MIDTOWN (PIX11)—Thousands of people pass through Grand Central Station every day but did you know one area is haunted? That's what the paranormal experts say.
"In 1923, it was the private office and saloon of a financial tycoon named John Campbell," current owner Marc Grossich explained to PIX 11 News.
Nearly a century later, the swanky space is solely for spirits of the liquid sort. The Campbell Apartment is named after its original owner. He died of natural causes but bar employees and customers swear there are restless spirits there.
"We had a woman who went into the bathroom behind you. A number of customers saw her. She went into bathroom, was in there an extended period of time. She didn't come out when we knocked. So, we got a locksmith to open the door. Then, there was no one inside," said Grossich.
Even spookier, is the testimony of psychic Jasmine Hirst. She says she can see, hear and feel the other side.
"When I first came in, the energy was strongest up on the balcony and I felt really sick and got a headache. I saw a man with a black mustache and a black suit who is actually still up there," Hirst told PIX 11 during an interview earlier this week, adding, "He's looking at us right now. He's on the balcony, just behind that table. He's very aware that we are all kind of here for him."
He is not John Campbell - Campbell never had a mustache. To dig deeper, Grossich contacted EPIC Paranormal of Staten Island to come in and set up shop for a paranormal investigation.
Investigator Arty Matoes and his crew say they captured ghost voices on their recorders, otherwise known as EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomenon).
"They asked is this John Campbell and you hear a very disgruntled male voice say 'No'.
The paranormal experts did their job by confirming spooky suspicions.
As for what the current owner thinks of spirits staying behind at his bar?
"I think it is great, you know, spirits with spirits, right?" laughed Grossich.
So, the next time, you're running through Grand Central Station, take some time and check out The Campbell Apartment.
We hear they are naming a drink after the haunted happenings.
