Ghostly Ride at Former Lunatic Asylum ?


Occasionally one hears tales of ghost stories here on Roosevelt Island which is only to be expected taking into account the Island's history to various hospitals, a notorious penitentiary, and a lunatic hospital. For the most part any current tales (they are actually quite rare) of ghosts come from the current residents of the Octagon complex which sits upon the site of the former lunatic asylum and which restored that site's central octagonal structure.

The above photo found on Flickr posted by paulsahner makes no claim to being a shot of a ghost and their car but it sure does make you think someone or something just pulled up to the Octagon entranceway looking to pickup a spectral passenger.
