I truly found this book to be wonderful. I was born in 1935 on S.I. I have so much info on all my family trees. I know all the houses that is in the book. I'M searching Stewart/Stuart, Winnants,Nye's,LakesI have heard from my Mother, grandparents about all the other names in the book. I enjoyed to see the pictures and about them. Of course most of my ancestries are long ago. I hope others check this book.

Happy Hunting.

This pamphlet-size book is informative and well-written. However, I do wish the author had included a photo of the Vanderbilt mausoleum.

I bought this book due to my interest in NYC, I thought it looked interesting, once I got home to read it I relized that the author wrote for the worst Newspaper in NYC the Staten Island, Advance, this is what the author basis all her information on, S.I. Advance article. I dont think that the S.I. Advance is a Reliable source of information hence this book has info that is not a good source of information, Great reader for entertainment purposes but not to be taken seriously, oh yea, I even looked into some of these claims, I was told at the Conference House by the groundskeepers that "NO GHOSTS ARE THERE, NEVER WHERE ANY". Go to these places yourself and ask.

this was a pretty interesting book, but it lacks photographs of the places taked about and actual proof of the events claimed. Overall I think it was interesting to read, well written, I would have given it 5 stars if it would have had some nice photographs and some more proof about the hauntings claimed.

I think this book is great! The author is a talented writer and has illustrated the book with plenty of photos. Don't know how the previous reviewer missed them - he must have had his eyes closed! Can't wait to visit the places Ms. Macken writes about and P.S. it's kind of hard for an author to provide information that PROVE ghosts exist!
