WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall On The Story

It just sold for a $9.25 million which is significantly less than the original asking price of nearly $20 million.

That could be because, as legend has it, the house is haunted.

Faucets supposedly turn on when no one is around and lights suddenly shut off then turn back on.

Antiques dealer Barton Kaplan was the owner of the mansion.

He died in 2002 and, for years now, his partner has made the claims of the hauntings in the house.

In fact that man, Sam Wagner, is currently writing a ghostly screenplay about the mansion.

Middle Lane is where financier Ted Ammon was murdered in 2001 by Daniel Pelosi his estranged wife’s boyfriend.

Pelosi was convicted of second-degree murder in 2004. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Ammon’s ex-wife died of breast cancer in 2003.
