and doesn't help when you're trying to ignore your paranoia and you hear heels walking upstairs. This place is super creepy. I can at least admit that.

When I was there back in 2007-2008 I was a security student and lived on 2T. I remember almost every night when I would go check hallways when I was on night duties and watching cameras, I would see a red ball bouncing on the top floor in the males dorm 3T. We would take that ball back to SPD (Single Parent Dorm) every single day and make sure that it was locked up in the toy room. Well, every single night that exact ball would be seen bouncing down the hallway followed by an apparition of a little girl in a blue dress and a red bow in her hair. It was fairly freaky to watch and note on the cameras.
In some of the rooms including my own room we had what looked like soldiers standing at the foot of our beds (full uniform). We would turn the light on at our bedside, and the figure was gone, but yes there was a small child's bloody handprint inside the old elevator that was no longer being used and marked off. I have seen it with my own eyes. It looked as if the child had slipped and reached out to stabilize themselves because there was a full handprint that smeared and dragged in a downward position. I would say that the child would have been approx 4-6 years of age.
Yes, there is an old - room school house about a mile to a half of a mile away from the campus with a cemetery of marked and unmarked graves of children that used to be there. A cemetery was right behind the campus with the adults graves of elderly who used to live/ stay there as well. It is a sight to see. If we could get ghost adventures to come to Manhattan, I bet they would see and feel what I experienced when I was staying there for that year.
I remember Reading that the center was once an insane asylum children's orphanage lake resort. Plus back in the day there was a fire that took place there and destroyed the spiral staircase inside the main lobby. You can see and still walk on the spiral staircase from the basement to the main and second floor, but from the second floor to the third floor it is gone because of the fire.
