    Growing up in a very old house (originally a cabin in 1867 according to family) on lower east side I always remember seeing what I call “shadow people”. Late at night mostly after midnight I would see a glowing shape of a old hunting rifle above my bedroom window and would see a outlined shadow of a person in the Dark. But the outline was extremely darker than the surrounding areas. There were more than one and they seemed to move with an intelligence. Now wither real or just fevered imaginings of a child I don’t know

  2. I moved into New Castle 4 yrs ago.I started staying with my Uncle,who loves in a house,that is split into 2 up n down apt.,on Wallace.It truly in haunted at this spot.One Easter morning I was still resting,and out of nowhere,I hear children’s little feet and giggling.Most of all,a female(I believe)spirit rules this home.I felt her morning till 8pm.,In front of one of the bedrm windows(Unc lives upstairs).As day went by,the energy would feel more frantic.I feel alot of anger in there in the evening.You could feel being followed,up n down the stairs to basement.Like afraid of being pushed frm being hovered over.I love my Uncle,but I stay away from there.Very rarely do I visit.The last time I did,I watched a plastic coffee lid slide across coffee table,then fly at me,and landed in my lap.Needless to say I’m still spooked.My Uncle says it there too.But it really don’t bother him.One thing for sure,he’s got guts.Im glad I could share.Sincerely,Jennifer Lee
