Earth Day Rally Reminder

On Sunday, April 22, from noon to 2 p.m., there's to be a rally at Ernest R. Lasher Memorial Park, at the end of Anchorage Road in Germantown, to protest the fences Amtrak is proposing to erect along the river, to keep trespassers out of its right of way and at the same time limiting access to the river. The proposal, being made in the interest of public safety, would affect not only Germantown but Rhinebeck, Rhinecliff, Tivoli, Stockport, and Stuyvesant as well.

On his blog The Other Hudson Valley, Roger Hannigan Gilson investigates the plan and the push back to the plan: "River Rats Resist Amtrak Plan Limiting Hudson Access."

  1. In 1956 motor boaters on the eastern shore of the Faithful began paying for "better" access, we now pay 63 cents per gallon.

    Where is the feast we were promised?
