It's A Secret... Part 2!

RECAP: Deep in the heart of Gramercy, NYC right on the southern boarder of Gramercy Park there is a giant mansion that overlooks the private park across the street. Founded in 1888 by the famous actor and brother to presidential assassin, Edward Booth opened the doors to The Players on New Years Even 1888 as a private members club for male purveyors of the arts. He bought the house from Valentine G. Hall, had it renovated by Stanford White (Madison Square Garden, Washing Square Park Arches, Penn Station, etc.), and lived in the upstairs apartment...

EDWIN BOOTH DIED IN HIS APARTMENT! And it was his dying wish that the club always remain a club, and his apartment remain untouched. Which is exactly what happened. Members and their guests are able to request the key to The Booth Room, and step inside the musty, untouched chambers of the most famous actor in America. Proceed with caution... this place is haunted AF!
