Most likely natural explanation (such as something that owners hung in the windows or reflections, etc) for images but spooky looking house none-the-less. Looks like a prototypical 'haunted house' with a mysterious backstory.

Looks more like window decals.

Yea, there is probably a rational explanation. Though the one offered in the article should easily be able to be tested. For one, check back every day for about a week or two to see if the prints are there every time you check. Then after that, try to gain access to the house (legally of course) and go up to the windows and see if there is anything painted there. Take a scraping and test it.

That's true, someone could easily observe and test the prints over a period of time. I would be interested in hearing more detail as to 1) what the former owner's story of what they encountered, and 2) why no one else has bought the house in the past five years, considering that huge house on the National Registry is only listed at $105,000 (maybe it needs too much work).

I just called my dad to inform him we are all moving to NY. He didn't seem enthused at all.

Well isn't New York the state that requires the lister to let potential buyers know if the house is haunted? That may be something that is contributing to the low listing price and for keeping it empty for so long.

ETA: Found it! And it looks like that is the case.


Stambovsky v. Ackley, 169 A.D.2d 254 (N.Y. App. Div. 1991), commonly known as the Ghostbusters ruling, is a case in the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, that held that a house, which the owner had previously advertised to the public as haunted by ghosts, was legally haunted for the purpose of an action for rescission brought by a subsequent purchaser of the house. Because of its unique holding, the case has been frequently printed in textbooks on contracts and property law and widely taught in U.S. law school classes, and is often cited by other courts.

Interesting. So whether anyone believes it is haunted is immaterial, as long as it's reported to be so.
From your source: "The court noted that regardless of whether the house was truly haunted or not, the fact that the house had been widely reported as being haunted greatly affected its value".

Finger painting ghosts or meth cooking squatters keeping nosey people away?

Heh, nice catch. Would go with it looks more likely to be cutout holiday decorations as seen with the double nutcrackers in the windows below the ones in suspect. Either that or paint from someone playing a prank and or vandilizing. Wonder if there's more images from a close time frame to compare.

I agree. They look too clean and prominent.

Hmmm, well, is this supposed to be a picture of entities in the room? Looking at the window on the right there, part of the whatever-it-is in the window has a shadow cast on it from the roof overhang, leading me to believe it's just something stuck to the window, as opposed to something in the room looking out of the window.
