I took interest in this asylum particularly because of the stories of mistreatment, the hauntings, and that my great grandmother was a nurse there-I
want to collect and share stories from family of that experience, on a medical/historical note.
The video above to prior footage found on Youtube, as the location has been turned into an apartment complex. Tenants, as shared online, claim it is
very haunted still.
The hospital was the inspiration for the Arkham Institution that H.P Lovecraft often wrote about (Pickman), which was, in turn, the inspiration
for the Arkham Asylum from the Batman universe, which famously houses such classic rogues as The Joker and Killer
Croc. Source- image above also from
While a tourist hot spot showing history of the city-which is underground now, it also can be quite creepy, some say quite haunted. It was shut down
until the 60's due to the Plague. My tour, 32 feet down into the old Wild West, concluded with one of the first orb images I had taken that I
I live close to Waverly Hills and have been there twice. It is indeed a very creepy place. I felt things...didnt see anything but on several occasions
felt the hair on the back of my neck stand up and got goose bumps.
I like the history behind waverly Hills. TB Hospital, thousands died there, including children.

Thanks for a great, very interesting thread, & especially for the video of the Boatyard in Staten Island, NY.
A couple of years ago I found a photo essay by a photographer named Shaun O'Boyle,
done at that place, & have been haunted by the images ever since.
I found the photos of the place to be deeply disturbing somehow, but have returned to look again a few times over the years.
Definitely one of the creepiest places I've ever seen!
This town in Southern Brazil holds an interesting distinction – it is the twin capital of the world. In fact, it’s twin birth rate is 18 times
higher than the world average. Why? Well according to the locals it was after chief Nazi physician Mengele, who fled to the village after World War
II, that the births started happening. Oddly enough Mengele was known to have a strange fascination with twins. Modern scientists, however, propose
that it is most likely due to toxic waste or inbreeding. Either way, it’s pretty creepy
but people need to watch "The Recreator" movie first
