Widely considered as one of the world’s most haunted places, 112 Ocean Avenue has inspired heaps of folklore. Following the DeFeo murders of 1975, in which a son murdered his entire family in their beds, a family of five, the Lutz’s, moved in. They immediately began encountering strange happenings. When upstairs, George, the father, would hear a noise which he described as a “marching band tuning up” or something radio-like, but would cease to hear it when he went downstairs. His wife Kathy would feel embraced by “an unseen force,” and one morning woke up with red welts on her chest. Their youngest, Missy, would often see red glowing eyes, and sometimes an accompanying wild pig-like figure. Less than one year after moving in, the family moved out, leaving behind all their possessions. The final straw was seeing green sludge oozing from keyholes and down the hallway walls.

#2. Rolling Hills Asylum

Rolling Hills has been many things over the years, a nursing home, tuberculosis hospital, orphanage, poor farm, infirmary…and home of the dead. People in the morgue have reported strange disembodied voices and even being knocked off their feet. Then there is “Shadowy Hallway” in the East Wing, in which there are supposedly moving shadows that make their way towards you. These shadows take on all forms, human shape and otherwise.

Some of the unexplained phenomena include phantom animals, lights being switched on and off, unexplained footsteps, shadowy apparitions, and strange mists that only appear in photographs. The Grays, who own and operate the mansion, even claim they were given a gift by one of the ghosts, a young girl who was a previous resident of the house.

Many guests have reported strange occurrences at this Lower East Side hotel, which is positioned next to Marble Cemetery. Some guests have had conversations with people who seem to simply disappear. One even reported upon entering her room being greeted by a woman in a white gown. Another Perhaps even more strange is that around 1am every night, the elevators go out of control. Be careful on any late night visits from your room to the downstairs bar.
