Long Island, NY has its fair share of haunted places, from centuries-old houses to abandoned buildings. I spoke with a representative of the Long Island Paranormal Investigators, and here's their list of the 10 most haunted places on Long Island:

1. Mt. Misery
2. Fort Totten (in Queens on geographic Long Island)
3. Shep Jones Lane
4. Revolutionary War Site on the South Shore (name withheld)
5. Kings Park Psychiatric Center
6. Hanging Tree
7. Ronkonkoma County Park
8. Reid's Ice Cream Factory
9. Fire Island Lighthouse
10.The Chandler Estate

Pictured above is Mt. Misery in West Hills in the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County. One of the most famous former residents of West Hills was Walt Whitman, who lived in the area as a young boy with his family.

Mt. Misery starts at the intersection of Broad Hollow Road/Route 110 and Sweet Hollow Road and ends near Jericho Turnpike. According to the Long Island Paranormal Investigators' website, there have been reports of screams in the night from that location, and there's a story from 1967 about an elderly woman who lived nearby that says she received visits from strange people who resembled Native Americans. They supposedly told the woman that the land her house rested on belonged to them.

Do you believe stories like these, or do you think they're just urban legends? Whether you get chills up and down your spine when you hear about ghostly visitations, or you scoff at these stories, you can read more on the next pages and see photos of some other supposedly haunted places on Long Island.
