5 Hudson County Haunted Places You Didn't Know

It's that time of year again! The costumes, candy, haunted houses and decorations have all returned. In celebration of Halloween, let's take a look at some haunted places that you probably didn't know were this close to you:

“Saint Joseph’s Eyes”

Location: 511 Pavonia Avenue, Jersey City, NJ

Coincidentally, I attended grammar school here from fourth to eighth grade. I remember hearing about the legend of “Saint Joseph’s Eyes,” but, of course, I never believed it.

There was one time during my years there when I was hanging out a little late at night with a group of friends/fellow classmates. It was dark and we could see our church’s tower in the distance. I vividly remember my friends began to scream and freak out, claiming that they’ve seen the “glowing eyes.” I, however, did not see anything, at least nothing that I noticed.

The first reported sighting was in 1924, but it did not capture people’s attention until another reporting of two mysterious glowing lights, which resembled two glowing eyes, by two boys in 1954. This reports eventually drew in over 20,000 people, and began much more of a concern when Matthew Guarini, the church sexton, was found dead in the choir loft one morning. He was the last seen trying to find the source of the lights in the tower.

If I can tell you one thing, it’s never, ever roam that school during night time. I did it once, and I swear I will never do anything like that again.

Richard A. Rutkowski Park - Elco Naval Division

Location: Hudson County Park, Bayonne, New Jersey

According to hauntedplaces.org, “The Elco Naval Division was a boat-building factory that was for nearly 400 PT boats for World War II. It is long gone, located where the Richard A. Rutkowski Park currently stands. It is said that there was an accident one day at the factory, and a boat fell off its railings, crushing two men to death. its not the men themselves who are said to now haunt this location, but one of their daughters – a little ghost girl is seen hovering around this area, constantly yelling for her daddy.”

Personally, I go here often with my friends to play Pokemon Go, and after learning this, I may never claim a gym there ever again.

Arthur’s Tavern

Location: 237 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ

Hauntedplaces.org states that, “Three spirits are said to lurk. Employees say they’ve heard footsteps and seen lights come on and off or flicker and door open by themselves, as well as clipboard flying off of a desk, ghostly whispers, and someone’s hair being pulled by something unseen.”

I am never going to this restaurant.

The Brass Rail

Location: 135 Washington St. Hoboken, NJ

Yet another Hoboken horror that has been accounted for by hauntedplaces.org: “Legend has it that in 1904, a bride who was just married tripped at the top of the spiral staircase, broke her neck, and died. The groom shortly thereafter hanged himself in an adjacent room. The bride, groom, and even some of her wedding guests are said to appear in the restaurant, usually late at night. Also reported are phone calls with no one on the line, objects that fall on the ground for no apparent reason, voices, and objects that are missing or misplaced.”

That’s restaurant #2 that I’m never going to.

The Virginia Tavern

Location: 130 Mallory Ave., Jersey City, NJ

A more local scare that has been informed about through hauntedplaces.org: “The Virginia Tavern has more than just the drinking kind of spirits, according to witnesses. They have seen apparitions and beer cans flying off shelves, have been touched by something unseen, and have detected strange odors and cold spots.”

I might as well never go to another restaurant ever again.


REMEMBER: Always stay safe and alert, never going exploring on your own! Have fun and be safe this Halloween!

My College Move Caused My Little Sister To Develop Separation Anxiety

Students moving to college has a ripple effect on families that is too often overlooked

2152

Moving to college is a daunting experience for almost every first-year student. It can be lonely, awkward, and you might miss your family... a lot. It makes you realize that after living with your parents and siblings for eighteen years, the act of uprooting what you have always known and leaving it all behind, is a really strange thing to do. You are no longer surrounded by the core people that have made you who you are today. And while I was dealing with these circumstances, I failed to notice how it takes effect on my sibling's emotions.

While it was obvious that my parents were dealing with the great heartache of their first child leaving the nest, I never considered the distress that it would cause in the lives of my siblings. A whole person is taken out of the original family dynamic, changing the ambiance of their household life entirely. I feel that this is often disregarded, as every event from graduation, to move in day, is about the child who is leaving. But it wasn't until my family began to relay the distressing tendencies of my eleven-year-old sister, did I recognize that she was showing signs of depression. And the guilt hit me instantly.

My mom and dad would each call me on multiple occasions to tell me how often she seemed to not be present or was not eating enough. Whether at the dinner table, in the car, or out shopping on the weekends, they could not seem to lift her spirits. They would also complain that from the time she arrived home from school until bedtime, she remained in her room, on her phone or computer. Although for a preteen this is not unusual, it was shocking to us as she used to spend the majority of after-school time with friends, and later hanging out with the family until it was time for bed.

Finally, I came to the conclusion that her self isolation must stem from the fact that my parents went through a divorce a few years ago, leading to me becoming a motherly figure to her during the nights spent at my dad's house. And she was probably just starting to adjust to that agenda until I left for school in August. But she was not the only one left feeling like she was missing something.

Although my brother doesn't outright show that he was as affected by my departure, he has mentioned to me many times how neither house feels as home-like with me gone. Because of this, he disregards any attempt to better his home relationships and often uses his newly acquired car to drive to his friend's houses where he spends most nights. Although this is his coping mechanism, it leaves my sister home with only one parent or the other, feeling like a newly appointed only child.

The issue with this is that my parents don't know how to give proper attention to a metaphorical only child, nor do they have the time. My siblings and I always had each other to keep company so it was never an issue. Therefore, my sister is left lonely, and slowing receding into mildly depressive tendencies. And no matter how often I encourage her to call me and discuss her feelings, I get the idea that she doesn't believe that anyone will understand, or that she feels as though discussing her feelings becomes a burden to others.

Luckily my family recognized what she was going through after a while, and has begun to take action to help her out of this funk. However, the possible mental illness that I saw her beginning to develop at such an early age is extremely worrisome to me. Not only do we live in a world where mental illnesses are more prominent than ever due to social media, but sometimes the families of those affected are the ones blindly causing it. We need to encourage our parents and siblings to bring about their compassion for each other more often. Because in a fast-paced world like the one we live in, where everything is constantly going, we often forget to look at those around us and make sure that they are feeling valued and heard.
