Heathcote Crossing

Built in 1924 to be a restaurant supporting the rail line that ran between New York and Boston it has had a storied history and a string of restaurants occupying the site. Said to have been a speakeasy in the 20’s and a brothel in the 60’s. There are no records of any arrests for solicitation but people would hardly admit they had been to the brothel before going home. It is also said to be badly haunted.

The ghost of a murdered girl is said to roam the upper stories of the building. The form of a dejected man in workman’s clothes has been seen outside the building staring at it. The cellars are said to be particularly nasty with something unwholesome below that causes the many servers to refuse to go down there alone after dark.

  1. A few years ago a friend of mine was a regular here. She said the staff so hated going into the basement that if it was near closing time on a slow night she would be compted a free drink just to get her to linger so they wouldn’t be there alone.

  2. I grew up in Scarsdale and the road just behind the building-obviously the old bed or the rail road was always creepy. Before I knew there had been a railroad there, more than once driving along it at night I got the feeling of a large steam train coming up behind me. A friend of mine also had the same experience.

  3. it was a upscale French restaurant in the 1970’s whose upper level and bar was a very crowded nightspot. so busy there was no room for any ghosts to appear.
