It is probably one of the most picturesque areas in the New York City, but as we all know, there is always a spoon of tar in a barrel of honey. Down the 14 West 10th Street, the House of Death is situated and haunts the citizens, even the most audacious. The point is that this place is a shelter for at least 22 ghosts, including the most famous of Mark Twain.

The House was built in the 1850s and during a long time served as a home for the New York's elite, like Mrs. James Boorman Johnston with her husband, a founding member of the Broadway Underground Railroad and the Metropolitan Underground Railroad. Jan Bryant Bartell with her husband lived here some years later, as well as Joel Steinberg, a real monster accused of manslaughter of his adopted daughter.

Spirits of all the residents have settled there for a little bit longer than their owners, so, obviously, the history of the House of Death explains the name of the place.
