Do you remember hearing about the NYC UFO Tugboat Abduction of 1977? No? You're not alone. Luckily for us a new documentary has been created to remember it, and a monument has been erected in Battery Park.
This memorial statue at Battery Park stands in loving remembrance of the vanished crew of the Tugboat Maria 120, who vanished on the night of July 13, 1977, while investigating what appeared to be a private aircraft crash on New York Harbor. It is an ever-present symbol to the families of the missing that they are not forgotten an a reminder to us all that.........we are not alone....
Of course, none of this actually happened. It's all park of an ongoing prank series from Staten Island sculpture artist Joe Reginella that included previous stunts such as the Staten Island Octopus Disaster and the Brooklyn Bridge Elephant Stampede.
Check out NYC UFO Encounter for more on the stunt. It's great to see gullible tourists snapping photos with the monument.
