Devil's Tree, New Jersey - Why So Evil?
Click here to read the story:
Hey guys, let's take a look at the Devil's tree in Bernards Township, New Jersey. This oak tree is said to be more than 250 years old and is considered pure evil. A closer look shows that many people have tried to cut it down and it is now protected with a chain link fence. How does a tree... get so much attention? Locals tell you that anyone who disrespects this tree by spitting, peeing on it or simply taunting it will have serious consequences. You spit on this tree, you will get a severe case of strep throat. One guy peed on it and hit a deer while driving back. Another guy mocked the tree and had a nose bleed right away. Anyone who touches the tree and tries to eat at a restaurant on the same day will find that his hands have turned black. What makes this tree so evil? Because it has 2 very real stories behind it.
The first story is that this township was the headquarters of Ku Klux Klan in New Jersey. After the defeat in the Civil War, many southern war veterans moved to this part of the state. In fact there were so many of them in this area that there is a place nearby called Rebel Hill. But the most active period of the KKK began right after the movie The Birth of a nation in 1915. It is a fact that they lynched numerous black people on this tree. Ironically, these lynchings were led by a Reverend called Carl Mellberg of the Basking Ridge Methodist Church. You can see that this tree must have been a very convenient place because it is far away from any police station or big cities back then. The KKK often lynched just any black person they could find on this tree simply to show their power. This was not limited to just black men but they also hung black women and children. This is one big reason why locals believe that there are so many trapped souls in this tree and people who put up their ears on the trunk claim that you can hear screaming and begging from inside the tree. Guys who drive by during midnight have also reported seeing hanging bodies swaying from the branches.
The second story which is also true is that a farmer who owned a large piece of land in this area, went bankrupt during the great depression. This was a time when farmers began burning corn rather than coal in their stoves because corn was cheaper. Unable to feed his wife and kids, this farmer brought them here on a nice day for a picnic, killed them all and then hung himself on the tree.
Now, with so many homicides and suicide, this tree has a lot of negative energy. Devil worshipers use this energy till date to jinx their enemies. They come here after midnight and place weird objects like this one in the tree. They believe that the trapped souls will transfer their energy on the object if it is placed here for a full lunar cycle. This strange wooden thing was most probably placed by a devil worshipper. He or she would later take this and bury it under the enemy's yard which will bring misfortune to him.
If you visit the tree after dark, you will be followed by a big black truck while driving back. This story seems to have many eyewitness accounts. The truck will follow you up until a certain point and after the road bends, you won't see it. Some say this makes sense because there is a sign that says park closed 1/2 hours after sunset, violators will be prosecuted and the park ranger could be driving the black truck. Others say that the sign was only put up recently but this has been happening for many years. Is it possible that there is a sentinel guarding the devil's tree?
Also, right below the devil's tree is a boulder called the heat rock or the devil's rock. It is true that it is unusually warmer than the rest of the area, even during winter. Is it because there is some hidden natural phenomena like hot springs underneath or because of paranormal activity?
A while ago, I posted a video about the Devil's Tree in Florida which has an even better story attached to it, but this tree has become so notorious that they are making a movie about it now. I hope you liked this video, I am Praveen Mohan. Thanks a lot for watching, don't forget to subscribe and I'll talk to you soon.

Driving Downtown - City Of Newark 4K - New Jersey USA
Driving Downtown Streets - Market Street - Newark New Jersey USA - Episode 32.
Starting Point: . Route: .
Newark is the largest city (by population) in the U.S. state of New Jersey, and the county seat of Essex County. One of the nation's major air, shipping, and rail hubs, the city had a population of 277,140 in 2010.
Much of the city's retail and commercial developments are centered on Broad Street (the city's widest north/south boulevard, which once carried streetcars headed for Elizabeth and points south) and Market Street. The intersection of the two streets, known as Four Corners is widely considered to be one of the busiest in the state and at one time was considered the busiest in the country.
Both Broad Street and Market Street are a bustle of activity crowded with numerous shops. Broad Street has many street vendors as well. At night however the streets are vacant and shops are closed. The City of Newark is committed to turning downtown into a 24-hour city, and the downtown area is slowly beginning to develop a 24-hour presence. The former Hahne's and Lefcourt buildings are going to be converted into condominiums beginning in 2005.[needs update] Rutgers–Newark has built a six hundred bed dorm on Central Avenue. An old office building on Clinton Street has already successfully been converted to luxury lofts. Additionally, 1180 Raymond across from Military Park - Newark's second tallest building - completed a $150 million conversion to luxury apartments in 2006.
Located in the heart of New Jersey's Gateway Region, Newark is the second-largest city in the New York metropolitan area, approximately 8 miles (13 km) west of Manhattan. Port Newark, the major container shipping terminal in the Port of New York and New Jersey, is the largest on the East Coast. Newark Liberty International Airport was the first municipal commercial airport in the United States, and today is one of its busiest.
Newark is headquarters to numerous corporations, such as Prudential Financial, Audible.com, Panasonic Corporation of North America and PSEG. It is also home to several universities, such as Rutgers–Newark (including the law school and medical school), the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Seton Hall University's Law School. Among others, its cultural and sports venues include the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the Prudential Center, and the Bears & Eagles Riverfront Baseball Stadium.
Newark is divided into five political wards, and contains neighborhoods ranging in character from bustling urban districts to quiet suburban enclaves. Newark's Branch Brook Park is the oldest county park in the United States and is home to the nation's largest collection of cherry blossom trees, numbering over 5,000.
More than 100,000 people commute to Newark each workday, making it the state's largest employment center with many white-collar jobs in insurance, finance, import-export, health-care, and government. As a major courthouse venue including federal, state, and county facilities, it is home to more than 1,000 law firms. The city is also a college town, with nearly 50,000 students attending the city's universities and medical and law schools. Its airport, maritime port, rail facilities, and highway network make Newark the busiest transshipment hub on the East Coast in terms of volume.
Though Newark is not the industrial colossus of the past, the city does have a considerable amount of industry and light manufacturing. The southern portion of the Ironbound, also known as the Industrial Meadowlands, has seen many factories built since World War II, including a large Anheuser-Busch brewery that opened in 1951 and distributed 7.5 million barrels of beer in 2007. The service industry is also growing rapidly, replacing those in the manufacturing industry, which was once Newark's primary economy. In addition, transportation has become a large business in Newark, accounting for more than 17,000 jobs in 2011.

New York City In A Day (NYC must-see) - In A Brooklyn Minute (Week 108) [HD]
RE-PUBLISHED (original date: May 24, 2012) -- --
What if you only have one day (or even just an afternoon) to explore New York City? This is the tour I would recommend!
When Margaret Briggs came up from Florida for the premiere of All's Well and Fair it was her first time in NYC. Because the film premiere celebration (yay!!!) went rather late, we got a slow start the next day and actually didn't get going until the later afternoon.
I made a mental must-see list and off we ran. This is what we managed to see and I would recommend for anyone who only has a day [not all would fit into the video]:
Brooklyn Promenade with Manhattan skyline + Statue of Liberty + Brooklyn Bridge + East River views
Street Food (Mango Flower!)
Walk across Brooklyn Bridge (w/ views of Empire State Building, Manhattan Bridge + Dumbo)
[St. Paul's Chapel]
[9/11 Firemen Memorial]
National 9/11 Memorial and World Trade Center seen from World Financial Center
Winter Garden (World Financial Center)
Statue of Liberty
Battery Park with sunset views over New Jersey
Little Italy (with Cannoli)
East Village (St. Marks Street)
street musicians + awesome kid dancer (my dad rocks!) on Astor Place
[Tibetan dinner at Tsampa]
[Empire State Building lobby]
[beers at Lolita in Lower East Side where a woman wore the Honey Badger Don't Care shirt]
Yellow cab across the Manhattan Bridge back to Brooklyn
Phew. Yes our feet and legs were very sore the next day. We still made it to Prospect Park for some greenery and a glance at GoogaMooga before Margaret had to catch the plane home.
And if you have more a full day or 2, I'd definitely recommend going to the top of the Empire State Building, taking the Staten Island Ferry for a free ride past the Statue of Liberty and hopping on the subway out to Coney Island.
Of course, don't forget to eat: an Everything Bagel, a pizza slice and a piece of cheesecake from Junior's (Brooklyn) or Ferrara (Little Italy). Drinking cocktails at Angel Share, beer at Motor City or singing Karaoke at the Manhattan Inn are optional.
The soulful groovy song is called Soulwalk by The Mirrors (Jason Matherne's band).
