Magician #HarryHoudini's childhood home in New York City is being dedicated on #Halloween -
It's on East 79th Street in Manhattan and was originally a boarding house. After the ceremony, New York magicians will conduct a seance at Houdini's apartment building to try to communicate with the legendary escape artist, just as they do every year.
Interestingly, the famed magician spent much of his career proving that mediums were fakes. Houdini died on Halloween in 1926 at the age of 52.Source: MagicTricks.com
