Paranormal Expert Talks About New York's Haunted Spots
A self-proclaimed ghost-hunter says New York City has some of the most haunted places in the world. Kate Davey - who does research for an Internet company - says places where people hang out everyday of the week, have a lot of paranormal activity.
She says Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village was a public hanging square in the 18th century - and a lot of spirits roam among the college students, tourists and New Yorkers who hang out there.
Davey adds that New York City's history dating back to the 1600s makes it a perfect environment for unrested souls. She says dozens of restaurants and other public places have paranormal activity, including one Greenwich Village restaurant - where the maitre D' quit because he was pushed down the stairs by something he couldn't see.
Davey gives out a list of the most haunted places today at 11 a.m. at Saint Marks Church on east 10th Street.
