New York Post Interview with Jason Stroming

This story appeared in the October 27th edition of the New York Post.

Creepy Clown Spotted on Staten Island

As a native New Yorker and a paranormal investigator, I have to say that in my opinion,  the creepiest borough in New York City is Staten Island. Not Manhattan, not Brooklyn. Queens is barely on my radar, and the Bronx is scary for non-paranormal reasons, but the forgotten borough is the place to be if […]

Photo of the Week: The Matron’s House, Staten Island, NY

This week’s photo, like last week’s photo, comes from Snug Harbor on Staten Island, New York.

Without further ado, may I present to you a story from the New York Times, published on March 10th, 1884. Coincidentally, on the […]

Halloween Events at Snug Harbor

Yes, it’s shameless self-promotion time again, but this time, I’m taking a few friends along with me. With September almost halfway over, those of us with paranormal leanings are finding our attention becoming more and more focused on the Halloween season. And Halloween season means lots of ghost tours of haunted locations and other fun […]
