The winery at Marjim Manor in Appleton is packed with some of the friendliest ghosts in New York — at least according to the owner. Guests reported spotting the original owners of the home, built back in 1834, as well as the ghost of a dog that likes to rub against guests’ legs as they tour the grounds.
14 West 10th, NYC
Twenty-two ghosts roam the halls of the quiet townhouse at 14 West 10th St., in New York’s largest city. Mark Twain was a former tenant and wrote about the supernatural experiences that occurred during his time. The home is aptly named The House of Death by locals, and is the site of more than one murder.
Rolling Hills Asylum
Rolling Hills Asylum was once a 19th-century poorhouse that later became an infirmary, an orphanage, a hospital and then a nursing home. Thousands of deaths occurred here over the years, and there are supposedly 1,700 unmarked graves on the premises. Ghostly spirits are spotted frequently, with a seven-foot-tall shadow man believe to be a former inmate the most common.
Letchworth Village rests on 2,362 acres of land and was once a home for the mentally and physically disabled. Like many asylums, the treatment of the residents was poor and many passed away on site. Today, the children who were experimented on are said to still roam the halls and land surrounding the building.
