The Brooklyn Bridge is a famous landmark in New York City. It is a suspension bridge that spans the East River, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Bridge was the first bridge to use steel for cable wire, and it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its opening in 1883. The bridge has a total length of 6,016 feet and is one of the most iconic and recognizable structures in the city. It is a National Historic Landmark and a New York City designated landmark.
The Brooklyn Paranormal Society has investigated the landmark a handful of times. While on the hunt for spirits around cases involving construction workers, children, and others – we walked the bridge countless times with ghost hunting equipment.
Ghost hunting equipment refers to the tools and devices used by people who engage in the practice of ghost hunting, which is the search for evidence of the existence of ghosts or other paranormal phenomena. Some common ghost hunting equipment used by BKPS includes EMF meters, which are used to detect changes in electromagnetic fields; infrared cameras, which are used to capture images or video in low light conditions; and digital voice recorders, which are used to capture electronic voice phenomena (EVP).
Other popular ghost hunting equipment includes thermal imaging cameras, motion sensors, and air quality monitors. Ghost hunting equipment is often used in conjunction with other techniques, such as conducting interviews with witnesses and conducting research on the history of a location, in order to gather evidence of paranormal activity.
