A 1979 battle over a trade has resulted in some lingering spirits. The two angry men involved in the conflict decided to step outside, where they fought near the horse statue fountain. One man was hurt so badly that he died before paramedics could help him. Janitors in the building say they can still hear the sound of two men arguing after the workers have left for the day.

  1. I use to work in this building. I worked forex, and project A hours. Sometimes til three am.
    (I don’t look for ghost or spirits but I believe they exist..)
    I use to go walk outside, sit by the water fountain and horse statue.
    It was peaceful and I always felt safe. Never had anything crazy happen in that general area.
