Abandoned Amusement Park - North Hudson's Frontier Town - North Hudson "When we talk about ghosts, we are often discussing the forgotten people. Their names and identities have been erased, replaced with the translucent image of someone who was once alive. Sure, there are some famous ghosts, who are as well known in death as they were in life, sometimes more. But, for the most part, the ghosts we encounter are those who have not moved on in death, even as those who knew and loved them have moved on. But not all ghosts happen to be living entities."

The Hauntings of Starr Hill Road - Starr Hill Rd - "As paranormal investigators, we are interested in the history of sites.

The Haunting of Stone Mill - Little Falls - "One of the questions paranormal investigators ask themselves is regarding the location of haunted sites. Anecdotal evidence tells us that there are a lot of haunted buildings by rivers and other bodies of water. Folklore tells us that ghosts can’t cross running water, so does this mean that spirits hit a river and then stop at the nearest building?
