Steeped in history and legends, New York is filled with stories of the forgotten, eerie and the weird that influence us everyday.

Lite 98.7's Eric Meier has teamed up with Folklorist P.W. Creighton to explore the haunts and legends of New York. Through their travels into the dark and often overlooked spaces they will bring these historic sites back to life and make some unexpected discoveries along the way.

In this episode Phil guides the explorers to a former woolen mill in the heart of Utica to learn the dark history and chilling stories that persist to this day.

Originally founded in 1847, the Utica Globe Mill was constructed during the height of Utica's industrial growth and in 1855 it became the Utica Woolen Mills where it became a stable of Utica's industry until 1871.

Today, the Utica Globe Mill is known as The Shoppes At The Finishline and while the industrial history may have been left behind it is still present not only in the architecture but the haunting activity that continues today.

Sometimes people who climb to the third floor claim to feel an unseen force keeping them from moving forward. During an investigation with a local group and a news station the reporter saw a shadow that looked like the little boy and was scratched at the same moment. Many investigations of the Mill have led to investigators having countless experiences and even capturing disembodied voices.
