It’s the event that officially lets us know that fall is here. We wait for it all year and enjoy the experience so much that we don’t even mind that summer is over. Yes, that good! And, that scary! Halloween is one of the best times in New York – for many reasons. Our favorite reason is because Blood Manor is back! Blood Manor is New York City’s Premier Haunted Attraction! It’s more than a haunted house and the experience captured can only be had within these walls. Just ask Jimmy Fallon and Kevin Hart.
This year, we were particularly excited to experience Blood Manor as they moved locations. From Hudson Square to TriBeCa; even the ghouls, ghosts and zombies are on to the trendy neighborhood! The new location was built in 1853 has been featured as one of NYC’s haunts with Civil War Soldiers ghost sightings who frequent there. You’ll realize how spooky this place is as soon as you roll up. The building also is the former home of one of the earliest photographers in American history Matthew Brady. Known most prominently for his legendary Civil War battlefield photos Matthew’s were displayed to create awareness of Americans killing Americans. The thankful soldiers to Brady have been seen on many occasions on site at the 359 Broadway building.
Brady captured one of the most important photos that impact all of us. He photographed multiple well-known people including Abraham Lincoln. He shot the photo of Lincoln that is displayed on the $5 bill which was taken days before Abe’s assassination. For fifteen successful seasons, Blood Manor has made facing your darkest fears part of NYC’S Halloween season and will be all more real at this new location.
We didn’t think Jimmy Lorenzo and his team could out do themselves, but they have added floors, rooms and lights that will dig deep into your soul. That’s just a taste of the dangers awaiting you on your welcoming visit to Blood Manor. Mike Rodriguez and Jimmy Lorenzo continue the tradition in their as their creative juices and desires for all things sinister and dead come out in this production.
If you can’t make it downtown, visit their Long Island location which is now in their second year – at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike, Uniondale, NY.
As they say at the Manor, GO AHEAD SCREAM…IT WON’T MATTER!
