Summer 1960s : Brooklyn, New York

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Brooklyn, New York

Date: Summer 1960s

Number of objects: 1

I am trying to research a particular sighting that I personally witness as a young man living in Brooklyn, New York. I cannot remember the dates except that it was a summer in the 1960s.

Is there any information available regarding such an incident. When I have given my account to others they claim they no recall of such an incident. I seem to think / remember that it may have been reported in the New York Daily News.

Interestingly enough what was found the next day and reported in the Daily News was a "creature" that had washed up on a Brighton Beach or Coney Island shore resembling an alligator or croc with fur?? It was reported that one time only and never mentioned again in follow-up reports.

If you cannot be of help can you refer me to anyone or any organization that may have knowledge of this sighting. What I saw from my third floor apartment window with a clear view, no more than a block away, was a UFO hovering over the old Griffin Shoe Polish factory on Willoughby Ave. in Brooklyn.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone has knowledge of this incident please write to me at
