  1. I live near here and I’ve been there many times, but never noticed anything paranormal. I’ll be sure to pay more attention next time I go there.

  2. I worked in that building for twenty years and there were always reports of shadow people, disembodied voices, cold spots & phantom footsteps. Once while working in the basement, someone walked right up behind me…I turned to talk to them but no one was there. That being said, I like most people in FDNY-EMS love that building which is a great part of our training and History.
