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

    Alligators in the sewers of New York City, said to be the descendants of baby alligators flushed down toilets; the finger marks of the Great Spirit, according to the Iroquois, as seen in the Finger Lakes to the west of Syracuse; the literary ghosts, including Dorothy Parker, of New York City's Algonquin Hotel; the skeletal Rambout Van Dam who rows the Tappan Zee; 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; the incredible twenty-two ghosts haunting the house at 14 West 10th Street in Manhattan, which include Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens); and 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), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of New York State.

    Champ, the famous monster of Lake Champlain on the northeastern border of the state; the Devil's Stepping Stones in Long Island Sound, used by Satan to escape from Native American warriors; 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 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); 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 witches of Native American legend who may still dwell in the glacial Green Lakes; and the Montauk monster, an unidentified carcass (but thought by some to be a bald raccoon), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in New York State.

    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; the ghost ship Adventure Galley, commanded by Captain Kidd, seen near Bear Mountain Bridge; the giant serpent of Silver Lake, near Gainesville; 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; events in the Long Island house dramatised in the film The Amityville Horror (please do not linger as it is a private residence); 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 Cardiff Giant, an allegedly petrified man now on display in the Farmer's Museum, Cooperstown; and the pirate treasure, possibly Captain Kidd's, buried on New York harbour's Liberty Island but protected by a fire breathing devil, are more weird folklore associated with New York State.

    Attractions and Sights/Places to See in New York State

    Beautiful Lake Placid, famous for its winter and summer sports; Cooperstown, the birthplace of James Fenimore Cooper (author of the 1826 novel The Last of the Mohicans, a great adventure story and absolutely modern in its anti-racist sentiments), as well as being the home of the Farmer's Museum (where you can see the Cardiff Giant) and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum; Niagara Falls, the honeymoon destination on the border with Canada; the Finger Lakes; the state capital at Albany; Lake George; the Darwin D Martin House Complex in Buffalo, a prairie house design by Frank LLoyd Wright; the George Eastman House and International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester; the many attractions of New York city, including the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings, the Statue of Liberty and the ancient Cleopatra's Needle; and Thousand Islands on the Saint Lawrence River, are among the attractions of New York State.

    The USA is one of the most developed and technologically advanced countries in the world, yet has preserved much of its wilderness and beautiful scenery. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Dallas, Minneapolis, Skagway, Fairbanks, Philadelphia, Lake Tahoe, Atlanta, San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, Phoenix, Chicago, Houston, Albuquerque, Sacramento, Boston, Juneau, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Fort Lauderdale, Savannah, St Louis, New York, Santa Fe, Las Vegas, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Detroit, Washington DC, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Sitka, Anchorage, Corpus Christi, Atlantic City and Honolulu are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Ozarks, Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Bryce Canyon, the Adirondacks, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, Mount Rainier National Park, the California coastline, the Florida Keys, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, Niagara Falls, the Everglades, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, the Grand Canyon, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, the Appalachians, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Okefenokee Swamp, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Disney resorts and rodeos.

    The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. We at camelopard.com wish you a pleasant journey in the USA.
