Long Island has a very unique history of spooky encounters and bone-chilling locations that are weaved into our collective heritage. Here at Folklor Long Island, we believe that this particular type of heritage connects us as a community. It is our memories from visiting these spooky locations that reassures us we are brave and encourages us to face our fears. On this page, you will find a collection of products featuring different spooky Long Island landmarks for purchase, as well as a blog with weekly posts focused on various local folklore and how to visit these locations. We want to welcome you to this new site and hope you stay with us while we grow as both a business and an archive for Long Island’s spooky folklore.
