The Hudson River Monster or "Kipsy" is the name given to a reputed lake monster living in the Hudson River. There were a few witness sightings of "humps" or a "hump" and splashing in certain parts of the river. There is currently no scientific evidence for the cryptid's existence, although an unusually large Manatee was spotted in the river at various locations between Manhattan and Poughkeepsie in 2006. But rumors of a creature being seen started up again in 2008. There are still few accounts of something strange still lurking in the river. At this time however there had been no further research on the creature.
