Angry squirrel terrorizes New York neighborhood. “It was like a MMA cage match – and I lost!”

Residents of New York City borough’s Rego Park neighborhood report an aggressive squirrel is attacking citizens in random ambushes on unsuspecting denizens. Micheline Frederick told reporters the nutty squirrel jumped from a tree and sank its teeth in her fingers. 'We’re wrestling in the snow and there’s blood everywhere and my fingers getting chewed and it won’t let go. Eventually, it just stopped and there I was a big bloody mess." Micheline Frederick noted the creature seemed unusually angry but she fought it with every ounce of strength she could muster. “I had my hand around its body and I could not get this thing off. It was angry, vicious and incredibly strong.” Frederick says the beast clamped onto her hand and wouldn't let go. She eventually shook the

A 3,100-mile race around a single New York City block is so long, you’ll need a haircut before finishing it.

It’s called the Everest of Ultra Running. But Mount Everest has been summitted by more than 4,000 people. The Self Transcendence race has only been finished by 43 people in the 22 years it has been run. It is certified as the world’s longest foot race. Runners run the equivalent of two marathons each day for two months. They do this with only five hours sleep each night. They’ll stress internal organs and destroy from 15-30 pairs of shoes before finishing the race. Almost every racer who enters the race will fail. Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3,100 Mile Race The Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3,100 Mile Race takes place in New York City on 84th Avenue, along Grand Central Parkway, around Thomas Edison High School, down 168 Street, and

What’s up with the increase in UFO sightings and discussion in the news media?

It’s a hot topic today – UFOs – and they’re now being discussed openly, and seriously by the media. Just this month a discussion about the elusiveness of UFOs was reported in the scientific journal, Space. History channel reported on sightings near nuclear facilities. Live Science ran a story recounting UFO sightings documented by the Pentagon’s Advance Aerospace Threat Identification Program. Popular Mechanics reported President Trump and Senators had been briefed on UFO sightings. And CNN ran a story about the large number of pilots reporting UFO encounters. UFOs are big news right now – and the number of reports are only accelerating. Why has the number of UFO reports increased? Possibly the large number of conflicts around the world keep the public’s eye to the

35 Thomas Street – the ultra top-secret NSA headquarter located smack dab in the middle of Manhattan (meet Titanpointe)

It’s common knowledge that the commercial behemoth AT&T has surreptitiously partnered with the NSA since the Bell companies split up decades ago. How much cooperation they provided however, was not known until Edward Snowden leaked top secret government documents revealing not only extensive cooperation with secret government agencies, but a clever veil of deceit willingly provided by one of America’s most respected corporations. 33 Thomas Street In 1969, AT&T began construction of a building located at 33 Thomas Street in the lower Manhattan borough of New York City. Standing on the east side of Church Street between Thomas and Worth streets, the building was known as the Long Lines Building (and later discovered to be Titanpointe). It was architected like a typical 1970’s style phone building –

Legendary mobster hit-man “Sammy the Bull”, killer of at least 19 people, is released from prison

All the world’s a stage – and our platform grew more bizarre, and dangerous, this week. Convicted mob hit-man Salvatore “Sammy The Bull” Gravano has been released from prison on parole. In 1989, the 72-year-old mobster confessed to 19 murders (including his brother-in-law) but avoided death row after taking a generous plea deal which brought down his former boss, John Gotti. His plea allowed only 5 years behind bars (of which he served one) but in 2000, he was arrested again for running a large organized drug distribution ring and sentenced to 20 years in the slammer. He was released on September 18, 2017. Brooklyn Federal Judge Allyne Ross denied a bid by Gravano to receive an early release two years ago because of the 'staggering

Politicians, organizations, and shell companies spin a delicate web of deceit between Trump, Russia, and NYC mob

Unravelling President Donald J. Trump’s rumored political and business ties unveils potentially the greatest US conspiracy of all time When delving into potential collusion between Russia and high level U.S. officials, it's not the depravity of the participants’ actions but rather, the repute of the participants, the public’s level of trust in them, and the frequency of fraudulent activity which ultimately reveal to be the normal method of operation in the cesspool of Manhattan’s real estate market. With the evidence currently available, we cannot yet conclude that US President Donald Trump had illicit connections to the Russian government (or the mob), shrouded channels that potentially include concessions that weaken the USA’s democracy, nor can we confirm that Donald J. Trump’s business practices, or those of any other

Mysterious radio transmission out of New Jersey hints at something sinister in 2016 presidential election

The source of the radio transmission is unclear as is its intent. The transmission began on September 20, 2016 on AM radio station 1630 and repeated the phrase “Trump will go 26th” in a loop that lasted several hours at least (as of the time of this article, people in the area were reporting the transmission was ongoing). Recordings of the message were captured and posted on YouTube. One poster noted: “So this weirdness just happened on our way to Hoboken at 7AM this morning on the New Jersey Turnpike. On 1630 AM radio, a voice keeps repeating "Trump will go 26th". It went on for at least 5 minutes from when the radio tuned it in while scanning. Near the Newark airport I78 part of Turnpike.

New York nuclear power plant discovered leaking radioactive material into groundwater systems

Officials announced this week that the Indian Point Energy Center nuclear power plant is leaking radioactive tritium into groundwater wells near the facility. Of course, authorities are telling the public there is nothing to worry about. However, be forewarned – there's no such thing as a "harmless" radioactive material leak. The Indian Point Energy Center is a three-unit reactor power plant located in Buchanan, New York, on the east bank of the Hudson River (twenty-five miles north of New York City). Officials detected the leaks in three different groundwater monitoring wells surrounding the nuclear plant. The owner of the plant, Entergy, says that the leaks are “not in accordance with our standards” but claims the leaks pose “no health or safety consequence to the public.” Dismissing a potential public

Super-secret “backscatter X-Ray” vans are cruising the streets of America peering through walls, doors, and autos

What are backscatter X-Ray vans? They may look innocuous enough – large gray or white unmarked vans driving through neighborhoods or downtown cityscapes. But these super-secret vans, known as Z Backscatter Vans, may be not only invading your privacy, they may be endangering your health as they spray military-grade wide-reaching backscatter X-rays to pierce walls, doors, and steel truck and car bodies allowing authorities to peer straight through protective privacy barriers (e.g. walls) while on the move. Yes, the invasive scanning technology we love to hate has made its way from U.S. airports onto America’s streets - in droves. Your government is secretly X-Raying your automobile and home as they drive by. At this time, the vans are known to be employed by US Customs and Border Protection,

Multiple panicked witnesses call New York City 911 reporting a fast-moving “flying saucer” over the Bronx

For the second time in twelve months, residents of New York City reacted in panic after seeing a UFO streak across the skies above the Bronx. Authorities say they received several phone calls from citizens on April 25, 2015 reporting a “flying saucer” moving swiftly over East 149th Street and Bruckner Expressway. Juan Marrero was on the roof of his building in Hunts Point (a neighborhood in South Bronx) tending to his pigeons when he saw two bright orbs speed across the sky. “I look up and see this fireball, ‘Whoosh!’ and then another, ‘Whoosh!’ From one side of the sky to the other, too fast for an airplane.” 25-year-old Andres Morales also spotted the streaking objects. He grabbed his smartphone and began taking pictures including the one

The bizarre life, disappearances, and deaths surrounding millionaire Robert (Bob) Durst

It’s not difficult to see that Robert (Bob) Durst is different. Born April 12, 1943 in New York City, the oldest of four children, he is the son of New York City real-estate moguls Seymour and Bernice Durst and brother of commercial developer Douglas Durst of the Durst Organization – and an heir to the enormous Durst skyscraper fortune. The first thing you will notice about Bob Durst is his coal black eyes which give him an unusual, otherworldly appearance. Throw in the occasional stutters, a habit of mumbling to himself, frequent squinting and blinking of his eyes, and intermittent references to himself as “we” and it becomes near impossible to see him as anything but different. His unusual physical and behavioral quirks are compounded by

World Trade Center photographer’s last picture before North Tower collapsed on top of him

  54-year-old William G. Biggart first heard about the World Trade Center terrorist attacks from a passing taxi driver. News that a plane had just crashed into the World Trade Center prompted Biggart to rush to his apartment near Union Square and grab three of his cameras – two film and one digital. He then walked two miles to the center not knowing the next couple of hours would be the last moments of his life. As Biggart walked toward the burning towers, he shot photographs of the event from various angles. He arrived at the building complex and amidst fire trucks and emergency personnel, situated himself near the North Tower where he could shoot nearly straight up at the burning structures. At 9:29 AM, he captured

NYC residents report hearing a spooky chilling chorus of voices coming from new One World Trade Center

The first reports of a "ghostly moan" came via social networks in late October 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. Puzzled New York City residents reported hearing a strange sound, described as a steady, consistent moaning noise, coming from One World Trade Center (formerly known as Freedom Towers). “It’s a strange humming or whining. It’s only been a few hours but we’re almost insane. Any ideas?” Others discussed the odd noise and decided it was the wind whistling through the top, unfinished floors of the new One World Trade Center tower. Then a few months later, another resident, New Yorker Kenny Cummings, reported hearing the strange sound – after the tower was substantially completed and the façade enclosed with glass.    Cummings raced outside to record the noise which he then posted

New York garage worker drives car into empty elevator shaft – plummets over three stories and survives

A Manhattan garage worker survived when the car he was driving plummeted three and a half stories down an empty elevator shaft. The unidentified worker, who was driving a black Audi in the Sterling Garage on E. 80th St., thought the elevator bed was on the fifth floor and drove the car into the elevator opening. His car plunged down the elevator shaft and became stuck, upside down, between the first and second floors. The man escaped by climbing through the car’s moon roof and was helped out of the shaft by other workers. He was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Firefighters worked to remove the car from the shaft throughout the day last Thursday. Strangely, it is not the first time

NICK BEEF mystery solved – the man behind (not under) the gravestone located next to Lee Harvey Oswald’s

The mysterious “Nick Beef” headstone located next to Lee Harvey Oswald’s grave For years, curiosity seekers visiting the Fort Worth, Texas, grave of Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, have wondered about the near identical pinkish granite headstone next door, marked “NICK BEEF”. The rectangular markers are the same size, each bearing only a name, with no inscription for date of birth or death. But there is one big difference between the two graves – Nick Beef’s is empty. So what was the purpose of this odd headstone? Was it a joke? A conspiracy? Were the odd capitalized letters some sort of secret acronym? Who is Nick Beef? As it turns out, Nick Beef, born Patric Abedin, is alive and living in New York City. The mysterious gravestone
