Abraham Lincoln High School ~ late at night, toilet paper can be heard unraveling in the girl's bathroom by the main office. also, in the girl's bathroom by the band room, feet can be seen in the stall when no one else is there and someone whispering "hi". And the room by the cafeteria is locked and no one is allowed in there because a girl was raped and murdered in that room.
in the former eating area as well as the cell blocks are heard when
no one else is around. Footsteps and the sounds of cell doors opening
and closing also echo throughout the corridors. People have reported
feeling "cold spots" in certain areas and the feeling that
they are not alone, even when they are.

driving on the lower deck at night towards Oakland direction, drivers
would hear knocking on the windows. Some saying that they saw a headless

Cameron House ~ Located on Sacramento St. in Chinatown, San Francisco. Once owned by Lady Cameron, the basement of the house was a refuge for Chinese immigrant from lives of prostitution and slavery, among the obvious discrimination and hell that was once Chinatown. She sealed the doors in the basement to protect the immigrants from inspections by the police. If she can't open the doors, they can't inspect and then arrest and possibly kill the rooms of people. However, the people were able to come in and out through a secret passageway. Apparently, rumors spread about her philanthropy and some people came and burned down the house. Everyone in the rooms died. Now, the restored Cameron House (turned church) sends chills up spines. The basement doors are still sealed, but every door contains a red charm and a gold charm to seal in the spirits, as well. Furthermore, the pipes that run along the ceiling run to the end of the hall forming an "X" over a door with the script: "do not enter." Photographs taken in the house have shown white figures in the background. Supposedly, these photos are nonchalantly mingled in with normal ones and kept in photo albums at the site. This possibly happened around the 1930's or so. Now the Cameron House is a service organization serving low income, Asian immigrants, youth and families in San Francisco.

Golden Gate Park. People will get pulled over and get speeding tickets

you, you need to go outside of the park first before you pull over.
And once you do, the ghost cop will disappear.
