The NY Spare Seat
The team arrived in Niagara today in preparation for the 500 mile spare seat expedition from Niagara Falls to the Statue of Liberty. The route will be down the Eerie Canal, making a turn at the Hudson, and then into NYC. Our goal is to explore the area, meet the people and communities that make up this historic waterway and see who gets in the spare seat each and every day.
After arriving, we met up with Duncan, our NPS laison, and headed off for dinner at and learned an incredible amount about the history of the Canal. I think after our talk, we are even more excited than ever to get going. Back at the hotel, we took a quick stroll down to the falls, all bathed in the funky Canadian lights, it looked like a scene from Vegas with the brightly. Start day, Tuesday the 1st is rapidly approaching.
