About the Cover

Written by

Coming of Age on the Hudson Volume I: In Which I Make Several Attempts to Float from Albany to Manhattan Between 2006 and 2010, and in the Process, Become a Citizen and a Man

There is no more interesting character than “Dallas” whom I have featured on the cover for September.

Back in 2005, Dallas began his quest to build a raft, out of the most impossible junk you have ever seen, and float it down the Hudson River to New York City. As I looked into all this nonsense and saw the following that he had developed, I began to realize that this was more than just adventure.

Seastreak to The Shore

Written by

30SeaStreaktotheShore

Manhattan was melting on a mid July morning and I was escaping to the cool water and breezes of Sandy Hook National Park.

It was an easy, ten-minute walk from Grand Central Terminal to the Seastreak Pier at 34th St on the East River. There I caught the ferry at 8:45 AM, which got me the early bird special. The rate was thirty dollars round trip. Later trips from the same location cost forty six dollars round trip. Children under 5 ride free and fewer than 12 at reduced rates.

YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS PROPERTY TO BELIEVE IT !

26YouHavetoSeeIttoBelieveIt

An opportunity like no other! A beautifully, well-built restaurant situated on the banks of the Hudson River in Athens, NY. This stunning turn key operation is the chance of a lifetime. The relationship between Hudson and Athens is key to the success of anyone who purchases this waterfront dream. While it may be the “Local’s”, who are the main customers of this restaurant, it is the tourists and regular out of town visitors, who will continue to grow the market. Promoting this tourism effort is greatly supported by the “very active” Greene County Tourism Agency.

Let’s Make The Hudson Great Again

Written by

13LetsMaketheHudsonGreatAgain

I don’t like the way the Hudson River is characterized in the media. Should we disparage the river as a dirty toxic dump? I don’t think so. I grew up in New Baltimore, about a mile uphill from the Hudson. My dad and I used to take a walk to the river every March, and watch the icebergs flow south after the wind had warmed the air.

Playing It Safe

Back in the day a long time ago all we had for tubes to tow behind a boat were those black
inner tubes. We used a regular ski line, chafed our entire body and had to make sure the tube was over inflated otherwise it would drag through the water. We also had to make sure the valve stem was pointed down!
