A Very Greenpoint Ghost Story

In keeping with this week’s Halloween theme, I have selected a very special tale from Greenpoint’s past to share today. It involves a seance gone very, very wrong. From the November 10, 1923 edition of the New York Times, I present to you a ghost story that could only happen in the Garden Spot.

Some people might be afraid of ghosts, but we Greenpointers aren’t. We’ll even walk right up and bite them.

  2. Ha! That’s awesome. I wonder if that Dick Gallagher is related to the long line of Greenpoint Gallaghers who’ve been here forever. The Gallaghers have a rep for being… interesting.

  4. It may just be a Greenpoint thing. You wouldn’t believe the number of stories I have found that involve one human biting another.

Tell me what you're thinking...
