Castle Kildarby [1] is the former home of the Kildarby family and now a tourist attraction in Central Park.

HistoryEdit

In the 15th century, Lord Kildarby and all his men were killed when an invading army staged a surprise attack. But the invaders were never able to stay a single night in the castle. The spirits kept flinging the invaders over the parapet (a protective wall at the top of a fortification, around the outer side of the wall-walk). After the invaders left, the Kildarby family moved back in and there were only occasional spirit manifestations - usually the sound pipes and drums. [2] It was relocated to New York by Warner Applegate III over the course of a year and donated to the city as a centerpiece of the gala summer festival. He purchased it from the current lord, Liam Kildarby, who was down on his luck at the time. [3] [4] [5]

The Ghostbusters won a wager proposed by Kildarby but they allowed the ghosts to stay in exchange for not bothering tourists during the day. Mayor Lenny relented but asked about the pipes. Peter assured him there would be none heard... before sundown.
