Ghost Stories of New York State Cover
New York State's rich and colorful history has given rise to a wealth of blood-curdling, spine-tingling tales of the supernatural. Spanning the entire length and breadth of the Empire State, this carefully researched collection of fright-filled folklore explores the unexplained phenomena, colorful spirits and haunted history that make up New York's paranormal legacy:

"Popper," a grumpy poltergeist with a tendency to pop open lids, causes a media frenzy on Long Island

horses refuse to cross a bridge in the Genessee Valley--where a peddler was killed long ago

Henrietta, a saucy widow with a penchant for the drink, haunts a hard-to-find speakeasy in New York City

on moonlit nights, a ghost soldier wanders Fort Niagara in search of his missing head

slaughtered during the Revolutionary War, Loyalist Jane McCrea returns to haunt her former home in Fort Edward

a ghost pig, capable of splitting itself in two, chases away visitors to Fishkill

in Nyack, a couple wins an unusual lawsuit, making it illegal to knowingly sell a haunted house in New York State

Martha Mesereau, one of Staten Island's most famous spirits, waits patiently for her husband's return from the Civil War

vehicles and hitchhikers disappear without a trace along Devil's Elbow, an ominous stretch of road in the Catskills.
