On this adults-only (18 and older) evening tour you will hear the stories of sordid murders, dangerous criminals, and infamous houses of ill repute as you take a walk through the Wickedest Ward. Especially for Halloween, you will also be taken inside Schermerhorn Row, which contains the remains of an old hotel where several guests met grisly ends.
