Big cemeteries are common in Staten Island. Others just have strange graves, but all give off the same strange feeling in the dark. A nice cemetery is the Ocean View cemetery out in Eltingville.

At night, its always a place were you think that there is something following you or you see a shadow out of the corner of your eye. When its light out, its a field with head stones, but at night it changes drastically. It turns from a field with headstones to one of the scariest places you’d know. Why does our mind make that change?
