Yesterday my brother and I went to downtown Newburgh, NY to visit the Velocipede museum, which is a museum of bicycles. It's an offshoot of the MotorcyclePedia museum but is much smaller...and only one of the three floors is currently open as they work to install a sprinkler system in the vintage building dating to 1922.
It's a great museum, but it's very small. The MotorcyclePedia museum took 3 visits to see everything where this museum took less than an hour, but I'm still glad I got to go to it...which is not easy since it's only open on Fridays from 10-3. Not a lot of time, but since my brother had off of work, we ventured out, even though it was black Friday, although the roads were not particularly crowded.
(Sorry the pictures came first blogger is not acting right)
This is the left side of the museum
Now, here are some pictures from Newburgh. Newburgh used to be a very beautiful city, you can tell, but it's not well maintained and in fact several of the buildings we drove past I recognized from the news covering shootings within the past week. Yikes.
This is a small unnamed stream in my hometown of Wappingers Falls. I rarely get a good look at it but the traffic lights worked in my favor today (or yesterday by time you see this) Sorry for the odd placement but again, blogger is acting weird today.
Thanks for reading.
