That Small Town Charm

Pine Bush is a small town in size, but not in heart. Especially in recent times, we have seen how wonderful our community is in times of need. Many times now I've seen the townspeople rally together to help their neighbor. They go above and beyond, and it's just a wonderful thing to see and be a part of.

Aliens and UFO's

Pine Bush is the UFO Capital of NY!

Pine Bush has been knows as an alien hot spot for a long time.

There have been hundreds of UFO sightings, and many stories of abductions and encounters.

These stories and experiences are swapped at the monthly meetings.
