    As a Denver transplant and lover of history, I really enjoyed this book. Everywhere I've lived I develop fascinations with certain buildings, and this book fed my curiosity...Now I know what was in most of those mysterious empty lots! There is also a lot of interesting information about the social evolution of the area.

Everywhere I've lived I develop fascinations with certain buildings, and this book fed my curiosity...Now I know what was in most of those mysterious empty lots! There is also a lot of interesting information about the social evolution of the area. Goodstein captures the turmoil of a changing urban neighborhood, tackling the issue of when revitalization becomes gentrification, and how the character of the neighborhood is affected. I like the fact that he champions the underdog in these discussions, as a person who will probably never be able to afford to buy a home here, but loves our big, creepy old apartment, I hope with all my heart that this never becomes another Cherry Creek. As far as ghosts are concerned,just attend a party here and listen to the conversation after people have thrown back a couple of drinks. You will hear a tale or two, I guarantee. Having resided in Capitol Hill for the past few years, I have adored it, defended it, and occasionally cursed it, but it is now my home, which is quite a statement for this wanderer.

    The title is misleading, as the ghost stories are few and far between. Rather, it's a social history of Denver, partitioned by neighborhood on Denver's greater Capitol Hill area. Some might find that approach more entertaining (and it is), but for those only interested in Denver ghost stories, you will have better luck with another book. (I used to live next door to the house on the cover!)

    This book is an exceptional history of nearly every home, apartment building, and business - as well as the people who built them - that made Capitol Hill the eclectic and energetic place it is today. Extremely thorough, the reading can be a bit dry at times, but it really is fascinating. Not too many stories about actual ghosts overall, but a great book nonetheless.
