Ghost Hunting – N.Y. Castle
The image looks so lovely during the daylight hours. Don’t let it fool you. When the bewitching hour sets in things get very, very scary deep in the wilderness at one of the darkest locations on the east coast. Do not, I repeat, do not go here alone! You will be scared out of your mind if you do!
Ghost hunting can be fun and exciting no matter where you go. We highly recommend your first step being: Getting permission to ghost hunt on the property you choose before you plan anything. Ghost hunting ending in a free ride in a police car can be exciting, but you may not like the court process that will follow. We are all about excitement and adrenaline but not that kind. When you pick an interior vs. exterior such as a graveyard, permission should be a priority. Okay, enough lecture now for the fun stuff.
Old buildings with a unique history are always a fun place to start. This particular castle had a woman who owned it and spent her final years institutionalized. She was probably driven to insanity because this place is so scary it will make your mind wander to unearthly places. Even if you don’t see her or sense her while you are here, it can be fun to let your imagination run away while trying to document your orbs, vortexes, and ghosts. We not only felt her but we documented her also.
Our Magazine owner has been a sensitive and a psychic from the time she can remember. Although her strongest special sense is having premonitions sent in the form of dreams, sensing entities and energies is also second nature to her. While we were standing in the courtyard of the castle doing still photography one of our volunteers got a little spooked for a minute. Our magazine owner had been feeling a presence directly next to them for several minutes before this happened. We had been here one other time doing just still photography, and another assistant started to scream that there was something behind her. It was a terrifying moment that we had to get a grasp on quickly. If we let it get out of control, we would have a $6,000.00 camera left behind as we would be running for our lives.
We had someone assisting us, and these pages were named after her. She was assisting in the creation of the pages, and her name was part of the title of our pages and the heading of the main page. We had a falling out. Hence, the X’s on the front page. The Queen of Drama is no longer assisting us, but we did become friends again after a slight disconnect. We do love her and the queen word may be upsetting to her, but we are just keeping it for creative purposes. 🙂 Maybe we will keep these comedy inserts in the magazine to spiff things up. Darn, maybe we should not have fired her. Oh, and she did not want to be called fired. On a serious note; we know nothing about drama so we may just hire some drama, comedy writers for some excitement in here.
Back to the story. The two big scares happened in the same location the first and the second time with two different people. Eerily they both seemed to get scared almost in the same way suddenly. Both times our magazine owner knew there was an entity standing there before the others noticed. She described him as about 6’2″, tall, thin wearing a long straight black robe. He was intrigued and looking at the back of the camera at the LCD screen. We think this was the former owner of the castle.
