There’s a Place on Long Island That may be More Haunted than the Amityville Horror House

Written by Taylor Krauss, Mar. 2015


Back in November of 1974, a couple and four of their children were murdered by their oldest son. The entire family was shot while they were asleep in their beds.

This was in Amityville, New York, a little town on Long Island.

Soon after, the Lutz family moved into the home…to an unwelcome surprise: they believed the house to be haunted. They said to have experienced things such as oozing walls, apparitions, cold spots and strange odors. It was the house that inspired the Amityville Horror, one of the most iconic horror films of all time.

As terrifying as that sounds, there is a place not far away- about 10 miles- in Melville, New York, that is said to be haunted by some incredibly active spirits.

Sweet Hollow Road

Sweet Hollow Road, running parallel to Mount Misery Road, has been subject to paranormal investigations, and plenty of people going to check it out themselves.

The road itself has the feeling of something truly terrifying. No matter what time of year you drive down Sweet Hollow Road, it always seems to feel like a chilly night in the middle of the fall. There are no streetlights, and it is a long, winding, one-lane road once you cross under the overpass.

One story is of the asylum in the woods off of Mount Misery.

A small asylum was built in the woods back where the road ends, and one of the patients, Mary, supposedly set it on fire, essentially killing almost everyone in the building. Rumor has it that you can still hear the screaming patients from the fire. Even creepier: apparently they rebuilt the asylum…and it burnt down a second time. The second fire was never figured out.

Another story is of a police officer. Supposedly if you’re pulled over on Sweet Hollow Road, take a look at the back of the officer’s head as he walks away…there won’t be anything there!

It is said that a woman driving on the overpass above Sweet Hollow (see picture above) got into a head-on collision, and now if you flash your lights where her car crashed, you will see a shadow sit up. Is it a trick of the eyes, or is it a spirit making herself known…?

There are tons of other legends that are related to Sweet Hollow Road, and each story has plenty of variations. However, each story has something in common- many Long Islanders have experienced the same things. Many have seen a “hellhound” with glowing red eyes that means imminent death, as well, so look out for that one…

Ghosts Aren’t Just For Houses:Top 5 Most Haunted Roads


Apparently some ghosts have taken their shows to the road… and this list will tell you just which roads to avoid if you don’t want to hear anything go bump in the night on your next drive.

haunted tunnel

First up, Belchen Tunnel, Switzerland. It looks creepy enough, doesn’t it? It gets better… or worse. Apparently, this Swiss road is haunted by an old lady. One report shows that two women actually claimed to pick the old lady up, and were told by the old lady that “something dreadful was going to happen.” Then, with her message apparently delivered, she disappeared.

haunted road

Not scary enough? Let’s try Stocksbridge Road, also known as the “Killer Road.” Located in the United Kingdom, there have been numerous ghost sightings reported… and of more than one ghost, as well. There’s the ghost of a monk who likes to show up on the bridge on Stocksbridge Road. And then there are the ghost children (aren’t those always the scariest?). Some of the sightings of these ghost children actually come from security guards, who said they saw children playing on the road late one night… but the kids disappeared before the guards could reach them. Workmen often reported children singing in the night, as well.

hwy 666


But let’s bring it a little closer to home with Highway 666 in the United States. Here there have been reports of speeding ghost cars — including a flaming, demonic semi-truck that reportedly seems to drive directly at spooked travelers — as well as packs of devil dogs. Also, people tend to disappear from this stretch of road, losing their sense of time and sometimes not being found until days later. The name was changed from Highway 666 to 491, and, strangely enough, accidents did decrease… but it is still known as America’s “Highway to H*ll.”

haunted road hong kong

Then there is Tuen Mun Road, located in Hong Kong. There is a disproportionately high number of car accidents on this road, and people there blame the local ghosts. Apparently, these ghosts will appear suddenly, right in front of a driver, forcing the driver to swerve and inevitably crash. Furthermore, just to guarantee there is never a shortage, they say that each new car accident fatality results in a new ghost haunting the road.

old boy bridge

But if you are looking for a little more personal interaction from your ghostly encounters, try Clinton Road, in New Jersey, at the Old Boy Bridge. If you toss in a coin, the ghost of a boy who drowned there will toss it back up to you. And if that isn’t creepy enough, there have also been sightings of UFOs, mutated circus animals, and mysterious glowing eyes.
