Welcome to the one of the most haunted locations in Staten Island, New York.The Kreischer Mansion is one dark and tragedy stricken location.

The Kreischer Mansion, one of the most haunted locations in New York, is a dark and tragedy stricken location that eerily calls out to paranormal investigators all over the world. As featured on Destination America’s Paranormal Lockdown and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, the macabre history of the Kreischer Mansion will send chills down your spine.

From the outset, the Kreischer Mansion seemed to be clouded with misfortune and catastrophe. Balthazar Kreischer built the twin Mansions as a gift for his two sons, Charles and Edward. Soon after the construction he passed away just before the Factory the sons inherited burned to the ground. The loss of fortune and stress of rebuilding led Edward to violently taking his own life in his home. Charles and the family often conducted séances attempting to reach Edward which may have opened a portal to even more sinister characters from the other side.

One of the most common sightings is of a woman peering through the windows of the Kreischer Mansion when no one is occupying the home. A woman’s voice has been captured on EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) and heard with the naked ear. She is wailing and crying out…could it be Edward’s widow still wandering the hallways looking for her lost love in death?

If the struggle and calamity of the Kreischer family wasn’t enough, the deplorable Mafia hit in the early 2000’s would definitely seal the deal on a malevolent haunting. The caretaker of Kreischer Mansion was paid $8000 by the Bonnano Crime Family to take out a snitch. The victim, Robert McKelevy, was stabbed, beaten, strangled, drowned, dismembered and burned in the furnace. The vile, ominous imprint of such a heinous crime is sure to leave its mark on a location.

Disembodied voices, full-bodied apparitions, investigators being scratched and pushed, arguing voices, slamming doors, shadow figures lurking in doorways—the Kreischer Mansion is a place that both experienced and beginner paranormal enthusiasts will want to investigate! The only question remains—are you brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in the basement and attempt to communicate with a Mafia snitch?
