The Newtown Pentacle

Altissima quaeque flumina minimo sono labi

Getting ahead of the curve

Haunted? I’m desirous to collect up a series of Newtown Ghost stories for Halloween. A blood curdling tale of “the white lady” of East Astoria is already in the works, which I acquired from amongst the stout Croatians who populate this part of the Newtown Pentacle.

Got anything for Old Mitch?

Stories will be posted during the weeks preceeding Halloween, and attributed however you want me to. Any experiences with the demon that chases trespassers on the Hellgate bridge during adolescent rites of passage? Any encounters with the shades of the General Slocum disaster? Ever meet a ghoul in Greenpoint?

Send your stories to this email.

(what does this have to do with history? Not much, but ghost stories are Folklore, and add texture to our Newtown story)
