West Village Townhouse Says Boo

New, 5 comments

A Gay Street property that's rumored to be haunted is on the market for $4.2 million. The alleged top hat-and-tails-wearing ghost? Former Mayor Jimmy Walker, who bought the house for his mistress in the 1920s. The most recent inhabitants say they never saw Walker's ghost, but the neighbors are seriously creeped out. "I wouldn't go in there right now," one of them said. "That place would be like moving into The Shining." The listing agents thank you, neighbor. [NYDN]
