LOTS of contest stories about New Orleans! Are there OTHER scary cities???

your humble host

I’m not saying it hurts or helps to set your scary story in New Orleans…

(Okay, maybe it helps; I like ‘Nawlins. The city embraces its dark side. My scary story takes place there.)

It’s fun to see so many stories set in New Orleans; at least four so far, and I have a LOT of stories to read still! I guess the Big Easy has a reputation.

Are there OTHER cities that have a reputation for being scary?

What are some? List them below!

              1. The underground vaults themselves were a breeding pit for the city’s least pleasant individuals. Beneath the heart of the city, they were a rank den for thieves, black-market peddlers, the homeless and prostitutes. But they were also a system used to transport corpses so they could be illegally sold to medical schools and anyone else that might’ve been interested. A host of spirits allegedly haunt the vaults. Among them the spirit of a young boy, a dog, a shoemaker and probably the most famous of them; a very malevolent apparition of a man with a top hat named Mr. Boots.

                Fascinating stuff really! Those vaults were truly scary after dark, hell, even during daylight they were unnerving.

  1. I suppose, Dan, it really depends what you find scary. New Orleans has a reputation for voodooism which is very creepy. England and Scotland are packed full of ghosts, it is really unbelievable how many ghost stories there are. New York has a reputation for serial killers and South Africa has a reputation for murderers in all shapes and sizes. South America is know for drug lords and Italy for the mafia. Hmmm! I should thank you for all these great ideas.

    1. You’re welcome!

      That’s true about England and Scotland. Lots of ghost stories there. When I visited Lucy over the summer last year, it seemed like there was a ghost story for every second or third building! Mostly pubs, though. Maybe that had something to do with her.
