I intend to go on two of thne local rivers and inner tube. We have huge swift rivers in NYC . The Arthur Kill is way too poluted and I would not recomend trying it in the Gowanus Canal.
I also am going to try and get a look at the local waterfalls if possible. There is a small waterfall on the Bronx river and I have seen a few in Upstate New York. I will try to hunt down the covered bridges.
My lack of direction is somewhat legendary and exagerated. I will be taking a local guide and will try to post pictures. If I can not do it I will send the pictures to my nephew at Nicotine and Rock.
The locals have also promised to plug a Canada Goose in the fall . I will inform my fellow NYC residents on how our parks pests taste. Vermonters would never allow heir parks to be over run by fowl , especially good tasting ones.
Every day is a new adventure and it is a blast up here. I have gone from dreaming about supermodels to dreaming about Knishes and good pickles. I miss my fellow NYC residents except for the crowd in Union Square. It is fun to debate foriegn policy with cabbies and discuss literature. Yet a smile from the heart is the most sedetious and subversive thing. The smiles and the people here are genuine. I will return home soon but part of me will always miss St Albans.
