St. Paul’s Chapel is an Episcopal church and, having been built in 1764, is the oldest standing church in Manhattan. It is also the burial site of British actor George Frederick Cooke, who died in 1812 and allegedly donated his head to science. Since his burial in the church cemetery, visitors have reported seeing his ghost appear, searching the grounds endlessly for his missing head. His skull is also alleged to have been used as a prop in a production of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”
