New York State Dominates List of Haunting Abandoned Places


At last, a list in which New York State may excel!

Our state makes quite the showing in "The 38 Most Haunting Abandoned Places On Earth."

There is a roofless Seneca Lake farmhouse that sits by a yard full of abandoned cars. And an asylum built in 1869 in Willard. Got to have an asylum in there, you know? People are always picking on asylums, especially writers who cannot use apostrophes correctly. (As we say here in Buffalo, we are just saying.)

There is Bannerman Castle in Pollepel Island, N.Y. How can we not have heard of this place?

City Hall Station in New York City is beautiful.


So is an abandoned Domino Sugar factory in Brooklyn.


Other sites include Pripyat, Ukraine, abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and a scary-looking hotel in North Korea, just so you see what we are up against here.

The competition is keen.

We are world class!
