West Orange, New Jersey Ghost Sightings
I lived on Watchung Avenue in West Orange. Twice we saw a white ghost. One time when we were sleigh riding in the cemetery. We were climbing back up the fence to our yard, and she was behind my buddy as I was helping over the fence. Another time was when me and my brother were sneaking out at night, and very slowly this same women in white was float down on our driveway. Four of my friends saw it too.|

This all happened so fast. My boyfriend and I had a part time job placing directional signs along highways and such. We had a route that started in West Orange and ended in Livingston. I would always drive, and he would get out and place the signs. The town is beautiful and peaceful with lots and lots of trees and amazing homes. It always felt peaceful until I drove up Mt Pleasant Avenue on the West Orange side. I would feel creeped out every time, and my hair would stand on end. I did not know why, and it would be only from where I turned onto Mt Pleasant Avenue until I reached the corner of Merklin and Kelly. I told my boyfriend that I felt sort of scared on this part of the road, and he just laughed it off and told me to stop watching my ghost shows. I just wrote it off as the road being poorly lit and the tree lined street with barely any sidewalks, and it is not really city life like where I live where at 1:00 am there are tons of people and cars around.
One weekend we reached Mt Pleasant Avenue, and I told my boyfriend ''this road creeps me out. '' As I drove around the bend right after Skyline Drive I saw a girl walking alone in the distance. I pulled over, so he could put up a sign, and I said'' this girl is nuts walking on this road with no sidewalk. '' At this point the girl was close enough where I could see her a little better. My boyfriend said ''who are you talking about?'' I said ''the girl over there,'' and I pointed. He asked ''what girl?'' I thought he was playing around with me since I am into all this ghost stuff even though I get scared, and he really is not. The girl looked like she was in her teens (maybe around seventeen. ) She had a pale complexion, and she had long dark hair about midway down her chest. She was wearing a grayish long sleeve shirt with a long skirt to her ankles (I don't remember the color) and some kind of canvas looking sneakers. She had her arms crossed on her chest walking with her head slightly down. I turned to my boyfriend at this point. I was getting annoyed, and I said ''stop playing with me she's right there!'' The girl stopped walking and was standing there with her head down. My boyfriend said ''babe there's no one there. '' All my hairs were standing straight up, and I started to shake a little bit because I was thinking ''why do I see her and he doesn't?''
My boyfriend got in the car, and the girl started walking again. As I drove past her, I saw her face and it was the creepiest thing I have ever seen. She had a twisted evil looking smile (smirk) on her face. It was like something you would see on paranormal witness, and when I said twisted I meant it literally. The corner of her lip on the right side was curled up and around her eyes were dark circles like Uncle Fester. I said to my boyfriend (who was checking off the list for the sign we just placed) ''look! Look! Do you see her now?'' He looked up and said ''no I don't! You're going nuts!'' I was angry because I thought he was still messing with me. I stopped the car and looked back, and the girl was not there. There was no way she could have turned the corner so fast, and if she crossed the street I would have seen her because the left side of the road had more light then the side we were on. I freaked out so bad and my boyfriend was getting freaked out because of how I reacted that I could not drive. That night he drove and placed the signs. I was too scared to get out of the car.
