Abandoned, haunted places in or around LA?

Anyone know any good abandoned, creepy places in or around LA that may be haunted?

I'm talking about forgotten hospitals, convalescent homes, psychiatric wards, prisons, cemeteries, etc...

I don't mean a haunted house where you pay a couple bucks to go in and people with funny costumes on go boo in your face. Nope, I mean real deserted, neglected places that give you the creeps and willies--especially at night.

Linda Vista Hospital

610 S St Louis St
Los Angeles, CA 90023

But you really don't want to mess with the unknown. If you do, just try to tell them you come in peace. I've heard stories where bad things happen.

Ghosts? I think it's more important we find the tooth fairy or the easter bunny first. Where are your priorities?

Im just going to relay this story about Linda Vista Hospital.A security guard who has worked there for years (may still work there) told me when I asked if anything strange had ever happened to him there told me "no" but after some prodding he admited that on two different occasions over a period of years while making his rounds at night inside the hospital that he felt a hand grab his hand as if it where a child reaching up to grab your hand.Both times he said he just kept doing his rounds as if he didnt feel anything and nothing else occured.

Why would he say no first? Is he worried the kid might grab his nuts if he told anyone?

I think because it was at a movie shoot and the security guard for the studio was supposed to do a walk through the hospital as well and he was already acting like he didnt want to.

not sure about it being haunted, and it's definitely not abandoned but Evergreen Cemetery in Boyle heights has a very creepy look to it. it is very unkempt and is full of old, crooked headstones.

You have to open up your conscious to ghosts, its like a medium talking to the dead. If you're skeptical or doubt that stuff, you're likely to never perceive anything. Believe me its nothing you want to get into if you want peace of mind. I've heard of people being haunted wherever they went afterwards. I did ghost haunting and didn't believe at first, but I started believing experiences other people had and seeked it out. I heard babies crying/whimpering, hissing/growling noises. I had to say enoughs enough and never wanted to have anything else to do with it again. Took me 3 months before all fears left me. I recommend you don't open up to it, not even for fun. The stuff you hear or see is from another dimension, a spiritual realm that occasionally your 5 senses can detect.

Anybody been to Gravity Hill? I hear about this place a lot from friends and acquaintances. And it seems to be really haunted.

Gravity Hill is supposed to be an optical illusion, if I am not mistaken.

ive heard a (bleep) ton of stories about Blackstar Canyon down in the OC near Irvine. I was thinking of going down there with my buddies when i used to go to college at UCI, but reading up on the stories gave me the creeps; i didnt want to risk whatever would or could happen. I know a couple of friends went there, but i think they turned around cause the road was closed...

I do the same at movies. You have to willingly suspend disbelief to maximize entertainment value, and I suspect amateur ghost hunters are doing just that. New England is full of haunted sites, but I wouldn't bother even if a friend organized a trip out of curiosity. I'd pretty much ruin it for him, as I know I would refuse suspend disbelief. I'm a pain in the ass, if you give me opportunity to run roughshod over BS like a haunting, I'll seize it.
