The interviews and filming at Untermyer Park was cancelled by the Travel Channel due to the extremely high permit fees to film at Untermyer Park.
I was contacted by someone from the Travel Channel regarding a show called Terrifying Places. They want to do a segment on Untermyer Park. They liked what I had here on the website and thought it would be cool to talk about the evidence we've acquired and about the ties to the Son of Sam.
A woman named Chandler spoke to me, Rich, and Xavier about the park. We will be meeting with her next week to possibly be interviewed for the show on camera. That would be interesting. We might even get to play acting extras for a reenactment. I will write another post, after our meeting next week to update you.
Who knows? We might be on TV in time for Halloween this year.
On Thursday, February 1, 2018, I will be interviewed on a podcast called Cave Crew Radio, which starts at 9pm eastern standard time. We will be discussing my latest book, The Manhattanville Incident: An Undead Novel and my team, Yonkers Ghost Investigators. Check it out!
Watch the Interview on YouTube!
I will be interviewed on a local radio station (WVOX 1460 AM) in New Rochelle on Monday, January 9, 2017, between the hours of 3-4pm. The show is called Westchester Eye on the Radio and it will be co-hosted by Ardina Seward. She's the one, who contacted me. She also interviewed me in the past. We will be discussing my book, Ghosts and Legends of Yonkers, and my team, Yonkers Ghost Investigators. I hope you will check it out. Thanks!
In an article from Westchester Magazine, the top 3 spookiest spots in Yonkers are listed as:
1. Untermyer Park
2. St. Joseph's Cemetery
3. The old P.S. 13.
The information came about from a brief interview conducted with myself. The article also mentions my book, Ghosts and Legends of Yonkers.

Kevin Phelan of The Journal News did an article about haunted locations in the Historic Lower Hudson River Valley. In this article he spoke to paranormal experts, such as author Linda Zimmermann, for an opinion on what places are most haunted, In that same article he also spoke to ME and mentioned the Yonkers Ghost Investigators! I gave him Untermyer Park, as the most haunted location in Yonkers. That is based on our investigations and evidence.
This is an excerpt from his article, where we are mentioned:
Ghosts of Yonkers
Founder and team leader of Yonkers Ghost Investigators, Jason Medina says Untermyer Park has a macabre history and is a great spot for paranormal enthusiasts:
"One place in Yonkers where we've gotten a decent amount of paranormal activity is Untermyer Park on North Broadway. We've gone there during the daytime and have gotten EVPs (electronic voice phenomenons — unexplained voices caught on tape), along with an image that appears to have an unexplained shadow figure. At night we've also recorded EVPs, especially at an old abandoned gatehouse located near the old carriage trail leading down to Warburton Avenue. It is said the notorious Son of Sam belonged to a cult that operated in this park during the late 1960s, until the late 1970s. Supposedly, they also sacrificed dogs here."

Recently I did an interview with Dina Sciortino, Editor-in-Chief of WestchesterWoman.org. She wanted to discuss my new book, Ghosts and Legends of Yonkers, as well as Yonkers Ghost Investigators. By the time we were done she decided to split our discussion into two separate stories. This is the first, which is about our team. It was a pleasure speaking with Dina and she did a fine job with the interview. Thanks for doing a great job, Dina!
