The New York Ghost[1] was an American wizarding newspaper based in New York.[2] It had been published daily from at least 1863[3] and offered an early Sunrise Edition and an evening Sunset Edition, as well as a West Coast Supplement every Thursday and a Divination Supplement every Friday. In 1926, a single issue cost 0.03 dragots, while a 12 month subscription cost 5 dragots and was delivered by owl. Its slogan was "Enchanted Dispatches to the American Wizard".[2]


In the 1920s, The New York Ghost reported extensively on claimed sightings and Wizard Hunt for Gellert Grindelwald around the world, including Bratislava,[4] Paris, London,[5] New York, and Caxambu.[6]

It covered local incidents, such as a havoc caused by a Poltergeist in a Nashville diner,[7] as well as international changes, such as the legal Apparition age in Denmark.[5] It covered varying degrees of entertainment and academic subject matters, from listing Top Apparition locations in Canada[8] to discussing Korean Master Aurologists views on aura.[9]
