The Dark Side of Downtown Albany Walking Tour

In honor of Halloween, join Historic Albany Foundation, Discover Albany and fellow members of the CDCSS for a special, sinister tour exploring the Dark Side of downtown Albany. This guided tour will delve into the stories behind the buildings you see every day in the downtown area of Albany, peeling back the layers of history to discover tales of true crime, spooky stories, and murderous mysteries.

Hear about an elevator accident, a murder at the luxurious Ten Eyck Hotel, attractions at a long-gone curiosity museum, and much more.

Meeting point - Outside McGeary's, 4 Clinton Square, Albany, NY 12207.

There will be a stop at a local pub midway through the route for a tipple.

Net proceeds will go to benefit the Historic Albany Foundation. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes.

Please reserve early - only 10 spaces are reserved for CDCSS!

PLEASE NOTE: Food and all drink is not included in the registration fee for this event, but may be purchased at your own expense. 


Only $10 for CDCSS members and guests. Register and pay online here.  Hurry, limited spaces available! Food & beverage purchases are each individual’s responsibility.
