I came across the following short article by Victor Epstein and Christina Boyle entitled ‘Gutted West Village building said to be haunted by restless ghost of Gay St. man is now up for sale’. It dates from 14 October 2009 and appeared in the New York Daily News.
Specific Location: Manhattan
In 1951 Mr Harvey Slatin (an engineer) and his wife Yeffe Kimball (an artist) began renovations on their home in Bank Street, Greenwich Village. The property had been a large nineteen room boarding house which had been run by Mrs Maccario before the Slatin’s purchased it. Without lodgers, Mr and Mrs Slatin decided to make into a single family home again.
