"I was told that one of the Janitor's at the school went psycho and killed a few of the students there. After the incident many parents withdrew
their children and the school was eventually shut down and the building was condemned. The school is said to be haunted, but of course that is nothing
more than an urban legend. Many kids have since tagged the place and further destroyed what is left of the building. I do not recommend that you tour
the place because it's very and unstable and of course you'll probably be arrested for trespassing.
Although the above speculation is interesting and intriguing, I'm afraid that I have some boring and far less sexy information than the mass murder
legends - among other things - that are circulating about Public School #4 (aka the Annie Lytle School) on the cusp of downtown in the Riverside area
The school was decommissioned over a land use dispute circa 1960 after being a secondary school since 1916. It was sold into private ownership about
1974 when it was slated to be converted into condos, or artist colony housing, or a senior community, or .....the list goes on. The further destroyed
and vandalized it became, the more expensive it got for developers to refurbish it, so backburnered it was and there it remains. It's a cool, spooky
looking building, but the bottom line is that the basement is cold because its underground, not because its haunted. You can't find documented
evidence of a mass murder because it didn't happen. Sure would be nice to see the old eyesore made more pretty and useful and interesting - much
nicer than seeing some goofy kids' "taggggzzzz". Word up to ya momma, or whoever raized ya sorry butt! Everybody knows peops tagz cuz they need a
cheap high anyway. Har har...........
Heres some credible scoop to let you know whats going on with the Lytle Building (Public School #4):
I read about the stuff above. And decided to copy it to put it on here, But seriously, i live here and theres nothing haunted about it.
The roof is still in tact. Yea the structure isnt very safe to go in, but you can def go into it.
