We work in the garment district of midtown Manhattan, where many generations of office workers have come and gone and accidents have happened over the years. Directly across from my boss's office is an abandoned floor space which has not tenants since we moved in here 5 years ago.
Every once in awhile when I'm in meetings with him I notice workers shuffling across the empty office space, some in clothes that look dated. They are flesh and blood, nothing ethereal or otherworldly about them. Move and take up space the same as colleagues on the floors above and below them. I had always assumed they were contractors or construction workers looking to remodel the space. I was usually too busy with what my boss is saying to think anything about it.
The other day when I was in my morning meeting I noticed that one of them, a young gentleman seemingly in his 20s or 30s, had an appearance that looked off. As I looked directly at him staring out the window I thought for a split second I could see through him.
Then it just hit me like a ton of bricks: I've been seeing ghosts every day for the last 5 years. Since the building is prewar and likely industrial, if I'm a ghost that's likely to be a place I want to hang out in.
Is it possible that ghosts can be shuffling around an office working like they did in life and appear like that all day every day?
Could this have been an industrial accident or disaster that is somehow leading them to keep haunting the space? What could I be seeing and is it possibly paranormal? This has been weighing on my mind all weekend.
