Quote:According to Feng Shui principles, home sites with a close proximity to a cemetery are highly undesirable. To a lesser degree, but still considered as unfavorable, are former hospital and prison sites. A cemetery has strong "yin" or dark energies of death. This imbalance of yin/yang energies can cause instability by lowering the energies around it. Depending on which direction the cemetery is at in relation to home, how large it is, and the nature of the people who are buried in the cemetery, there are different levels of effects. Although residents may not feel oppressed at first, over time, they may find it hard to excel.
I always felt, for myself, that living near the dead would be creepy.
Then for some others...
Quote:Patrick Bombino wasn’t spooked when he purchased his studio in a luxury high-rise in Brooklyn that overlooks a cemetery. On the contrary, he said, ‘I loved it.’
The reason: because of the unobstructed views, the ease of parking and the, well, peace and quiet.
“Another advantage is if I have to drop dead, I can jump out the window and I’m there,” joked Mr. Bombino, a Philadelphia resident who uses the studio during business trips to New York City.
It reminds me of a show I once watched, where a couple bought their dream home then a neighbor told them there was a mass murder in their home. They were outraged that the real estate agent did not tell them this fact and wanted to sue the agency, but lost as there was no law forcing the agent to reveal this type of information. Subsequently, the couple sold it as fast a they could.
