  1. My mom and aunt worked there as janitors, they say the editor watches you from his office and can be seen closing and opening the curtains

  2. Worked there for 10 years. Many sightings from staff at night of editor/owner looking out of old office windows onto the main lobby. In the Basement as well. Dark suited man seen toward front of building.

  3. I dated a guy who worked here. I have absolutely seen a security guard from the wrong era in the middle of the night. Also the dog as well. Its 100% legit.
