    Folklore, Ghosts, Legends, Monsters, Myths and Scary Stories in New York State

    The dwerg (dwarf) of John Coleman, a seaman with Hendrik Hudson (did Coleman not recover from his encounter with the Catskill gnomes and so remained a dwarf?), who still haunts the area near Donderberg (Thunder Mountain) on the Hudson River; the Devil's Stepping Stones in Long Island Sound, used by Satan to escape from Native American warriors; the pirate treasure, possibly Captain Kidd's, buried on New York harbour's Liberty Island but protected by a fire breathing devil; the ghosts of Sleepy Hollow (a real village popularly known by that name before it officially became so in 1996), where Washington Irving is buried and which really is haunted, especially around Raven Rock, by a wailing lady in white, the witch Mother Hulda and by a spectral horseman (not headless and usually heard but not seen); the literary ghosts, including Dorothy Parker, of New York City's Algonquin Hotel; the witches of Native American legend who may still dwell in the glacial Green Lakes; and the ghosts of the Dakota Apartments (used in exterior shots in Rosemary's Baby) in New York City, including an Edwardian little girl, a little boy dressed in clothes of the same period, a young man, a crying woman, Edward Clark (who had the Dakota built) and, it is said, former Beatle John Lennon, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of New York State.

    The finger marks of the Great Spirit, according to the Iroquois, as seen in the Finger Lakes to the west of Syracuse; the Montauk monster, an unidentified carcass (but thought by some to be a bald raccoon); the Cardiff Giant, an allegedly petrified man now on display in the Farmer's Museum, Cooperstown; the Catskill Witch who, according to Native American folklore, commanded the weather from Top Mountain and Round Top before playing tricks on anyone who ventured into her domain, once called Ontiora or Mountains of the Sky; the Devil's Dance Chamber to the west of the Hudson River, where native Americans performed their divinatory dance rituals until the Manitou manifested himself as a wild animal; the ghost ship Adventure Galley, commanded by Captain Kidd, seen near Bear Mountain Bridge; and events in the Long Island house dramatised in the film The Amityville Horror (please do not linger as it is a private residence), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in New York State.

    Alligators in the sewers of New York City, said to be the descendants of baby alligators flushed down toilets; the ghost ship The Flying Dutchman, usually associated with the Cape of Good Hope but which is said by some to appear at Tappan Zee on the Hudson River (I suspect that it is really Captain Kidd's ship the Adventure Galley); the celebrity ghosts of New York City's Chelsea Hotel (itself immortalised in song by Leonard Cohen), which allegedly include Sid Vicious, Dylan Thomas, Thomas Wolfe and Eugene O'Neill; Champ, the famous monster of Lake Champlain on the northeastern border of the state; the giant serpent of Silver Lake, near Gainesville; the incredible twenty-two ghosts haunting the house at 14 West 10th Street in Manhattan, which include Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens); the metal-working Catskill gnomes (originally of Mohican (Mahican) legend but possibly embellished since), pygmies with piggy eyes, long beards and enormous heads (melonheads?), whose games of nine-pins every twenty years cause thunder and flashes of light (September 3rd 2029 should be the date of their next tournament and, for the brave, the mountain behind the now demolished New Grand Hotel was said to be a good place to look but beware, Hendrik Hudson's crew were temporarily turned into gnomes after drinking their liquor and Rip van Winkle met the gnomes with famous results); and the skeletal Rambout Van Dam who rows the Tappan Zee, are more weird folklore associated with New York State.
