The number of UFO sightings in New York since 2000 has been astronomical, according to an interactive map produced by The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

Established in 1974, the site exists to "receive, record and, to the greatest degree possible, collaborate and document reports from individuals who have been witness to unusual, possibly UFO-related events," according to its website.

There have since been over 170,000 reports made to the organization, with nearly 6,000 in New York alone. And lots of those are centered over New York City, with Bedford-Stuyvesant and Tribeca, neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Manhattan, respectively, reporting hundreds over the years, some as recent as September and August 2023, respectively.
