Cityscape: Haunted NYC

It’s a summer ritual for a lot of people. Head out into the woods, pitch a tent, and tell ghost stories around a campfire. On this episode of Cityscape, we’re telling New York City ghost stories, albeit without a campfire…

This morning, we’re bringing you ghost stories. A still present artist Marcel Duchamp reportedly haunts a downtown apartment, the Merchant's House Museum experiences its fair share of the paranormal, and Dan Sturges is here to explain paranormal investigations of all sorts.

On this episode of Cityscape, we’re talking to three New Yorkers who think outside the box when it comes to food: a historic gastronomist who samples the eats of the pioneers, an urban forager who sees the park as a produce section, and the author of Urban Appetites: Food and Culture in 19th Century New York.
