Would you be interested in a tour of places people died?

I guess you would call this grief tourism or dark tourism. Someone recently recommended a tour of New York City: “You ride around in an old hearse and check out sites where famous people have died in Manhattan. It’s really fun.”

Sounded weird so I checked out the website of Deadappletours. I didn’t see anything about John Lennon which surprised me but they promise to tell you the stories of a few other big names: Jean-Michel Basquiat, President James Monroe, “Crazy Joe” Gallo (where he ate his last plate of pasta), and so on.

What do you say? Would you consider touring murder spots and the like in a hearse in NYC?
