It's the middle of winter, which means that we're stuck in this weird time of the calendar that only has Valentine's Day and no other major holiday. We're still far enough from summertime to not think about it, and certainly nowhere close to Halloween.

However, just because it's not the spooky season doesn't mean that there aren't spooky things around New York State.

New York is a one of the hotbeds in the entire country for supposedly haunted places. That's probably because New York state's history goes back further than other parts of the country (being officially a state in the United States).

There are quite a few haunted places across New York; from the New York City area and all the way to Western New York. The dark history of some of these places is truly terrifying and goes to show how drastically different a world we lived in a few decades ago and over 100 years ago.
