Bizarre Brooklyn: Stories of the Tragic, Macabre and Ghostly, An Interview w/ author Allison Chase

Every day, millions of New Yorkers walk past the ghosts of Brooklyn’s history in broad daylight. Park-goers stroll by the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument in Fort Greene Park, yet few read the historic marker, revealing that it is actually a grave holding up to fifteen thousand bodies. The iconic Park Slope Armory is simply a beautiful landmark to most onlookers, but its secrets include numerous haunted halls and a hidden tunnel to Prospect Park buried underneath. Two planes crashed into each other over the skies of Brooklyn in 1960, killing more than one hundred and destroying an entire city block, yet an eleven-year-old known as the “Boy Who Fell from the Sky” miraculously walked away as the sole survivor. Author Allison Huntington Chase reveals the hidden, macabre and bizarre of Brooklyn’s past.

Allison Huntington Chase grew up in Hartford, Connecticut, and has a degree in screenplay writing from the School of Visual Arts. She is the CEO of Madame Morbid Trolley Tours, which focuses on dark history and ghosts of Brooklyn. She also has her certificate on Sommelier Studies from the ICC. She enjoys history, cooking, animals, traveling and pop culture.

More about Crime Capsule

The smoking gun. The bloody knife. The chase, the catch, the courthouse doors. On the Crime Capsule podcast, nothing fascinates us more than the stories of true crime in American history: the deeds and misdeeds that have shocked our citizens and, in some cases, shaped our nation. Traveling coast to coast, our mission is to dig up these stories from America’s past and to bring them to America’s present. To shine a light on the darkness that at times shadows our history. And hopefully, to let that light illuminate the concept of justice more brightly.

Join writer and host Benjamin Morris for exclusive, in-depth interviews with authors from Arcadia Publishing, the largest publisher of local nonfiction in the country. From DNA testing to the Dixie Mafia, our guests have intimate knowledge of the cases they’ve studied. They’re the historians who chronicled them. The reporters who broke them. And sometimes, the cops who cracked them.

Each week, Crime Capsule brings you the authors who have journeyed deep inside the shadows of American history. And we’d love for you to join the conversation. Learn more at evergreenpodcasts.com. Crime Capsule: history so interesting it’s criminal.
