New Jersey is known for many things, but ghosts aren't on the top of the
list. We've found a place you can go to enjoy the company of a few
spirits. This is not the Jersey shore.
The Flanders Hotel
719 11th Street, Ocean City, New Jersey
Hotel, an Ocean City
landmark, is centrally located on the famous Ocean City boardwalk and
features rooms with ocean front, ocean side, bay, and city views. If
also offers views of their resident ghost, The
Lady in White! The
Lady in White, whose real
name was Emily is
known to be a happy ghost who appears and disappears into walls, plays
with door locks, unscrews light bulbs, and sings happily in its halls.
As recent as 2002, workers and guests have reported swinging doors,
locking doors, unscrewed chandelier light bulbs, and a the train of a
white gown disappearing around the corner of a corridor as evidence that
Emily still has fun haunting the Flanders Hotel.
A portrait of Emily
painted by artist Tony Troy based on stories and descriptions given to
him by workers and guests of the hotel is featured on the second floor.
The long brown-haired young woman is featured by a piano wearing a long
white dress and no shoes.
Her story appears
near her portrait. Over recent years, The
Lady in White has often
been seen wandering through the Flanders by both staff members and
guests. She was once seen in the basement in the early hours of July 7,
1999. She was described as being in her early twenties with long brown
hair. Two earlier sightings were of a similar young woman standing near
the grand piano.
The sightings before
that were mostly confined to The
Lady in White walking
barefoot through the Hall of Mirrors. On many other occasions the
laughter of a young woman has been heard throughout the building.
