NEW YORK – Something strange going on in your neighborhood?
You may want to give Brooklyn Ghost Investigations a call.
For $20 an hour, the group of self-proclaimed paranormal investigators offers to go to your house to help chase away whatever goes bump in the night.
"When I was 10 years old, I started to see things — spirits and ghosts," said Sal Cicconi, 27, who formed the group with two other Brooklynites.
The group, which claims to have honed its spooky craft by watching such TV shows as "Ghost Hunters" and "Paranormal State," has one client: a man who said he saw two apparitions in his apartment.
Cicconi and another member of the group, Sergio Ocasio, 20, went to the man's house and waited until 3 a.m. to catch a glimpse of the ghosts.
"I caught something on tape," Cicconi said. "It looked like two lights moving around, like the spirits were playing with each other."
He said they used a homemade Ouija board — often used in seances to supposedly talk to the dead (or undead) — to coax the bogeymen to leave. But it didn't work.
"Sometimes, spirits are afraid to talk or to show themselves to us," Cicconi explained.
Indeed, a similar investigation recently took place in a Middleboro, Mass., town hall, where workers claim to have heard strange sounds and even felt odd things.
