The tale of Cropsey was a classic tale told to misbehaving children. The Staten Island boogeyman snatched and murdered young kids with an ice pick—or an ax or a hook hand, depending on who tells the tale. Head over to the College of Staten Island (CSI) for a glimpse at the old buildings that fed the legend. Before it was CSI, it was an institution for children with disabilities named Willowbrook State School until it was shut down in 1987. Real-life Cropsey, Andre Rand, was a custodian at Willowbrook responsible for the disappearance of five children.
