About a block from the Algonquin, the blazing marquees of Broadway light up the night, competing for attention with the neon-coated buildings of Times Square. On West 49th, the 1922 Ambassador Theater lures sightseers into an auditorium lavished with plaster molding and gilt designs. There, the Tony Award–winning Chicago unfolds with vaudevillian glitz and iconic jazz numbers (tickets included with this Getaways deal). Though many of the city's landmarks are within walking distance of the theater district, a three-hour cruise on a double-decker ferry around Manhattan from Circle-Line Sightseeing provides a more panoramic view of the skyline, skimming past the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty (tickets included with this Getaways deal). When it comes time to explore again on foot, Central Park awaits about a 30-minute walk north of the hotel. There, as autumn turns to winter, the bare tree branches complement the sleek lines of surrounding skyscrapers, and ice-skating rinks reflect glimmering city streetlights and nature's streetlights, the smiles of children.New York Guest's agents live in the city and work in central Manhattan, enabling them to handpick itineraries (such as this one) based on local expertise.

Timothy Haskell is no stranger to scaring folks: The Daily Beast considers his Nightmare series "one of the most frightening haunted-house productions in New York City." But when he teamed up with haunted-house vet Steve Kopelman, Timothy didn't want to keep populating creepy corridors with imaginary ghouls. At Nightmare: Killers2, the duo tap into the true terror inspired by historical and contemporary serial killers to explore the monstrosity of their actions and the celebrity and cultural obsession surrounding them. The New York Times lauds the attraction as “a taut, assured production that knows exactly what it wants to do (scare the hell out of you) and performs its task with ruthless, coldblooded precision."

In the lobby, "The Killer Acts Stage" hosts rotating performers who prime guests with Grand Guignol-style horror entertainment. At the front of the line, personnel can mark any willing visitor’s forehead with an optional scarlet X, which will grant the actors permission to interact with those victims for the next petrifying 20–25 minutes. Inside the haunt, rooms depict scenes based on Aileen Wournos and Charles Manson, with the occasional cameo from pop culture’s most fearsome fictional figures. To heighten heart rates even more, visitors will also have to navigate twists and turns, fog, and uneven footing as they desperately try to avoid becoming each psychopath’s latest victim.
