A man who does said he does not believe in anything supernatural has admitted he was creeped out yet excited while exploring a hidden New York mansion.
Dan Pimental is an urban explorer who has made it a hobby to go into historic places that have long been abandoned and has confessed to travelling to over 22 US states in order to investigate forgotten places and post them on Instagram.
In an interview with Newsweek, Dan said: “I really enjoy the photography of the decay, it reminds you that there is a reason for the place being abandoned and it’s likely tragic.”
However, Dan has also found some very bizarre locations in his time exploring, such as finding a creepy room filled with dozens of old-fashioned lamps while exploring a mansion.
Dan entered an Edwardian mansion located in the southeast corner of New York City. After doing some research, he believes the original owner passed away in 1927, and that the mansion has only been lived in one other time before apparently being abandoned.

While the lightroom is very strange, Dan has a few theories on how why someone would have a room simply display several lights on the floor.
Dan said: “It could be that someone else who explored this place gathered them all up and put them there for the picture and then left them.
“Or when they were closing the place up for when the last owners were moving out they may have just put them all in the same room. There was another room that had a ton of mattresses stacked.”
While Dan sometimes gets scared going into forgotten buildings, he is more weary of people finding him than any ghosts that might be lurking about.
He said: “I certainly get spooked, but more so around getting caught by police or running into shady people.
“I don’t terribly buy into supernatural stuff but this one house I went to had this massive symbol on the floor that appeared to be cultish. Turns out it was just from a movie.”
While exploring the mansion, Dan also discovered a beautiful yet creepy attic room which contained a single bed, paintings and a walker, and appears to have once been the bedroom of an elderly person.
Dan has said he found the mansion both a “creepy and exciting place to explore” despite it being like a place from a horror video game.
He said: “I felt like I was in the video game Resident Evil as the first one takes place in an abandoned mansion. I was waiting for a zombie to pop out any minute. But it was an amazing experience and I was thrilled.”
