Nice! However, who is going to quarantine those geese when they return to Canada?
😂 I couldn't believe how much they pooped around the reservoirs' shore! Was shuddering to think how much might be in the "Reservoir"! Good riddance to them when they go away. Our gift to Canada to poop in their lakes 😁

Excerpt from The Ballad of Billy (Joel) The Kid-From a town known as Oyster Bay Long Island...There it is!
I bet it looks a bit different from Billy Joel's time, let along Billy the Kid.
Glad to see you are getting out and around. I'm enjoying my virtual tour of the NYC area as I try to look up your various travel destinations on maps. Looks like we are going to have a nice fall; happy riding.

What do you know about Schitt's Creek, Canada?
Not much more than others who discovered it after it cleaned up at the Emmy's. CBC wanted to call it "up a Creek". Daniel levy asked if they would try to rename a news story if it were about a person named "Schitt" to which they replied "No". He then found several people with that name so the government broadcaster made a mockery of George Carlin's 7 words you can't say on radio (or tv). Apparently they added a copy of the logo whenever the title was published.... that died out pretty quickly.
Eugene Levy, well know for SCTV and many of his movied (American Pie) supported his son, Daniel who was the originator and co-star. His daughter also acts in teh series, as well as Catherine O'hara.
No actual site called Schitt's Creek, unless you want to consider the town where the program was filed (Goodwood, Ont, just a bit north east of Toronto - - how's that for a town name too?).

I couldn't "overlook" of the NYC skyline from across Oyster Bay from Glen Cove (again)

Some views from Coney Island Brooklyn on a cloudy and cool Sunday at the end of October, included is the Steeplechase parachute jump (250 ft. tall) the parachutes were removed about 60 years ago-I was too young to attempt a jump without parents-The iron horse is an option as a few subway lines have first/last stops here, Sandy Hook New Jersey and a cargo ship in the distance and Nathan's during the pandemic of 2020.
