With that in mind, you’ve probably opted not to stay over in the NYU dorms. Perhaps you’ve made a reservation at the Algonquin Hotel instead. But if you were hoping to avoid ghosts, you booked the wrong room. The remodeled hotel is now frequented by tourists and business people drawn to its central location in midtown Manhattan, but the hotel just can’t seem to shake its haunted reputation.
It all started in the 1920s, when the Algonquin was the daily meeting spot for the "Vicious Circle,” a group of writers, editors, actors and playwrights also known as the Round Table. For eight years, the group ate lunch together every day to discuss the authors’ projects. Despite the 2004 renovations, ghosts of the “Vicious Circle” are rumored to remain in the Algonquin. If you don’t catch a glimpse of a literary spirit in your bedroom or walking through the bar, you might still see one on the Algonquin Round Table walking tour.
