Overview

Myths and Mysteries of New York: True Stories of the Unsolved and Unexplained by Fran Capo

Are there alligators under New York City? Gators have been said to thrive in the Big Apple's sewers since a rash of reported sightings in the 1930s. Since then, the rumors have gained credence. Fact—or fiction? • The Montauk Project Did the military take the lessons learned in the so-called "Philadelphia Experiment" of 1943 and apply the same technology at Montauk—to develop a weapon that would literally drive the enemy insane? • The Leather Man Just who was the homeless man who walked a 365-mile route every thirty-four days, dressed in heavy leather? From the Lake Champlain monster to the friendly ghost hostess of Skene Manor, Myths and Mysteries of New York makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the state's most fascinating stories.
