I have no idea. We're going to talk about the hauntings at the bowery hotel. Okay. Yeah I would I would love to. Okay great. The main point of interest here is the elevators. So we've taken the elevators a few times since we've been here already. How would you describe the elevator visually? So people can envision there's three elevators. I believe they're the size of like phone booths. They're very very very small. All wooden. It really feels like it was, it was retrofitted. Yeah. They feel old and they do feel old and rickety, feels like old elevator cage. Yeah. Without the cage. One of the most common reports of the paranormal at the Barrie Hotel is the elevators. Almost every article or review I found that mentioned ghosts at the hotel mentioned that the elevators are known to go wild especially around one. a.m. The elevators are known to go up and down at will stop at random floors and kind of like generally go haywire around specifically one. a.m. There's also this one Trip Advisor review that somebody wrote that really was sort of haunting to me because it was just this normal like totally normal review of the hotel right? The first it was just like a paragraph 90 of it was just like yeah you know it was good service, whatever, you know X, Y, Z. Then the last sentence just says this hotel I think is actually haunted, question mark, question mark, have you stayed there? Let me know. It was just like this weird thing of like I really think this hotel is haunted though right? So anyway that one that one left me with chills. Another common paranormal encounter at the battery is the woman in white. Multiple guests have reported being greeted by the woman in all white clothing as they enter their room for the first time and I have to admit we were kind of deciding originally if we were going to come together like meat here or come together and I was a little bit afraid at the idea of coming before getting here first and and coming up to the room by myself in case the woman in white was waiting for me. So I'm glad that we got, we arrived together. I would have loved if I got here first. Yeah. And then during this episode, you tell me about the woman in white and I'm like, oh wow, yeah, that happened. It didn't happen. No, it didn't. And you also went out at one point to get some shelter and I was a little afraid but I have to say I haven't had, I have not had an experience yet. I got is not yet one I am, I gotta say my, my spooky meter is nearly in the negatives well, but isn't that always the case for you? I mean, Yeah, but how often are we in a haunted location? That's good. That means if something happens, we'll have to believe it. Yeah. Open minds, open minds. Open hearts. Many believe that the spirit or spirits haunting the bowery have a poltergeist quality, meaning playful in somewhat sinister energy. Poltergeists are known for their ability to move physical objects. If you've seen the movie poltergeist from 1982 you may be familiar with this type of spirit. There's a scene where in the movie all of the kitchen furniture keeps getting rearrange, the chairs get kind of like stacked in funny ways and that's a little bit similar to some of the reports. So the spirits of the battery are known to use the lights to cause chaos flickering them on and off to move around hotel furniture and they especially like to interrupt parties or events. So the battery is used fairly often for, it has like a really gorgeous event space that they sometimes hold awards ceremonies at. You know, it's like a very, or weddings, it's, it's kind of like a very swanky award space or event space. Yeah. If you were a ghost, what kind of ghost do you think you'd be Probably like a really sad angry 1? So like the type, like the grudge. No, God, no, I'm just kidding. I don't know, probably playful. That sounds fun, right, poultry guys can get a little dangerous though, you know, they can take things too far. Sure. Why, what kind of ghost would you be? I feel like I'd be the type of person where some new tenant in an apartment is talking to one of their friends and says like, oh yeah, so you know, I got to meet the other roommate, he's pretty nice. We had like, you know, we had a cup of tea, all this stuff, we hung out and then person number two is like, oh shit, you saw him, that's the ghost. Yeah. Like you'd be, you wouldn't realize that you were dead or it's just like, yeah, or you'd be really casual about it would be real real cash and they wouldn't, yeah, they wouldn't know I was dead. Okay. But then no one would believe them. I like that. I did have I don't want to give away anything about the movie, the others. But when we first got here, I sort of had another's feeling that's all going to say about that. Although I also might be a bit poltergeist, poltergeist. I think absolutely your poltergeist in real life. Yeah. Because like if I change the channel to what I want to watch, I feel like you're making a dig at the fact that I accidentally bought the music channel when we got here. The Pay per view is haunted. Pay per view is haunted. Listen, it was not my fault. Okay. The event spaces also known as a place within the hotel where there's elevated activity and sometimes like the chairs and things when they're set up for events can get rearranged. But there have also been reports from guests that they'd be having a conversation with someone and that that person would disappear mid sentence. That be me. Yeah. That's what it's like texting you and that one might be harder for us obviously to test because we're being covid compliant and we're keeping to our room. But I like the idea of of that happening. I mean there we were, you know, there we would be just having a normal conversation and all of sudden I'm telling you a really cool story. one of my early managers, her and her mom had the ability like they thought that they saw ghosts around them like sort of paranormal style. And I love the idea. I don't, I don't know what her feelings on that were if I don't remember if she was into it or not. But I love the idea of ghosts just sort of being like fully like you don't realize really that they're like, they're so opaque that you're just like, oh shit, that person just like if you were actually talking to a fully opaque not transparent person that you believe to be a real person, right? 13 Ghosts with the Goggles? No, no. Like Yeah. Yeah, exactly. Because there's no effects on those actors at all. They're just normal people. But so you're talking to like if I was talking to who I thought was how I describe them, but go ahead. Why? How would you describe them? I mean sorry. They're I mean they're just not opaque. They're still like completely like chopped up and bloody and have bits poking out of them, but they're not transparent and definitely not transparent. So what I mean, you're talking to somebody that's not transparent, that's not shadowy that you believe to be a human, you're talking to them and then they disappear in the middle of a conversation. Like you would that's that's so upsetting. Like that's not just like, oh I think I saw a ghost that's like holy fucking shit like where the security cameras. Yeah, that's right. That's like that's like something that you you don't recover from. I don't know like picture the picture that you meet someone in the lobby, right? You're talking to that person. Maybe she's a person checking you into your room or whatever. And then as you're looking at her and she's saying something, she just disappears. How would you react in that moment? Um Do I see her fade or is it just like a blinking gone? Whatever. Does it make a difference? It does well give us each reaction. I mean if she fades away then I'd be like what what the fuck? But if she is blinking on you would think she fainted or something. Well maybe it's just like you look around like where'd you go? And then you just think that he had you know some kind of mental lapse. You double check your water. Uh huh. You know maybe you're on drugs.
