The Kreischer House on Charleston, Staten Island has an interesting story behind it. The historic home, was constructed by German brick-maker Balthasar Kreischer in 1885. This two-storied Late Victorian style mansion is quite irregularly shaped with chimneys and turret protruding from the main structure. The 14 room mansion was converted into a restaurant in 1996. However, it is more well known for being the scene of many tragic killings and is supposedly haunted.
