In our last blog, we discussed some of the most haunted places in New York, including the Utica State Hospital, Rolling Hills Asylum, and Canfield Casino. In the spirit of Halloween, we would like to explore a few more spooky locations.

Esopus Island

Centrally located in the middle of the Hudson River, this Island briefly housed the infamous occultist, Aleister Crowley. The only way to reach this island is by boat, and you can take a guided tour of this island during the day.
