    I heard approximately some thing like that. But I suppose the condo had exits. And no longer best staircases that once to nowhere however doorways that did not open or did not lead in which you suggestion they could. Even one door at the two or three tale that used to be a drop off too the backyard. I suppose it used to be on a television exhibit however I do not take into account greater than that. Maybe when you googled haunted residences with a few others main points you would discover it. Sorry I'm no longer a lot aid
