Easter eve stroll



Shortly before sunset this evening, April 11, I headed out with my camera for a little pandemic exercise I call my evening stroll. It started along the Mohawk River at Cucumber Alley, went through Riverside Park, down a few Stockade blocks, and up to the corner of Union Street and Erie Boulevard, where our Lady Liberty replica statue has been exiled.

Along the way, I saw cattails, the new pump station’s construction site on the west lawn of Riverside Park, an early display of cherry blossoms on N. Ferry near Union Street, a crowded window sill of Easter fun, and one more bit of disrespect for Lady Liberty at her deplorable location.




. . Hi, Stockade expatriate Linda M., in Hawaii! “Your” N. Ferry Street house is still cute.

They are almost here! Soon, glorious Stockade cherry blossoms. This tree on the Union Street end of N. Ferry has started the show.

. . finally, a sight easy to love for decades . .


p.s. I was along the River just before and just after the time when there might have been a more impressive sunset.  The collage below is my favorite set of Easter Eve Sunset photos, from the rear of 10-16 Washington Avenue, here in the Stockade, in 2016.
