Haunted Connecticut

Pleasure Beach is the Bridgeport portion of a Connecticut barrier beach that extends 2-1/2 miles westerly from Point No Point (the portion in the adjoining town of Stratford is known as Long Beach). The area is Connecticut's largest and most recent ghost town (as shown here on a national ghost town registry) and abandoned recently in the late 1990s after arsonists torched the bridge connecting it to main land. It is surrounded on three sides by water (Lewis Gut to the north, Bridgeport Harbor to the west, and Long Island Sound to the south).
