Civilian Saucer Intelligence of New York (CSINY, also known as Civilian Saucer Intelligence Group) was a New York-based ufology organisation, established in 1954 by Isabel Davis, Ted Bloecher, Lex Mebane, and others. The group published a membership periodical entitled "CSI News Letter" from 1956 to 1959 under Mebane's editorial direction.
C.S.I. of New York - despite sharing the name - was only loosely affiliated with Civilian Saucer Intelligence of Los Angeles; however, it was reportedly the recipient of the LA group's research files when they disbanded.
