The Theater Company (TTC) is kicking off its new season with a spirited evening of ghosts and spooky mayhem this Halloween with “Scary Stories on the Waterfront.” In conjunction with the Hoboken Historical Museum, TTC will be presenting candlelight ghost stories outside of Sybil’s Cave (Frank Sinatra Drive, Hoboken).

Producing Artistic Director David Zimmerman notes, “The stories will be based on various ghost stories from different cities, but we are taking special care to include Sybil’s Cave and some of the stories that surround that location.” Sybil’s Cave, which was reopened on October 22, 2008, was once a well-known tourist spot. In the mid-19th century, New Yorkers would come to Hoboken to drink water from the cave, which was believed to have therapeutic properties. The cave is said to be the inspiration for Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” based on the real unsolved murder of Mary Rogers. So, peer into the past as you look into the cave and let your imagination run wild with the stories that still haunt there!

Event Details:

“Scary Stories on the Waterfront”
October 31, 2009 – Two Performances: 6pm & 7:30pm Tickets are $13 and are available in advance at the Hoboken Historical Museum or at the gate at Sybil’s Cave on Halloween evening (cash or check only).

When I was growing up it was called ‘deadmans cave’ and it was hole in the side of a hill and the entrance was filled with about $10 worth of cement– THAT’S IT.

Dead Man’s Cave was just under the Stevens Cannon which you had to climb in from through the hole in the cement. As teens we used to climb the trails from 10th Street Park to the cave and then drink beer and smoke weed! After we would stumble out we would cut down the 100 steps and hang on the piers.

The photo effects make this travesty look like part of a cute model train layout.

the only scary thing is the amount of money spent on that hole in the ground.
