This time of year, even a man with a Britannic LA knowledge may find that his savviness of its ghostly past is more like a Wikipedia stub. Discover whether your neighborhood 7-11's really as spooky as its Big Bites, with Creepy LA's Haunted Los Angeles Map.
CLA's map's an interactive compendium of local spectre sites, culled from historical tomes and freaked-out reader contributions. Some popular hauntings:
Exposition Park Rose Garden
This near-USC Park's frequented by a slew of Depression-era ghosts, including a transparent girl in white -- some say that, if you look very closely, you can even make out the Kegs & Eggs '33 on her T-shirt.
El Compadre: 7408 W Sunset Blvd, Hollywood
The victims of a '50s double-homicide linger at this late-night staple -- like El's margaritas, their indignity apparently still burns.
El Pollo Loco: 123 W Holt Ave, Pomona
Reports of "anxious voices and loud arguments" in unattended parts of the fast-food restaurant could be ghosts, or just customers upset about being stuck at an El Pollo Loco in Pomona.
Each map icon also includes directions, so you can visit sites personally and become the savviest paranormalist in LA. [Citation needed]
