Ghosts & Hauntings

Who or what lurks in the corridors of the renovated Caledonian Hospital ? Image Credit:
At least three doormen have quit over reports of paranormal activity within the last six months.
The 123 On The Park building in New York, which sits on the site of the historic Caledonian Hospital, was reopened as a block of luxury apartments after renovations were completed last summer.

Not long afterwards however tales began to emerge of mysterious voices and eerie footsteps echoing through its corridors, stories that some people have come to attribute to the ghosts of the hospital's former patients still wandering aimlessly through the building.

The activity has made it more difficult for the owners to rent out the apartments and reports indicate that at least three doormen quit their jobs because they were too terrified to work there.
A superintendent of a nearby building recalled being told by one of the current doormen that the place was "a messed-up place to work" due to its haunted reputation.

"He said he was doing routine security walks in the basement and the back of the building, and every time he would go down there by himself, he would hear footsteps echoing around him," he said.

"He told me he felt like a presence was following him."

Anyone being scared away by supposed hauntings must just be clambering for a reason to quit their jobs.

I've had the footstep thing happen to me once in my life. I was staying in a cabin at Vallecito Lake, Colorado. I showed up early in the evening and decided to take a nap after driving up from New Mexico. My head hit the pillow and immediately I heard footsteps on the front porch that came into the living room area and headed for the bedroom. I called out a couple of times asking who was there. I didn't hear the door open (I had locked it) but the footsteps came into the cabin. Scared the beejeebus out of me. I got up and ran out the door and went back to New Mexico that night. I never went ba... [More]

Anyone being scared away by supposed hauntings must just be clambering for a reason to quit their jobs. I agree. I think that they decided that they didn't like the job and just needed a reason to quit.
