Weird New York: Your Travel Guide to New York's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets

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.
