From Chicago to San Francisco, Boston to Seattle, every city in America has more than its fair share of ghostly inhabitants. The authors introduce these phantasmic urban figures, with a chilling collection about historic and modern day ghosts who continue to haunt the buildings, streets, parks, and harbors throughout the cities of America. It’s a travel guide of sorts, with a description of the place, history, and spectral appearances, along with information on ghost tours, people who have glimpsed these ghosts, and more. The very colorful reporting explains how these visitors from beyond have shaped America’s cities and how, even today, they continue to have a profound influence on both the tourist trade and lore.
