Boroughs of the Dead Tour Guide Marie Carter is thrilled to present "Ghosts of the Boroughs" on Day of the Dead. In this spooky illustrated lecture you will learn about the haunted mansions of the boroughs, "The House of Death," the small pox hospital, former insane asylums, and grisly murders, among others. And you will learn about the ghosts that haunt your own backyard in Astoria.

About your lecturer:
Marie Carter grew up in Scotland near Edinburgh, a city bubbling with ghost stories. Her father was a bus tour guide in Edinburgh and he would often drive her around town quizzing her on historical facts. She now lives in Astoria, Queens and is a tour guide for Boroughs of the Dead. She created and leads the tour "Haunting Histories and Legends of Astoria." She’s the author of The Trapeze Diaries and the editor Word Jig: New Fiction from Scotland.
