Creepy Places/Buildings

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.

H.H. Richardson's Buffalo Psychiatric Hospital. An architectural masterpiece. Very creepy. It's finally going to be put in use again - as a hotel!

Smith and 9th Street Station in Brooklyn. Totally gives me the creeps.

Sometimes I feel creepy when I'm driving through a forest and I get a little nervous that I won't be able to find civilization again.

I always thought the Palace Amusements was creepy looking. That sickly green color, the freaky faces, the lack of windows. After it closed and was abandoned it went from creepy to down right 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 dilapidated Metropolitan Hotel, Asbury Park, NJ

It's gone now, but Asbury Park is still creepy.

Cairo USA

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.

R13/R14, both Cairo, IL and the House on the Rock were featured rather prominently in Neil Gaiman's American Gods... I'm sure the creep factor has something to do with it.

Right out of Stephen King.

How did that town get to be abandoned and I saw a few cars but who could stand living there?

Is the Denver Airport as creepy as it looks?

by Bloody Maryreply 1809/06/2013

r4 You must've been at Smith/Ninth years ago. It was renovated recently.
