A pool in McCarren Park has caught the attention of paranormal fans. When McCarren Park opened the giant pool in 1936, it had a capacity of 6,800. It recently reopened after being closed for over 30 years, and is rumored to be haunted by an invisible little girl. Cold spots, orbs, voices and more have been detected here. Incidentally, three men are said to have died at the pool: One was murdered and two drowned when they sneaked over the fence to have a nighttime swim.
