St. John Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in New York State, and is the final resting place of several famous people, including Geraldine Ferraro, Lucky Luciano and John Gotti. Some also say its home to a few not-so-restful spirits. Visitors frequently complain about strange sounds coming from areas of the cemetery that are clearly uninhabited, as well as cold spots throughout the area.
