  1. Actually I lived there in 2008-09. Whoa! that place is nexus for paranormal activity. I used to live in the fourth floor, a lot of people were scare of my restroom, the restroom had a window in the shower, the window used to face the window across the other apartment. That apartment was abandoned,friends that would come and visit claim to have seen a man going crazy in that restroom and breaking stuff. In my kitchen pots used to fall and cupboards will open by them selves.

    My apartment was facing on the side of Garfield St. It was the last apartment at the end of the hall under the staircase that would take you to the fifth floor. Every day at 5:30 am you would hear someone run down the stairs, it sounded like they were being chase, and the reason I say that is because right after the first foot steps, the second foot steps would follow. One day I decided to check who was running down the stairs, and to my surprise it was no one!

    I had a lot dreams in that apartment, dreams that I believe were trying to tell me a story of the two people that died in my apartment. One was a young man that was thrown out the window, because my dream will always end with a man screaming and glass shattering, with vision of a young man with blond hair falling to his death. The other dream was set in the 60’s, a lady that died in her sleep, all i remember she was alone, smoked cigarettes, and smelled like whiskey. She will haunt the kitchen, the young man was always seen in the closet and laying on my bed.

    The sheets will move on my bed and sometimes in the middle of the night I will wake up, then my sheets where pull off me with such force that they would end up on the floor.

    Just if anyone wants to know, the apartment number was 430.
