  1. arguably the most famous sky scraper in the world Hauntings would be odd. there have been no successful suicides in decades, not since the 1930’s. a palastinean terrorist shot one man to death on the observation deck. the problem is the place is an office. people don’t live lives there and usually don’t die. the few suicides were people looking to jump off the famous land mark (one was a construction worker who’d been fired. As dramatic as the building is for what goes on there, it’s as likely to have hauntings, or as unlikely as any other office building in midtown.
