Long Island's Haunted Hospitals & Asylums

For many, abandoned asylums, and closed down hospitals are some of the spookiest Real Haunts in STATE. Empty hospitals are eerie on their own, but even moreso when you consider that spirits of the departed could be lurking around any corner, and haunting the hallways of the hospital they once called home. Hospitals and Asylums are often considered hot spots for paranormal activity, since countless people pass on in those facilities, often times unexpectedly, which is one explanation for why many spirits still linger there, rather than crossing over.
