A few hours ago I had just come back from playing my weekly basketball game (I’m part of the South Asian Basketball League – Basketballers team). I was with some close friends of mine, MoSin, Ohmz, Kingheer, Brighton Beach Waqas and TallDarknKhansome. We randomly started to talk about the Kings Park Psychiatric Center on Long Island. MoSin and TallDarknKhansome had already been there with Shakin Shadhili (formerly known as Contemplating Chishti) and N Veed. They boasted of how scary it was and they did research online and read about how the place was haunted and infested with drug addicts, homeless people and other weird stories…
The picture to the left is real. Now imagine that place at night. With no lights. Pitch black. So dark that my friend’s couldn’t see me unless I smiled. As we talked about it in the car we decided to go check it out since me, Ohmz, Kingheer and Brighton Beach Waqas never went. We started the 15 minuted drive towards Kings Park.
Upon entering the area we were shocked and and surprised of how dark it was. The only lit area was from the cars’ headlights. We then came upon the side of the road and turned into this blocked off entrance.
The large dark building appeared in front of us with its gigantic size and hundreds of windows. Not a single light was shining in the building. That sight frightened us a little bit but we pursued more into the area. We kept driving and stopping and looking at the many buildings surrounding the area. They were all abandoned. We then came up on an area with lights. It was a strangely located bar that was open. We drove past it and continued to be amazed at the mysterious buildings. We started to dare each other to go outside and walk around. No one left the car. We all were scared. We then started to drive back, but Waqas, Kingheer and myself decided let’s man up and take a walk around the buildings. We told the rest of the crew so we turned around and parked in the parking lot of the bar. We started to walk towards the buildings along this sidewalk. We were loud. Some of us were screaming like idiots, while others were trying to scare each other. We felt safe, until MoSin spotted a weird reflector in the bushes randomly placed. At first he didn’t think of anything. He then saw it move. He said what was that. Kingheer then said it’s nothing probably.
It started to move closer to MoSin. “Who are you?”
“Who are you?”
“It’s a dog!” screamed TallDarknKhansome. Ohmz said “A dog!?”
At this point, I was at the front of everyone. The shadowy figure was coming from behind where MoSin was. I turned around and looked at dark shadowy figure that looked to what appeared to be a black dog running towards us from behind. All I was thinking was “Audhobillahiminashaytanirajeem” and I started to run like crazy, then I heard this:
“POLICE! Stop!” MoSin yelled “It’s only a flashlight! It’s only a flashlight!” He said that to calm everyone down, because he was the only one that had seen the gun pulled out and aimed at him and us all. We all stopped turned around and saw the cop. We put our hands up and began to come together. The cop rounded us up with our hands up in the air. He asked for IDs. We gave it to him. Then we explained to him we’re students from SBU and we came to check out the place because of what we heard. He then became calm and started to talk about the psych ward and its history. He became our tour guide after that. He basically told us don’t come here at night, just go during the day. We’ll probably check it out during the day next time.
That was probably one of the most scariest moments in my life. We were literally at gun point.
After that we drove to Dunkin Donuts and discussed how fun it was. It’s only fun after it happens not during. Alhamdulillah no one got hurt. Alhamdulillah we didn’t end up in jail overnight. Alhamdulillah!
