– a different kind of Labor Day at Collins Park (L) and on Washington Ave. –
– as always, click on a photo for a larger version and scroll over it for a description –
– even with the flood gone, the geese had Collins Park to themselves this Labor Day –
On the Stockade side of the Mohawk,
– 1 Cucumber Alley needed a lot of attention after the floodwaters receded –
My heart once again goes out to all those whose homes were damaged and treasures destroyed by the swollen waters of the Mohawk River. The detritus of Irene’s floodwaters could be seen along the curbs and beside the homes of the Stockade and throughout Riverside Park.
– tree debris under playground equipment in Riverside Park –
– a Riverside Park flower planter has already bounced-back beautifully –
And, Labor Day is about transitions, too:
Taking down that sign surely means a new era for the storefront on the corner of Front and N. Ferry Streets. I hope removal of the sign shows the new proprietors are actively preparing to open their market in the very near future. A thriving market will be a plus for our neighborly Village.
