The Dakota Building
The Dakota Building is located in New York City and was the one time home of John Lennon. Lennon was murdered at the entry of the building in 1980 and it seems his ghost doesn’t want to leave. It is said that Yoko (Lennon’s widow) has even seen John’s ghost playing the piano in their apartment. He’s not the only ghost hanging out there either. Reports of an Indian figure watching the entrance, children in the halls and a lady crying have all been noted of the building. There is currently a corner apartment available in the building at a reduced price of $14.5 million, if you’re up for it!
I personally, would not buy a house that is ‘rumored’ to be haunted. I don’t really believe in ghosts, but why take the chance. I would constantly be thinking that every little noise was a ghost. The mind would start playing tricks, even if there wasn’t really anything there you would probably start believing it to be true. I say if they want the homes that badly then let them have it. What do you think? Would you buy a “haunted” house?
