In 1903, hundreds of people gathered at the Iroquois Theater to watch a play. Flames began to appear but people thought it was a part of the show. There was no fire escape. People jumped into the alley next to the theater and it became known as "Death Alley" because people died from the fall. Many people have had eerie feelings while walking through the alley and have felt tingles on their hands when they go near the sewer in the alley.
