Riverdale is Haunted by Ghosts

More and more people are talking about ghost sightings throughout Riverdale, Kingsbridge, Spuyten Duyvil (and to an extent, University Heights and South Yonkers). Very recently, a few people I've known for years (one of them a retired school principal) were standing on broadway by 234th Street (by the Staples Mall) when they spotted an elderly woman walking near them. As they observed her closer, they realized that they knew her..... and that she had also passed away a few years ago. My friends just stared at her in quiet disbelief as she smiled as she passed by.... but of course went home and told everyone they knew.
My neighbor across the street was on Johnson Avenue at 235th the other night and spotted his deceased neighbor rounding the corner (He had passed late last year)...... there was no mistaking his identity.
There have been countless sightings of the dead up here in the last few years, yet they seem to be increasing lately. My question: Why are the dead walking the streets of the Northwest Bronx?
If anyone has any personal accounts of ghost sightings, please post them on this page. Many residents are frightened by this increase in spiritul actvity, and they want to know why...... many people are scared now to go out at night, or in or near our local parks when the un sets.

It's funny mention this. A lot of people up here on 259th Street occasionally spot "Elizabeth", a long dead woman who walks the streets, scaring people out of their wits. You can't miss her, she's very pale and wears a burial shroud. And yes, Riverdale, Kingsbridge, and the Van Cortlandt area are haunted by the dead.

I recently lived on Mosholu Avenue near Broadway; we would always see the spirit of an old man walk along Broadway, and all over North Riverdale. A friend of mine says that the ghost of an old woman walks o Broadway, Post Road, and all around the Manhattan College area. Very scary.

This is true. More than once, I've encountered strange things in Riverdale. My sisers av seen ghostly figures in Woodlawn, Riverdale, and Kingsbride. I guess the Northwest Bronx is becoming haunted!!!!

Riverdale is definitely haunted! A few years back, we ran into one on 246th street and Post Road...... ghost of an old woman. I never walk there at night alone anymore.

I live in Kingsbridge. I see stuff all the time. My house is haunted and the activity has increased in the last few years. I believe this entire area especially Spuyten Duyvil had some Civil War activity. I've had to do multiple spiritual cleansings of my house and property. I'm so used to it by now quiet homes unnerve me...lol.
