NYACK PARANORMAL began as a Father / Son team interested in keeping an open mind about the paranormal. We still pride ourselves on maintaining a unique approach with novel equipment and experimentation utilizing our scientific backgrounds.

Scientists by education and profession, we found it fascinating that people were searching for answers about the paranormal by attemting to use some scientific methods. We then started our research to lend our expertise in experimentation.

We seek other investigators with similar thoughts and ideas to collaborate with as well as offer some technical input for anyone who is in need. We want to learn and understand why potential paranormal events occur as well as help you understand.

We show respect to all buildings, locations, people, groups and spirits, never provoking or disallowing the beliefs of anyone.

We are always interested in connecting with other paranormal groups or local enthusiasts who have some experience. We are located in the Lower Hudson Valley in the vicinity of Nyack, NY.
