Hudson Point

Up in Perimont NY, at the end of Ferry road sits this long pier that juts out in to the Hudson. So far, in fact, that you can hear Yonkers across the river. I'd blame that phenomena mostly on the fact that the area was blanketed with dense fog that reduced visibility to less than a hundred feet, and the amount of moisture in the air allows sound to travel more efficiently.... yeah so my point is that we heard stuff that's far away. The pier at the end is dedicated to the untold numbers of American servicemen and women who took ferries from here to fight overseas. The place must be beautiful during the warmer months, but the low visibility and no living plant life gave it a little creepy aura about it. Other than that, it's really a great place to go to, and I'm glad that we went.
