Haunted houses are always fun to visit, and if you are not the weak-hearted one and love excitement and unpredictable eeriness, then there is no way that you can miss out on the Amityville Horror House, located in Long Island, New York. Earlier deserted, the haunted house today is one of the most famous tourist attractions of New York, and is also a part of the backdrop of a lot of films and books.
The house is located at 112 Ocean Ave, Amityville in New York and has an interesting story behind it. The place is so popular that if you take a cab to the location, then the cab driver itself will brief you on the story about the haunted house on your drive. Most tourists visit the place in the day time, while some brave ones like to enjoy the adventure during night.
There as such no clear theory behind what exactly is the correct story behind the house. However, people of New York say that somewhere in 1974, a man named Ronald DeFeo had killed all his family members inside the house with a rifle. His family consisted of his parents and four siblings, and when the police caught hold of him, he said that he was constantly hearing some voices inside his head, which had asked him to do the brutal act.
After Ronald’s arrest, the house was put on sale, and the Lutz family moved in. However, the family had a very bad experience inside their new residence with paranormal activities happening at all times of the day, and just after 28 days, they left the house in the middle of the night.
The family claimed that they had experiences of phone calls being interrupted with strange noises, and doors being pulled off their hinges. Most people said that maybe the family was exaggerating the incidents that had happened. To add to the controversy, the family that moved in after the Lutz family faced no such problems.
Therefore, whether the house was actually haunted or not still remains unknown. But today, it is one of the most famous tourist attractions of New York, and must visit for all.
