Book Overview

It's called the Empire State because, as any New Yorker will tell you, it's the state by which all others are measured. And it certainly takes the cake for odd legends, bizarre beasts, and twisted mysteries. Go say hi to Jumper and Grumpy at America's largest pet cemetery. Avoid the screaming and gunshots of House Road, but do sample the Jell-O Museum in Le Roy. And next time you're in Staten Island, beware of Bigfoot-he's found his way out there...

A must-have for travelers

this book is so wonderful. as you travel around new york, you keep finding more and more interesting places. the writers have done a great job of describing some of the oddities and best kept secrets of new york state. i keep it in the car, and have been to 1/2 of them already. a must have for anyone who likes to go off the beaten path

Big, HUGE Fun!!

I picked this up because I recognized the photo on the front. That's the "waitress lady" I've passed for more than 40 years in a tiny town called Silver Creek NY. That's the glory of this book. Filled with wonderful color photos, you too will recognize the 'weird' of NY that you never realized was right under your nose. Did you notice the "Burger Family" in Glens Falls? Hear the creepy knock from the crypt on Rt 8? Just a great read. Since there are books for every state, they make wonderful gifts as well.

Lighthearted And A Lot Of Fun.

I first saw this book lying on a Specials table in a local bookstore. I picked it up, read a few exerpts and decided I have to had to have it. Weird New York is a collection of short stories and oddities regarding New York places, people and facinations. Although its a big book (almost 300 pages) its really affordably priced, a quick read and an absolute blast to read. Its interesting to read stories about places near where you live and you never even knew existed. I suggest this book to anyone with a fascination of the weird and wanting a lighthearted book to read.

Weird and Wonderful

Weird NJ has been a mainstay of my magazine rack for years, and now Weird NY clues us in to cool spooky and strange things in New York State! And one of my pictures appears on a top righthand page (baby crib grave). Collect all of the "Weird" books - even for states you may never visit, they are the coolest.

Fill up the tank and get ready for a road trip.

That's what I said to my husband after reading this book. I can't believe that there are so many interesting places to visit in NY. So we've put yellow stickies on each of our favorite places and we'll do weekend trips. Wierd NY is well written and offers something for every age. The photos are beatifully done. I loved this book so much that I am planning to buy the other books in this series.
