If you know anything about apartments in New York City, you probably understand that most of them are overpriced and undersized. But one woman got way more than she bargained for when she felt a draft in her NYC apartment and soon discovered that when it comes to wanting more space in your living quarters, you should be careful what you wish for.

Samantha Hartsoe has gone viral on TikTok after posting a series of videos that show what she found when she began searching for the source of a mysterious cold breeze in her apartment. Was it a hole in the wall? A ghost? Or something even stranger?


seriously never would I have expected to find this… and I documented all of it #mystery #fyp #nyc #secret #foryou #apartment #storytime

Ok, so now we know that the strange, chilly breeze is coming from the mirror. Weird, but hey, maybe there was just some shoddy repair work done on the wall behind it. Or maybe an appliance had been removed, and the mirror was there to cover it up. But come on, we all know this saga doesn’t have such a simple ending.

Nope, it wasn’t just a hole — there’s a full-on ROOM back there! And Samantha just went in?!

Hours passed between the second and third video, and people following the story began to worry. Then, finally, we got an update. As it turns out, the big delay might’ve just been because she had such a hard time figuring out how to get through to the other side.


TRULY a new meaning to a “hole in the wall” #mystery #nyc #apartment #secret #storytime #fyp #foryou

Anyway, she was in now. It was the moment of truth. Was there nothing but a little extra space, or was this a Candyman-esque horror story about to happen before our eyes? As it turns out, it was something in the middle. Samantha made it out alive and didn’t encounter any humans, but what she found was still deeply unsettling.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Samantha updates us on how that conversation went with her landlord, but for now, we’re just very glad she’s ok after living in an apartment with a whole other apartment hiding behind her mirror!
