Hudson County railroad tragedy and the Griffith Street haunting

Some decades ago, there was a horrible accident in a local railroad yard. A worker was caught between two cars, impaled on the interlocking metal knuckles. Hideously, the man did not die immediately. He was given a cigarette and his parents were brought to the scene for a final goodbye. When the victim signaled that he was ready, the crew uncoupled the trains, ripping the body into pieces.

Before dawn, in the apartment where the rail worker lived on Griffith Street in the Jersey City Heights (less than half a block down from Kennedy Boulevard) new residents were roused from sleep by the sound of heavy workboots walking through the rooms and to the door. The tormented spirit repeats that final day of life.
