Welcome to Long Island Paranormal Investigators!
(Not affiliated with any other Long Island group)
LIPI was founded in the spring of 2003 by Michael Cardinuto and Robert Levine. The group began as the result of exploring an old hospital building on Long Island. During the exploration they heard a loud banging noise in the building which could not be explained. Later while watched the video of the exploration they heard a loud banging that could not be explained. They immediately became interested!
The group began researching the internet to find many urban legends and ghost stories on Long Island. Soon afterwards we went on our first official investigation to Sweet Hollow Road in Huntington. LIPI continues to investigate ghost stories and urban legends as well as receiving numerous requests to conduct private investigations on Long Island, in New York City, New York State and surrounding areas.
Our goals are to:
Investigate the urban legends and ghost stories on Long Island to see if the are really haunted or not.
Helping people understand and cope with paranormal activity by performing private investigations of homes and locations where paranormal activity has been observed.
While performing investigations we use a scientific approach of “best practices” for our research. Some of the equipment we use on investigations includes cameras, EMF meters, temperature gauges, Geiger counters, digital audio and video etc. We investigate a suspected haunted site for a minimum of 10 hours (circumstances permitting) total to determine whether or not the site is in fact haunted. For each investigation the group completes a field report to keep track of how many times we’ve been on an investigation and keep track of all of our readings. When all of the field reports are complete we compile all of the data into one final report of the investigation site to determine if it is haunted or not.
