  1. Hung out there a lot as a kid. Always loved the Memorial day party there where they served endless free clam chowder all day long. Never had a haunted experience.

  2. cold icy feeling when u go into the room? close the window!!!! Bottles hop off the shelf? the only thing that hopped when I played ball for them in the 80’s was me hopping off my seat when I was finished drinkinghahahahahaha

  3. Been a member there almost 40 years, when I was Chairman of the Board I was there late one night countindg out the register. Ihad all the lights lit and then heard someone call out my name. Looked around and saw no one, a few moments later it happened again. This time I walked around and loomed for someone, nobody there but me, no other cars there and it was winter so no one staying on a boat. It was pretty creepy.

  4. As a local resident, I would like to check this out for myself. Aside from joining the club (I don’t own a boat), is there any way for me to do this?

  5. It definitely is haunted. I hung out there for years. Hat-checked for parties. The third floor was definitely haunted. Had some experiences on the 2nd floor when hat-checking. I lived on Pavonia Court for 31 years so you can imagine how many times I was in the building.
