Two hours away from the Big Apple, as the thunderbird flies, is a quaint bed and breakfast best known for having more ghosts than guests. Most businesses advertise themselves as being haunted to scare up a few extra bucks, but owner Sal Nicosia delivers the goods without having to wear a sheet. After all, there are 33 permanent residents at the Shanley and tons of photographical and EVP evidence if you’re inclined to check their site.
Dig the joint’s pages on TripAdvisor and Yelp showcasing many spooktacular reviews from satisfied customers, and the occasional paid shill. Last January, Stephen Barcelo sat down with Sal to discuss about the Shanley’s feline phantom. As you’ll see, kitty’s been caught on camera.
