“The craziest stories are always the ones that customers tell me on my tours,” Janes said. “These private, domestic ghost stories are often extremely intense, and quite emotional.” One Upper West Side woman told Janes about waking up in the middle of the night to see her ex-boyfriend sitting at the foot of her bed. He’d committed suicide in her room the week before, shooting himself with her own gun. Nina Ruggiero, who lives in StuyTown, says that when she was little she’d wake up and see ghosts every so often, but after living in StuyTown for three years, she hadn’t experienced the paranormal -- until recently. “I woke up and saw this blonde girl, it's never someone I know, she seemed to be around my age though, in her 20s. She was wearing a black skirt and black top and was just hovering in my bedroom by my door, looking down at the floor.” Ruggiero notes the ghost was “an extra-stubborn one and wouldn't disappear, so I slept with all the lights on.”
