Recommendation by Lemi
Head to Liberty Island to hunt for Captain William Kidd’s stashed treasure! The well-traveled sailor came to New York as a seaman’s apprentice and eventually led many expeditions. Later in his life, he was accused of piracy and hung—but not before he hid his goods in then-called Bedloe Island. When two men tried to dig up the treasure in 1825, they said a furious ghoul awoke and chased them off. They testified that it was the ghost of a crewmate that Kidd ruthlessly buried with the loot. Other retellings claim that it was Kidd’s spirit himself. These days, the Statue of Liberty stands guard; so take a few pictures. Who knows? You may unearth a lead to the captain’s booty!
