  1. There is definitely something going on here. We see what appears to be a gray mass moving around the hallway and on occasion a scream or men talking but not visible. Check to see if anyone is in the hall or room, but no one is there. 100 River Mews, Edgewater, NJ.

  2. We lived in a haunted home for 4 years.. We think it was not a human ghost. That it was something else. 243 7th st. Palisades Park.
    It was black and lived in the attic. It walked on the roof at night.. and heavily stomped as it took ” foot steps” upstairs.. more beast like.. It would hide items and then the items would appear. It also touches us and let us know when it was around. The power it had was superhuman. It made all of our piping make alot of noise as my daughter would go up the steps to the apt. As we walked from our car to the apt , all the trees and shrubs would be blown to the side from a strong breeze. The previous owners had cameras installed. My daughter saw it hovering over me as I slept on my bed alone at night. It also appeared as a young woman in her late teens or early twenties with wavy dark brown hair below her shoulders and a long night gown from the era of 20’s. Her face appeared as if it were made of porcelain and had cracks from breakage. She was also barefooted. We think it followed us to our new apartment. But it shows up seldom now.

  3. Strong presence at the Carlyle. Felt somebody close my nose which instantly woke me. Cold shiver vibes when light is dimmed. Definitely something here cliffside park
