My 9/11 Ghost- Part 3 on 2017-09-11

I wrote about two other experiences in years past that may or may not have been connected to victims of the 9/11 attacks. You can check my past stories for those. I live in a different apartment now, slightly further downtown. I am sure at least a few people who lived in this urban housing devel...

Was It Chester? on 2017-08-08

I had a huge scare at work today. I was in the middle of a business call when I clearly heard someone whisper my name right behind my ear. I sit right in front of an older coworker. It clearly was not his voice; it was a very urgent and hushed whisper. I asked out loud who whispered my name but both...

My Therapist's Office on 2017-05-31

I go to a shrink in midtown and every time I'm in her office I see human shapes in my mind floating up and down when she is talking. They are usually around the size of her head but sometimes I perceive them to have other facial features that don't resemble hers. Sometimes I think it is because ...

Haunted Biltmore Hotel on 2017-03-29

Spent a few nights recently at Miami's famously haunted Biltmore hotel. If you've never heard of the Biltmore, it was built in the 1920s and used to be a military hospital during WW2. There is also a 20s era mobster who haunts it apparently. I was there for a wedding. I had a hard time sleeping ...

Changing The Weather on 2017-03-15

In 2012 I was working on New York's Times Square, doing a promotional event for about a week. Working out there and around so many people you see everything and anything. But one experience stood out and remains the strangest thing I have ever seen. My last day of work on the promotion was the d...

The Man Who Wasn't There on 2017-02-28

I work in a modern office building in Midtown, for a busy staffing agency where there are people coming in and out all day. But one day, there was a man who came in that did not have an appointment on the books. In fact, it seems no one saw him at all. This afternoon, a young Hispanic lady c...

Premonition Through Song on 2014-07-07

Last night I had this song on repeat, a rap song about you never knowing when it's the last time you see a person before they pass, so say what you have to say now. I forget the title and artist. It had been years since I heard the song and it stuck with me when I was asleep. Especially the last par...

My 911 Ghost Is Back on 2012-09-11

I previously published a story on here about a possible ghost in my apartment in New York on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Today (9/11/12), again something crazy spooky happened. I had tried to sleep really heavy because I have a long day. The fact it's the anniversary of 9/11 was not on my m...

What Was That? on 2012-09-05

A couple blocks from my house in New York there is a large church. Being that I was raised Jewish I usually have no business going in there. The other day I got a call in the middle of the busy street, so I ducked into the church lobby to take the call, given it was the closest quiet place. When I w...

911 Anniversary Ghost? on 2012-04-02

Being a Manhattan native I was trying not to make a big deal about the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It's always been really touchy for me and I usually don't like to think much about it, even on the anniversary that happens each year. I was hungover that day (Sunday, 9/11/11), and completely wasn't...

Melda I think you are absolutely right. Probably is subconscious. I'll try and make a mental note of what the man looked like and see if it keeps coming back every year.

What's interesting is that you never had any connection to Paul in life, just one of the millions of us who love those movies.

Thanks very much for sharing. It means a lot to know that my stories can encourage others to share. So much I want to learn from you guys!

THANK YOU for sharing. This is a wonderfully written, poignant story and I'd love to hear more about your adventures as a serviceman.

Keep writing! Scot

That's amazing feedback, thanks so much for your help Melda.

I feel like one of those stupid ghost shows on TV who says they're going to talk to the ghost of Elvis or something to get ratings.

Sorry for anyone who feels let down!

These are all right on responses. And yes, there are times and subjects when I've noticed more of these phenomena. I guess it is sort of an aura.

The one thing all spirits prey upon is fear. Just open your mouth and talk to it. Usually if you tell them you don't want them there they'll respect it.

Didn't see anything at the hotel about a person who tells ghost stories, just FYI. If I saw it and had the time I would have gone!

Thanks for your help Tenilicious. Unfortunately I don't see any way we can upload photos to our stories on here. Maybe something for the IT department to look at...

Thanks very much Argette for reading. Could not have been an insect, very distinct streak. My guess is a dead family member stopping through for the wedding.

And yes, the experience in my room was pretty jarring.

That's crazy. Sounds like he definitely made his presence felt.

Kikigirl, and the rest of you, I think you nailed it. Definitely has to be someone from her past. It's kind of like these spirits follow their loved ones around in their daily lives I guess. Thanks for your help guys!

Great comments guys. Still can't figure out what I saw for the life of me, but I've learned from all you guys' input, which is all I can ask for by sharing. Thanks!
