Fort Wadsworth Staten Island EVP

EVP at Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island

The weather over Staten Island on the night of August 3rd, 2019, was unusual to say the least. My wife and I first noticed it as we drove home from a party: isolated flashes of lighting, pinkish-orange in color, with no thunder. The lightning appeared at first to be localized behind a single cloud, not […]

Montauk Monster of Staten Island

Montauk Monster on Staten Island?

Staten Island is famous (or infamous) for many things, but monsters and cryptids are not really among them. Sure, we’ve had lots of UFO sightings, creepy clowns, mystery sounds, alligators in the sewers, and even a Bigfoot sighting back in the ’70s, but sadly (for me, anyways) we don’t have a cryptid, a Staten Island […]

20 UFO Sightings on Staten Island in 4 Years

Staten Island is usually referred to as “the forgotten borough” of New York City, more often the butt of jokes rather than being seen as a tourist destination or a trendy place to live. Even the local politicians seem to ignore or forget Staten Island in their dealings. But it is forgotten when it comes […]

Mysterious Sounds in Bucks County, PA

One of my favorite unexplained mysteries, from when I was a wee lad reading about such things in the library, is unexplained sounds. In fact, one of my very first “mysteries of the unexplained” encyclopedias had an entry devoted to the Barisal Guns phenomenon heard in 19th century Bangladesh, so named because they sounded like […]

Year in Review 2017

The Year In Review: 2017

And just like that, it’s 2018. The past year was a bit of a wild ride for the world, and unfortunately I didn’t get around to posting much on the blog, for a variety of reasons. I’m really not big on the whole “New Year’s Resolution” thing, but I really do need to make a […]

Alligator found in Mariners Harbor, Staten Island, bathtub

Alligator Found in Staten Island Bathtub

Most people are familiar with the urban legend of “alligators in the sewers,” especially here in New York City. And a good portion of those people probably still believe it’s just that, an urban legend. But it has actually happened (and there are many “out of place” animal reports in addition to this one). But recently the NYPD […]

Creepy Clown Spotted on Staten Island

As a native New Yorker and a paranormal investigator, I have to say that in my opinion,  the creepiest borough in New York City is Staten Island. Not Manhattan, not Brooklyn. Queens is barely on my radar, and the Bronx is scary for non-paranormal reasons, but the forgotten borough is the place to be if […]

The Year in Review: 2013 – Part 3

Happy New Year, readers! 2014 is here, and it’s time once again to look back at the previous year. I first did a “Year in Review” series back in 2012 (for 2011), but wasn’t able to do one last year. The demands of my job at the time were too great, and I was bogged […]

Haunted House Moves…Literally

To be honest, I’ve never really understood moving a house. It just seems odd to me, and even though I guess the experts know ways around this, it just seems like it would cause structural damage. And ultimately be more trouble than it’s worth. For the record, we’ve actually investigated a house that was supposedly […]
