The sensational Doctor Lucky, the World’s Premiere Ph(Double)D, will be your guide as we fill your imaginations with titillating tales from the past. Doctor Lucky’s long and deep resume includes the production of many popular burlesque shows and the instruction of students at prestigious establishments such as NYU, MICA, and CUNY on “The History of American Burlesque.”

As Lucky chronicles the story of burlesque, a dazzling array of in-the-flesh performances will demonstrate a range of burlesque styles from the past and present. You’ll be invited to sip from specialty cocktails prepared by the bar as you’re swept away by revealing historical revelations on the new, state-of-the-art Littlefield stage.

Performers for this event have been curated to include many of the greatest currently operating in the New York scene: Gin Minsky, Corvette Le Face, Ms. Tickle, Perle NoireLil’ Miss Lixx and the Lady Aye.

Historical Lantern-Light Tour of St. Paul’s Chapel & Churchyard

October 27 and 28
6pm, 7pm, and 8pm
St. Paul’s Chapel
Broadway and Fulton Street

Note: Reservations for this event are no longer being accepted.

Come explore the oldest church building in Manhattan and churchyard containing the final resting place of Revolutionary War heroes, early New York citizens, and a few interesting characters. The graves tell the story of the city from colonial times onward.

Highlights include: John Bailey, who made George Washington’s battle sword; Elizabeth Franklin, Ben Franklin’s daughter-in-law; actor George Frederick Cooke (but not his head); a pair of Irish freedom fighters, McNevin and Emmett. You’ll also hear about the New York you no longer see in the churchyard, including the St. Paul’s Chapel Girls’ School and an early firehouse.

St. Paul’s Chapel has recently undergone an extensive restoration, bringing it closer to its original look, and has reopened in time to celebrate its 250th anniversary. This lantern-lit tour of the church and grounds will be followed by refreshments.

RSVP required. Please use the form below. MAX 30 people registered in each time slot per day. You will receive an email confirming your registration within 24 hours. Please arrive fifteen minutes early for your scheduled tour.

Corrupt politicians. Crooked cops. Gangsters so terrifying that they’re known only as “Murder, Incorporated.”

These are the men and women that have made New York City’s underworld the stuff of legend. But there is so much more to this legend than you’ve ever heard. Why is it that New York had such a violent past? What drove these people to a life of crime? This is the story of a broken and corrupt system and the clever individuals smart enough to exploit it.

On this walking tour, we’ll explore Lower Manhattan where we’ll discuss the evolution of orphan street gangs into the mafia, con men and bank robbers so rich they rubbed elbows with the Vanderbilts, gun fights that would make the Wild West blush and the politicians that encouraged it. We’ll visit the old Five Points District, Chinatown, the Bowery and of course the Lower East Side. Let us show you how New York’s crime history began.
