Residents of Lee Ave in Yonkers, New York claim their homes are frequently visited by violent, aggressive spirits who torment their inhabitants. Reports of paranormal activity range from encountering malevolent spirits, to hearing disembodied voices, to having objects thrown across the room by an unseen entity. Former residents have also reported feeling as if they were being possessed by a demonic entity, and several attempts to exorcise the houses have been attempted over the years.
