Rumor has it that Staten Island is home to some restless spirits.

 
• The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum is said to be haunted and has been the site of many paranormal investigations.
Every Friday in the month of October, guests are invited to join a "Haunted Historical Tour", discussing the home's historical and ghostly residences.  To learn more about the Haunted Historical Tour, visit their website.
 
• Once a 19th Century summer mansion, the Historic Old Bermuda Inn is now a popular restaurant and catering hall. Featuring a delicious menu and period décor, the Historic Old Bermuda Inn purportedly hosts more than just diners and events. Guests have often claimed to see apparitions or felt "cold spots."
 
• The site of a failed Revolutionary War peace treaty attempt, the Conference House is believed to be one of the most haunted spots on Staten Island. The manor house and surrounding land are said to host apparitions of British soldiers, a young boy, and a woman on horseback.
 
• Before becoming a Cultural Center, Snug Harbor was home to retired sailors. It is believed that some of these "Old Salts" still roam the site's Greek Revival Buildings and manicured grounds. In fact, Snug Harbor was recently featured on the Syfy show "Ghost Hunters".
