 Not nearly as grand as the other stuff... but these are local(ish) historical places and state parks. (larger pics are linked to save space)

 

 

 

Fort Griswold (Groton, CT - site of the Battle of Groton Heights, after which Benedict Arnold burned the city of New London across the river)

 And most of these places have been either the site of strange things allegedly happening or have been rumored to be haunted... ::D:

Every time we take the Twentieth Century Limited* to or from New York City the trip up and down the Hudson River Valley is amazing.

 

The first time I spotted the massive ruin on the island it went by too fast for me to take snapshots.

 

Every trip after I've been prepared and have some blurry shots of it out the train window.  It's called "Bannerman Castle", apparently.

 

Here are some far, far better pictures than mine:

*Okay, technically it's now the "Lakeshore Limited".  Call me a romantic fool.

That's how I think of it also...it just conjures up a better, more romantic image of the train. If you're going to be a fool, being a romantic one is the way to go.

I didn't know you were an Upstate New Yorker. I was a Long Islander for all but the last few years...small World, eh?

One of my friend's daughters has been to Pripyat and Chernobyl. Of all things, she went on a photography vacation. I'll have to see if I can find the site with the pictures again. Edited by Mattnuke

Not bad for a place built to store military surplus for Bannerman's business.
