8. Clinton Court is Reportedly Has One of the Most Haunted Building in New York City

In addition to its secret location, Clinton Court is also considered one of the most haunted buildings in New York. Legend has it that at least three women have jumped to their deaths from the roof and according to the New York Times, long ago, a mutinous sailor known as Old Moor was hanged in the courtyard, his ghost appearing to the wife of the resident family’s coachman; she fell down several flights of stairs, sustaining mortal injuries. The wife joined Old Moor on nightly patrol and the legend of the courtyard grew. For years, the family’s grandchildren impersonated ghosts as a game until an apparition rose up one evening and frightened one of them so badly that she, too, took a tumble down the stairs, thereby adding another ghost to the already crowded courtyard.
