grisly guides : the new york grimpendium

Rolling Hills Asylum, East Bethany, via JW Ocker's OTIS: Odd Things I've Seen
Death - and the boundaries of the five boroughs - holds no terrors for JW Ocker, who follows up his New England Grimpendium with The New York Grimpendium: A Guide To Macabre And Ghastly Sites In New York State. Can we say he knows where the bodies are buried? Oh, go on, lets have some fun with this, because Ocker always does. Here's the dirt on ghoulish sites and stories, both sung and unsung, delivered in thoroughly researched but wry style for the couch-potato and real traveller alike. Revel in the abandoned asylums (pictured), murder sites, film locations (yes, Ghostbusters does feature) and tales of monsters in lakes, Sleepy Hollow, shrunken heads or Rod Serling - if you dare.
