Many ghosts are said to have haunted the City College of New York. From as far back as the 1920s, witnesses have seen apparitions of former students and professors. Among those seen have been a student who died in 1918, apparitions wearing clothing from the 1960s or 1970s, and a sad-looking male apparition wearing the “grunge” style of more recent years.
