New York City can come across as a pretty eerie place – between cockroaches, rodents, high rents, and subway commutes, there’s a lot to be afraid of. While to an outsider, these might seem like the only intimidating things about New York City, but far more frightening are all of the city’s spots that are rumored to be home to ghosts. Yep, the one thing you haven’t perhaps considered fearing in NYC are ghosts. Now you have to worry about the dead too.
In its history spanning more than 400 years, NYC has seen its fair share of ghosts and goblins. And just so you know, no corner of the city is safe from paranormal activity, be it an ordinary, uninspiring building in SoHo or any other famous landmark in the city. Every corner has its stories, every building, its spirits.
The Big Apple is full of ghost stories. And even its surrounding suburbs are supposedly haunted. Maybe paranormal is the only normal.
There’s a lot to choose from. But only if you dare. Here are some of the city’s most haunted places.
