Pilgrim Psych Center

Ok ok so yeah, this this blog isn't technically about Westchester, NY but I've been spending some time out in LI lately and when I first went there I thought, it's an island, how scary can it be? Hahaha well there's plenty of disturbing history there!

I was recently introduced to the Pilgrim Psych Center, an institution that for the most part is out of use and abandoned and it's beyond scary! Besides security apparently checking the area often, I'm not quite sure if you could pay me enough to get out of my car. I've now been there twice and at night just driving around (there's roads that go right around it and through it that other cars take) but because the building isn't super close to the road my pictures didn't exactly come out even when enhanced. Maybe during the day I will walk around the property but like I said, NO way at night. My friend saw quite a few things! Luckily I focused on the road and didn't stare too hard into the pitch black buildings.

Also on LI I'm not quite sure which town we were passing through from getting coffee, we found this road that seemed truly creepy, I'm pretty sure something there was calling to us so of course I made a U turn and head down. On one side was a golf course but with the snow covering it and the trees casting eerie shadows by moonlight and the other side was just woods with a sprinkling of houses. My friend heard a groan in the woods and we heard what sounded like something walking along side the car. Neither of us cared to get out but I did the routine of rolling down the window and taking pictures from the safety of my car. It was a dead end (IS ALL OF LI DEAD ENDS? IT'S SO ANNOYING!) and on our way back from the dead end heading towards civilization I had paused to take a picture when I noticed something in the woods, a decent height perfect black shadow in the shape of a person went from crouching to standing and I'm assuming staring at the car. I was quite shocked and decided to try and take a picture. Then after the flash ended it RAN at my car. I rolled up the windows and started driving quickly enough to get out of there but you could see it running behind the car. Completely freaked us out! In one of the pictures where you can see part of my car, I can't figure out what that is against my car. I want to say it's the dirt, grass or whatever on the road but at the same time my car doesn't just END abruptly, there's more to it. Possibly something there. In another picture if you can open it and make it a bit bigger there's a woman standing in the woods.

We also decided to check out the amnityville horror house. Not so impressed. We passed it quite a few times not realizing that it was the house until my friend looked on his phone (internet!!!) and realized that was it. No serious bad vibes, everything seemed normal the only thing wrong was that the police in the area had to be really bored because we saw cops pull over a lot of people!
