REALNYS is a site by and for for like-minded landowners who are against Slick Water, High Volume Hydrofracturing (Fracking) of our lands to extract shale gas and oil. We are an ad hoc, grassroots group of community volunteer landowners from all over the state who have no agenda other than to protect our land and our future from the damages of fracking.
The founders are from Andes Works!, a small community group in Andes, NY that is dedicated to supporting sustainable economic development that strengthens rather than destroys our environmental and cultural resources.

And listen to Bill’s speech at the August 27th Anti Fracking rally in Albany, in front of over 1,000 like minded citizens. Use this link to listen to Bill’s speech.
On this site, we will gather and post information about the land and landowners of New York and will use it to boost our influence in the State. The gas companies claim that they are waiting to frack over 800,000 acres in New York owned by pro-fracking landowners. Can you help us stop them from destroying our beautiful state?
Please explore this site, feel free to comment, and if you agree with what we are trying to accomplish, fill out the Property Owners Form and help us keep our land and water safe.
