater, this space reportedly houses some of the city’s most creative spooks. The spot is said to be haunted by the likes of New York literary giant Washington Irving, as well as Joseph Papp, the late founder of the Public, who was responsible for persuading the city to landmark the architectural gem in 1965. Papp is, according to Schoenberg, a protective paranormal presence. “Usually, you have ghosts that are stuck because they have unhappy experiences,” he says. “Joe Papp had a happy life, and wanted to give back in the afterlife.”
