Introduction
     New York State is undeniably one of the most famous and influential places on the planet. Although it is the 30th largest state in the union, New York holds the second largest population of all the states (nearly 20 million people) almost half of which is located in New York City. The population is one of the most diverse in the world. New York City is a phenomenon in itself; it has been called the center of human civilization, containing the entire range of human diversity and culture. It is an undisputed world leader in economics, politics, theater, publishing - you name it, it can be found in New York City.

      New York became a state on July 26, 1788 as the eleventh of the original thirteen states. Prior to that, it had been occupied by various Native American tribes, mainly the Algonquin and the Iroquois.

      The state contains 49,108 square miles, with 127 miles of coastline. The highest point is Mt. Marcy at 5,344 feet, located in the Adirondack Upland in northeast New York. There are a large number of lakes and artificial reservoirs, and much of the non-urban areas are forested. The climate is varied with the lowest recorded temperature at negative 52 degrees Fahrenheit at Stillwater Reservoir and the highest at 108 degrees Fahrenheit in Troy.

      It should come as no surprise that New York has a rich UFO history. The state's first major introduction to UFOs came more than 100 years ago, during the now-famous 1897 airship wave. Following the dawn of the modern age of UFOs in 1947, New York soon produced a number of significant or high-profile "classic" cases such as the 1956, Ryan-Neff UFO chase, the 1964 Gary Wilcox UFO landing and the 1965 Cherry Creek landing. That same year the now famous UFO-caused New York blackout occurred, plunging nearly one-third of the nation into darkness. This was followed by the 1966 sighting of a UFO hovering over the U.N. building, the revelation of the Robert & Jason Steiner abduction case (one of the first cases in the United States), the sighting of a UFO over downtown Manhattan by musical legend, John Lennon, several well-known Air Force Project Blue Book cases...and many more.

      Then in the mid-1980s, the Hudson Valley area experienced one of the most intense UFO waves in world history, lasting at least four years and involving hundreds of objects and thousands of witnesses. Around the same time, a small town known as Pine Bush began to attract attention as a hotbed of continuing UFO activity.

      Also, unknown to many, the UFO abduction movement had much of its origin in New York, spearheaded mainly through the investigative work of New York artist, Elliot Budd Hopkins, and by the incredible revelations of novelist Whitley Strieber whose 1988 book Communion about his own abductions by "visitors" from his upstate cabin in New York broke publishing records and remained a New York Times bestseller for two years.

     In 1999 researcher Budd Hopkins announced the unique Brooklyn Bridge abduction case - one of the very few cases of an observed UFO abduction. The attention of the world became focused on the incident and New York again showed its powerful influence in the UFO movement.

     New York also has a surprisingly complex history of UFO-military encounters that illustrate the government interest in and cover-up of the UFO phenomenon, including several cases of apparent UFO crash/retrievals.

      One perhaps uniquely New York feature is the large number of accounts in which New Yorkers have seen extraterrestrials walking among the urban population, in bookstores, restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings, subways, train-stations and other seemingly unlikely locations.

      These are only a few of the many incredible UFO events that have taken place in New York State. As can be seen, the Empire State has a colorful and unique history of UFO events. In fact, according to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) based in Washington State, New York ranks fifth against all the other states in terms of the number of reported encounters, with a total of more than 1690 reports. As we shall see, however, the total number of recorded cases is considerably higher than that.

      Because of its prominent position in world society, the history of New York has been exhaustively documented. There have already been a few books written about New York UFO encounters, most notably Night Siege, by J. Allen Hynek, Philip Imbrogno and Bob Pratt, which presents the story of the now famous four-year-long Hudson Valley UFO wave, some of which actually took place in Connecticut. Imbrogno also wrote a follow-up book, Close Encounters of the 5th Kind with co-author Marianne Horrigan, which presents more Hudson Valley sightings and several New York abduction cases, though the scope of that book is again not limited to the state. Ellen Crystall's book Silent Invasion, presents a narrative of her own encounters in California, New Jersey and most significantly, Pine Bush, New York. Vinny Polise's book, The Pine Bush Phenomenon follows up Crystall's research, again focusing mainly on Pine Bush. Finally Budd Hopkins' book Witnessed presents the now-famous Brooklyn Bridge abductions. Few other books, however, have focused on New York encounters, and none has done so exclusively.

     UFOs Over New York:  A True History of Extraterrestrial Encounters in the Empire State is the first book to present the complete history of UFOs in New York State, from the first encounters more than 150 years earlier to the present day. Cases have been derived from a wide variety of sources including books, magazines, newspaper articles, UFO journals, television and radio programs, websites, UFO organizations, UFO investigators and firsthand interviews. The book is organized chronologically and topically, starting with a history of sightings, then moving on to more extensive cases of UFO landings and humanoids. After that there is a section on abductions and onboard UFO experiences. Finally, there is a chapter on uniquely New York conspiracies and cover-ups, and at the very end, a chapter outlining current events.  So come along on this fascinating journey as we explore New York's involvement with one of the most persistent and perplexing mysteries of modern times.
