Ghost stories from New York State's famous island have never been so creepy, fun, and full of mystery!

Long Island's haunted history and local legends come to life--even when the main players are dead. Do ghosts lurk in the famed OHEKA Castle? Do the spies of the American Revolution's Culper Ring still haunt Setauket? Are the colonists at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration historians--or ghosts? Dive into this spooky chapter book for suspenseful tales of bumps in the night, paranormal investigations, and the unexplained; just be sure to keep the light on.
