However, it didn't bring any closure. It just continued until we moved. I still live in Westchester, but not in the area where this all happened. We still have unusual things happen every now and then, but nothing like the house on Portsmouth.

This whole neighborhood is haunted. My grandma moved to North Roosevelt Road, and from day one they have been seeing shadows walk across upstairs and standing in the doorways at night. We would always hear the wooden closet doors rolling open when nobody would be up there.
One time my mom was there alone and was walking to the kitchen, and something banged so loud above her head; plaster almost fell on her. Once when I was little I was sleeping with her upstairs, and something was scratching her foot. It woke her up, and she thought it was me. When she rolled over I was sleeping. That knocked out right there in her face. I grew up and ended up buying the house next door. Big mistake! The same thing happens here.|
Sometimes I could hear someone run half way down the stairs and stop. When I look nobody will be there. One thing that used to happen was strange but not very scary. I would hear guys talking in the house. It was hard to hear and pin point where it was coming from; it was like in the walls.
I assumed it was residual energy coming from the basement because it sounded like guys sitting around playing poker or something, as if they were smoking and talking. Then I was talking to my neighbors and found they ALL had similar scary stuff happen like hearing babies cry, water turning on, and lights going on and off.
Recently a couple moved in, and when I met the wife the first thing out of her mouth was asking if I knew of her house being haunted. She said her normally lazy dogs were going crazy barking at walls and what-not. Well I did some investigating and figured out why. The land is on the same latitude of old cemeteries to the west (Queen of Heaven and Mt. Carmel) and the East (Forest Home).
