Probly the most famous haunted house lies in Amityville, Long Island. The Amityville Horror House, a beutiful dutch colonial which reeks of misery and pain. The house was the scene of a gruesome crime in November 1974.

Long Island has a long history of satanism and the occult. Ask oldtimers they can tell you more about Ronnie DeFeo, Ricky Kasso, John Ketcham etc.

When I first moved to NYC... One of the first places I wanted/went to see was the Amityville Horror house.

There wasn't much to it and - it seemed like a regular house - but, it was still pretty crazy to finally see it.. and yes, take pictures of it, as well.

I couldn't tell you how fast my heart was beating when we turned on Ocean Ave..

Actually Horror isn't really a haunted house, other than the Lutzes, any other families that have lived there for all these years never seemed to have of had a problem. This house isn't haunted, it is a house where multiple murders took place. The owners after the Lutzes never encountered ghosts or spirits walking thru the house and so on.

The Lutzes made this whole thing up because they really couldn't afford the house. How else could it be explained. The people that lived in the house after the Lutzes lived there for many years, and obvioulsy had no ghost problems.

Ronald DeFeo was a crack addict and a rotten boy, he was not possessed by the devil. Also, in the movies, they made it like it was the only house around, obviously if you google it, there are homes less than 25 feet away. Hardly anything to be scared of.

The only thing baffeling is, being the houses were so close together, no one heard all the shots, that I cant figure out.


A true haunted house has apparations and ghosts, 108 Ocean Ave doesnt.

CitiField.

That's a chamber of horrors, in my humble opinion.

True, plus the current owners have become annoyed at all the people coming to take photographs of the house and even wanting to see the inside (seriously?) The house is haunted by tourists now...

For the main question there's plenty of allegedly haunted spots in the 5 boroughs: the Merchant House Museum in the East Village, Morris Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights, St Mark's Church, 10 E. 11th Street in Greenwich Village, the Belasco Theater in Times Square and of course the basement of the New York Public Library.

Renwick ruins on Roosevelt Island is worth checking out too. Not a haunted spot but looks creepy at night.

For the main question there's plenty of allegedly haunted spots right here within the 5 boroughs; not only just homes: the Merchant House Museum in the East Village, Morris Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights, St Mark's Church, 10 E. 11th Street in Greenwich Village, the Belasco Theater in Times Square and of course the basement of the New York Public Library.

Renwick ruins on Roosevelt Island is worth checking out too. Not a haunted spot but looks creepy at night. If you're looking for spots outside the city take the Metro North up to Sleep Hollow Cemetery.
