On January 3, 1870, workers began construction on New York City’s Brooklyn Bridge. Today, exactly 144 years later, the bridge is a beloved landmark. But is it also haunted?
On January 1, 1892, Ellis Island opened it doors to U.S. immigrants. The U.S. Bureau of Immigration processed 12 million immigrants at Ellis Island before the facility shut down in 1954, but not everyone found their happy ending. Over 3,000 immigrants died on the island during its 62-year run, and rumor has it some of them still haunt the historic property.
