78th Precinct basement becomes haunted house

The basement of the NYPD's 78th Precinct building in Prospect Heights is once again a haunted house for Halloween.



Scary clowns, zombies and even a creepy lady singing to her baby are all police officers in disguise.



The precinct has candy and ghosts upstairs for younger children.



Frank DiGiacomo, the precinct's commanding officer, says the haunted house helps boost relations between police and the community.



The haunted house is open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. every day until Sunday.
