I actually live by this cemetery. I walk my dog around at night. There are some things that go on during the night that I have noticed. Mary's statue is one of the scariest. It does actually cry blood. I've seen it. It is really crazy but it is pretty cool. I go there all the time on Halloween to try to discover some new things. I have. If you want to know more. Message me on AIM or on here.
Oakwood cemetery is not haunted, if you come in through the 113th street entrance at night it might be a little spooky because there are no lights up that long hill, and the first grave you see (the angel statue with the wings spread out and arms out as if to hold something) is also a little spooky. My two bestfriends and my lil brother has gone in there well after midnight and i had lots of pictures but all we saw were a lot of deer. we went all the way to the monument that overlooks the highschool, hung out there (i had a cigarrette or two lol) and then made a wide circle through the rest of the cemetery and back out the 113th street entrance. We did see anything (but deer), and didn't hear anything out of the ordinary.
Oh and most of yous are getting pinewoods cemetery (troy cemetery that is actually in brunswick) mixed up with oakwood.

I tried going to oakwood for years,and it was like a higher power didn't want me to.I live right near by in Rensselaer.I finally got to go in with my friend B in the day time.We were fishtailing his malibu and just being dumb.Nothing happened.
The second time I went in with 4 friends at night.Well early Halloween morning 2010.We came in off of Oakwood ave I believe,and had to run past a house and across a field by the crematory.We walked in a ways,and stopped near a hill where it was more open,and me,M,and S all took a leak.I was just thinking how disapointing the place was when we all heard a moan from down the hill.The place seamed to reveal itself to you as you wondered around.Very weird.We all heard a gunshot,probbly a 22 in the middle of the place and ducked down behind headstones.It got real active as we were leavng about 3 in the morning.We heard a baby cooing or something,and footsteps on fallen leaves.We saw a shadow behind us the whole way out.When we were almost out,M said he felt like he got chopped in he throat and tears started rolling down his cheeks.We all stared feeling chills,and walked faster.Right as we were coming out of the trees and to the field I heard something breathe out a long breathe over my right shoulder.I turned to see if it was M and he was standing 3 feet away from me staring a me like he'd seen a ghost.We both booked it out of there,and the others saw us and did the same.
It was intersting for sure.
