Strange Factor: You don’t have to be dead to ride in a hearse through NYC. Drew Raphael, ex–marketing exec turned tour guide, offers tours of downtown in a 1968 beast on four wheels aptly named Desdemona, which seats seven “living” folks who hear stories of famous dead New Yorkers.

Highlights: Digging up the dark side of NYC history dating back to the 1600s, the tour visits macabre spots including a Spanish-Portuguese Synagogue cemetery as well as places where celebs like Sid Vicious, Heath Ledger, and other notable pop culture icons passed away.
