Reasonably priced accommodations in Midtown? Haunted hotels? We thought that these things existed only in the movies! But no, the New York Daily News reports that visitors can experience both—at the same time—at the Wolcott Hotel on West 31st Street.
Fortunately, the historic building, built in 1904, is no Overlook Hotel. The ghost stories are more spooky bedtime story than modern horror movie—two phantom children who like to play at the top of the lobby stairwell and sounds of music that float mysteriously from the staff cafeteria.
