Going to start with an apology for the silly title, but the experience was a bit silly. I finally went to visit that cemetery turned city park across the street from me. It's been an unusually warm winter in the part of Upstate New York where I live. I also brought along my tablet, on which I installed an app called 'ghost radar'. It supposedly senses changes in the capacitors on the chips inside the device, determines if they're the result of ghosts or spirits trying to communicate, and displays results in the form of color coded blips of how strong the ghost is, some numbers, and sometimes words. Some reviews of it in the various app stores detail experiences using it to hunt for ghosts.
Before heading out, I tested it in my apartment and found the device quite app can detect the elevators in my apartment building. I turned it off and headed across the street. The park was empty of living people on my arrival, it being on a school day during normal school hours. At other times, the park would be too full of school children playing soccer, or drug dealers and homeless if late at night. I went about 1 in the afternoon, right after I'd eaten lunch.
Almost as soon as I brought up the ghost radar app, my tablet started spouting words. The same words, over and over. 'chicken wings'. Personally, I dislike chicken wings, as I find it to be too much work to get the little bit of meat off the tiny bones. So, either there was a hungry ghost who wanted me to get some wings, or there was a ghost just teasing me for my dislike of his or her favorite snack.

Hi. I have a sort of update to this story, and it is not a good one, but also not ghost related.
Someone went on a joy ride and vandalized the cemetery as well as some other city parks.
I'll be visiting the cemetery myself early next week to do as suggested by members of YGS, and also take a few pictures, but not of the damage.
