'White Lady' spooks park visitors in Rochester

A tree in Durand-Eastman Park sports a ghostly visage thanks to the destructive effects of Mother Nature.
The phenomenon, which at a distance looks like a wailing specter with its arms outstretched, is actually an area of torn-up tree trunk caused by a recent spate of strong wind.

The eerie human-like form however is particular fitting as the park has long been home to a 'White Lady' or 'Lady of the Lake' legend dating all the way back to the 19th century.

The story goes that the ghost of a woman wanders the park in search of her daughter who was murdered by a group of hoodlums. Depending on which version of the tale you read, it is also said that the woman either died of a broken heart or killed herself out of grief for her loss.

There have been several sightings of the lady's ghost in the park over the years with the legend becoming so well known that it was even featured in the 1988 movie 'Lady in White.'

"I think it's spooky... it's definitely pretty creepy," said park visitor Jamal Bollar.
