List of people executed in New York

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of individuals executed in New York gives the names of some of the individuals executed in New York, both before and after statehood in the United States (including as New Amsterdam), as well as the individual's date of execution, method of execution, and the name of the Governor of New York at the date of execution. 1963 marked the last execution in New York State. Some executions recorded during the 17th and 18th centuries do not indicate the name(s) of the executed and are not, therefore, included herein.
