One told me that he got hit by a train. I went into a church and prayed. I went to a Catholic church, and they poured holy water on me. I saw them again, and every now and then I hear them, but I am a devout Christian. I know that these are not ordinary ghosts. These are demons, and they are in a parallel world -- a spiritual world that we are not supposed to see but some of us do. It's best not to talk to them. They don't like to leave. If you
see this stuff, it's best to keep on walking and do a lot of praying.|

I worked on the Independence Square at a childcare facility. There were rumors of hauntings before I had come to work there, but mostly from the old building on 23rd Street. Well, one day I needed to go into the attic to switch out my toys for the kids. The attic can be a very creepy area and makes you feel uneasy when you're there alone. You feel like someone is watching you, so I was grabbing a few toys when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye by the dumb waiter elevator. I knew I was alone in the attic and instantly froze up. I slowly turned to see what was moving and saw a man's figure, transparent but vivid in detail, walking across the attic behind boxes and file cabinets before disappearing into the wall.
Needless to say I gathered my things quickly, stating that I was leaving and didn't want to bother him. I rushed down the steep stairs and locked the door. When I returned the keys to the receptionist, I startled her with how excited I was. I told her what had happened, and she just smiled. It seems my senior coworkers had seen their share of the paranormal at the old building on 23rd street. I never went into the attic without a buddy after that.

Comment by Brian: What cross street were you at on 23rd Street. A lot of old buildings more toward the square.
