Massachusetts Area Paranormal Society


Chelsea Hotel, NYC , John F. Craig House, Cape May, N.J, Mystic Conn.

March 2009               had this to say: The Chelsea, "the hallways are haunted and it feels like someone is either watching you or behind you. You can feel the pain and sadness."  Ground Zero, people reported seeing the victims spirits-workers and rescuers and apparitions of the buildings still standing. Several ghosts have been reported to be crying for help.

Although we didn't have any paranormal experiences while at the Chelsea, the hotel did live up to it's legend. We did get some good pictures of the interior and exterior of this famous hotel. The inside is dotted with pictures of the famous who have lived and died there, as well as some extremely interesting art work.  We actually didn't go to ground Zero to do a paranormal investigation ( you really can't get close enough), or out of morbid curiosity,  we went as Americans to pay our respects with prayers for the victims and heros both living and dead. However we did take one picture with a person standing seemingly in thin air, please see this photo in our gallery. The Dakota ( where John Lennon was shot and killed) is one of Crystals (founding member of M.A.P.S) favorite buildings in NYC for it's gothic architecture as well as her love for the Beatles. The Chelsea is the only other building that intrigued her more. If you decide to stay at the Chelsea it's affordable but don't expect any of the amenities of home or even a vending machine.   

March 2009

                       The Mystic, Connecticut Inn we visited was surrounded by acres of rolling hills and the sheltered coves of Mystic Harbor. It hugs Pequotsepos Cove and is rich with history. We were totally taken by surprise when we discovered we were not alone in our room. The orbs seemed to be enjoying our company and we theirs. All the photos we took did not have orbs, and different cameras were used. It was as though they were playing with us!!   

March 2009,

                         According to, The John F. Craig House in Cape May, N.J. lists " Rooms 4 & 5 inhabited by two spirits. Room 4 ( a.k.a. Susan Craig room ) is haunted by the ghost of an unidentified red-headed girl. Room 5 ( a.k.a. Lucy Johnson room) is haunted by a sewing ghost named Lucy Johnson, who reportly replaced missing buttons on clothing of a guest who stay in the room many years ago."

                        M.A.P.S. team members had this to report, The John F. Craig House, located in Cape May, NJ, was originally owned by the family of a Philadephia sugar baron during the 1800's and 1900's. We ( M.A.P.S) stayed in the Agnes Gertrude room. We left a buttonless shirt and a needle and thread on a chair with the hopes of the event reoccurring. We left the recorder and our cameras on when we left for the evening. Upon returning the recorder and the cameras were off and the shirt was untouched. We felt much energy in the Inn, especially on a stairway leading to the third floor, where we experienced a frigid cold spot and feeling of tingling while ascending and descending the stairway. We did capture an orb in the Lucy Johnson Room, (No. 5) and also one on the old organ in the elegant parlor. We had hoped for a little more success, but were happy with the outcome. We wondered if we could have experienced more if there had not been seances conducted by Medium and Author Craig McManus on the two previous nights. Possibly, the local energies were tired of being hospitable by the time we arrived!! Fabulous Victorian, food, decor, energy and Innkeeprs Barbara and Chip!
