ever had anything strange happen there. She very quickly told me not to be ridiculous. She said, ''Those things aren't real,'' and walked away. Denial. There's no way anyone lived in that house and didn't experience anything when we rarely had a guest leave without being a believer.

I have had a few experiences at three different places while living in New York. I grew up in a house on Pratt Street. While I was younger I would hear my parents and grandmother talk about the ''ghosts,'' but I never witnessed anything until I was a teenager. I remember the first night I saw something, and it scared the hell out of me. It was really late at night, and I decided to clean my room. My door was open, and so was my little brother's across the hall. I could see him sleeping in his bed. I glanced over because I heard a noise. When I did there was what looked like a really tall black figure standing over my brother. It was hunched down and then stood straight up. As soon as I blinked, it was gone. I did not know what to think or do.
A few years later I started dating my boyfriend and snuck him into the house without my parents knowing. While we were in my room in the dark making out my boyfriend suddenly jumped and said ''What was that?'' I asked him ''What? What's wrong?'' He said he felt an ice cold hand on his back. It was not mine. Since then I have had odd random things happen like someone calling my name but find out I was the only one home or hear footsteps going up the stairs. Then when I had kids they would look off in random directions at nothing. They would giggle and wave. One time my one-year-old looked at the corner of the bedroom, pointed, and started crying. Then she said ''no, mommy. No!'' Ever since then she would not go near the one corner of the room.
Then there was my aunt's old house on Lyon Street. When I was younger my sister and I would stay nights with my cousin. Every one of those nights something strange happened. We heard footsteps, voices, and doors opening and closing. Years later my aunt moved away and gave the house to my boyfriend and me. Everything was fine until after a couple days of living there. One night while my boyfriend was at work my two-year-old and I were the only ones home. She was in the living room watching TV, and I was in the dining room cleaning. I kept getting the feeling someone was watching me from the kitchen. I bent down to sweep stuff into a dust pan and felt what felt like a pretty large hand touch my back. I jumped up and spun around thinking my boyfriend came home but nobody there.
