What are the creepy buildings or places in your city or town?
Places that you've been that have made you feel uneasy or places that you wouldn't dare go to.
In LA, the central library and the Cecil Hotel frighten me. Turnbull Canyon is frightening in Whittier.
I wouldn't go to Untermyer Park in Yonkers, and the Denver airport seems scary.
r6, it's demolished now. Torn down right after it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
America doesn't preserve its past. Americans really don't care much about history. $$$
Ariel Castro's house
R7 Im all for historic preservation, if the building has some significant or exceptional quality to it. The Palace did not. It was basically a gussied up cement block warehouse.
The Dakota was made creepy by "Rosemary's Baby" and the Lennon murder but I walked by the actual buildings that inspired Levin for "Rosemary": The Wyoming apartments at 55th and Seventh just seem spookier, despite being right in Midtown.
The House on the Rock near Spring Green, Wisconsin. When the eccentric guy who developed this place was alive, it was pretty fantastic, I went there as a kid in the 80s. He died years ago, and the place has struggled. If you're there on a busy day,it's not too creepy. I went up on a weekday last summer with 2 friends and the place was a ghost town. Creepiest parts: The world's largest merry go round (creepy because of all the angel mannequins hanging from the ceiling), the animatronic Orchestra, or the life-size, incredibly life-like great blue whale sculpture, which you have to view by walking a narrow catwalk.
