Why see the city from an oversized, touristy double decker when you can see it from a… hearse? Today’s Groupon NY deal is a $22 (regularly $45) two-hour hearse tour of famous Manhattan murders and fatal mishaps. Courtesy of Dead Apple Tours, you’ll travel in a 1960 Cadillac hearse past some of Manhattan’s most morbidly fascinating landmarks. See where James Monroe expired on July 4, 1931, the buildings where Keith Haring and Heath Ledger kicked the bucket and the locations of rocker Sid Vicious’s and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s heroin overdoses. Of course it wouldn’t be New York without a grisly mobster death: the spot of “Crazy Joe” Gallo’s 1972 mob-hit. Best history lesson New York has to offer. The tours run throughout the week, departing from 36th & Madison. The coupon’s good for a year, but you have to buy it by midnight tonight.
