I live in the old St. George hotel. I'm a Pace student. I'm fascinated by the history of this building - and trying to find out about its "haunted" stories".

Our entire floor is being plagued by a late night knocker. I myself have answered the door only a second after its been knocked on to find the hall empty. And it's a pretty long hallway. Far-fetched, I know. But one can't help but wonder. Bwahaha!

Anyhow, I'd love to see what your research brings up on this old hotel and its haunts.

Also - with Halloween rapidly approaching - does good old Brooklyn have any great ghost tours or haunted houses - so we don't pay a fortune or wait in line for three hours for *scary voice* BLOOD MANOR?

I'm in the neighborhood for three decades. The part of the St George which are now the student dorms was an SRO with wild crazy people living there. I remember a man jumping out the window to his death on Clark St. For a long while the building was empty. I think squatters were in there. Also, during the late 70's Club Wild Fyre, on the ground floor right next door to the train station, featured topless dancers.

I also read an article about, in the early 90's, the section of the building I live in was used as placement for welfare and AIDS patients.

I am convinced there are some great ghoulish tales.

Lived in the neighborhood 25+ years. A demented ghoul lived on the Henry st side. Stole dogs, brought them upstairs, did terrible things.

There was a guy who sold crack out of the subway station. Won't say his name but it started with "Big." High school girls used to do ANYTHING to get the crack. The St. George was filled with crackheads. Every morning on the sidewalk under the St. George windows, numerous little glass crack vials would be stuck in the cracks.
