At Fort Wadsworth, the apparition of a soldier may appear to walk through walls and moving vehicles. Other strange things have happened here: One witness said she flashed back to wartime where she was apparently inside the body of a curly-haired nurse. She saw wounded and dying soldiers all around, then a soldier grabbed her arm and yelled for her to get down. After a big explosion, she found herself again in the present day. Other witnesses reported similar occurrences, such as suddenly seeing wounded and dead soldiers all over the field and blinking their eyes to find the soldiers had vanished.

  1. I lived on the base for 2 years and encountered a couple of ghosts in my house, one was a little girl and the other was a shadow that vanished

    Hi!! We were camping overnight at Fort Wadsworth on State. island,NY. This was shortly after 11pm. I started recording the lightning with the Verrazano bridge in the background because it was really amazing there was absolutely no rain or thunder just a lot of lightning. At the 23 second mark you can hear an eerie voice say something. I’ll let you decide you may think it says!! And I was ALONE the entire time I was recording!! People were about 20-30 feet behind me And I get make out A lot of my friends voices. And the breathing in the video is definitely, obviously, me! Don’t know what or who banged something twice in the beginning!! The campground has I believe seven or eight spots. And everyone of the spot was taken up by a friend of mine. There were no strangers there in the campground we were aware of!! Would love to hear your thoughts!!! This entire video was shot entirely by me on my IPhone X.
