Identifying a Flying Bug

Can anybody identifiy this bug? They're all over my hallways. I live in Massachusetts, but got nothing when I tried researching it. It looks like a mosquito, but I have never seen these types. Anybody? Thanks in advance :)

Based on its size, it is likely a "Crane Fly." They are harmless, and attracted to light. Just kind of startling due to their size. Here is a link that might give you a little more info:

This is a lakefly. Commonly found in lake winnebago in wisconsin. They lay eggs in the lake. The egg larvae worms burrow into the sand and are eaten by lake sturgeon. They hatch when the water starts to warm up in late may and again a smaller hatch in late august.

The insect above with the "feathery" antennae is a Midge.
