    The Frightful Side of Central Park, New York.

    The Frightful Side of Central Park, New York.

    Central Park is of the most beautiful places in New York. It was designed as a rare green haven amongst the steel and concrete bustle of the city.

    Surely if there was any place to relax in the Big Apple...it'd be here.

    Well, not so fast, because you and I are about to take a night stroll, through 'The Frightful Side of Central Park'.

    TRIGGER WARNING: This episode includes accounts of murder, suicide and a disturbing story of a peeping Tom.

So good, so creepy

If you want a quick creepy story to make your day more interesting, you’re in the right place. If you want nightmares, you’re probably in the right place too.

Not your average creepy podcast

I love how these stories are not the same as the ones you find in other true supernatural type pods. I’ve never heard of most of these stories, and I listen to/read a lot of them. Keep up the good work!

Losing sleep

Well it’s working, couldn’t sleep last night after listening!
