Though Queens' myriad cemeteries earned it the nickname Borough of the Dead, that description could easily apply to the rest of New York City. And indeed it does on tours led by horror author Andrea Janes, who guides intrepid guests on mile-plus excursions through the city's haunted past. To set spines tingling, Andrea spins historically rich yarns of murderers, Satanists, and ghouls while wandering through Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery or past lower Manhattan's haunted taverns.

Tours exploring the dark side of New York's neighborhoods are just the beginning, though. "Perfect for those with a hankering for the horrendous," according to Time Out New York, Andrea's Edgar Allan Poe-themed Greenwich Village visits stop at places where the poet penned some of his timeless works. She also leads curious guests on crime and vice tours, which include a visit to Five Points and storied accounts of the19th century gangs of New York.

Along the way, groups learn the tales of infamous gangsters including Charlie “Lucky” Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and John "Teflon Don" Gotti, so named for his invention of the nonstick fedora.

Though it's known for landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and Times Square, New York City offers so much more. The "so much more" is what NEWrotic New York City Tours founder Mark Preven wants visitors to experience. Growing up as the son of an airline employee, his passport boasts stamps from all over the world, giving him a greater understanding of how to truly experience a new place and culture as a tourist. With this experience as a world traveler, along with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Big Apple, he puts together unique tours that whisk participants past the requisite attractions and into the cacophonous heart of the real city.

Mark's guided jaunts can take visitors to neighborhoods adorned with graffiti art and Old World religious architecture, or to the water's edges of Roosevelt Island, where guests can see almost all of Midtown Manhattan. One tour traipses to jazz legend Louis Armstrong's home in Queens, while another takes visitors to the American Museum of the Moving Image to learn about the city's history with movie making. Regardless of the tour they choose, participants get to experience the New York that locals live and breathe, making them feel like a native resident, if just for one day.

Yankee Trails World Travel's cozy coaches transport fans to Yankee Stadium for an evening of early-season American League competition against the Minnesota Twins. The Yankees took six games of eight from the Twins in the 2011 season and look to improve upon last year's division-clinching 97-win campaign. Alongside veteran shortstop and five-time World Series champion Derek Jeter, the Yankees 2012 roster brims with breakout talents that include Robinson Canó, the 2011 Home Run Derby champion whose out-of-the-park hits have dramatically increased reports of UFOs hovering above the Bronx.

Slim Chance wants you to know that he's not dead. Rumor had it that the former proprietor of the "Carnevil" was brutally murdered by his staff, but he's back, and he's hosting the Chamber of Horrors NY. Creepy clowns lurk in the shadows, and murderous denizens meander the halls covered in blood and bruises, all either undead or nearly there. Their goal is to terrorize all human guests to the point that they're screaming for their mothers. Nestled inside Matt Guiliano's Play Like a Pro, this haunted house is 11 months in the making by seasoned veterans of the horror industry.
