Memories on the Hudson

I was born in Peekskill, New York, and grew up and went to grammar school in Buchanan. I graduated from Hendrick Hudson High in Montrose, and attended the Academy of Aeronautics in Queens (I was an “airplane nut”). My cousin Henry “got me a job” at IBM, in Poughkeepsie. I got married, moved, and raised a family in Wappingers Falls. I attended Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie. I hiked and climbed in the Hudson Highlands, Catskills, and Adirondacks, and Kath and I boated and canoed all up and down the mighty Hudson River for decades from the Adirondacks to Manhattan.
