White House Tavern
This bar in West Village was very much liked by famous writers and artists including Jack Kerouac, Dylan Thomas, and Allen Ginsberg, to name a few. Locals always tell the visitors how Jack would drink uncontrollably there, and how he was to be driven out of the bar. Moreover, the authorities would write “Go Home Jack” on the walls near the urinals, so that Jack could somehow be persuaded to go home. To this day, one could see fresh signs of “Go Home Jack” being scribbled there. And, there is a consensus that these are written by some ghost.
