A Beautiful Mohawk Valley View

I've enjoyed the view here for many years in every season, and I thought I would share these 2 photos with you of the view from Val Bialas in Utica, NY., because they are photos that encompass much of the character and heritage of the Mohawk Valley. You can see much more this time of the year because the foliage blocks much of the view in the summer months until the foliage drops. The churches, the brewery, schools, psych ctr, farms and homes that can be seen from these 2 photos, are an incredible snapshot of our area.

How many landmarks can you identify?

Whitesboro Middle School Haunted?

Took these photos recently as I have been interested in learning more about some of the more unusual attractions in the Mohawk Valley with the Whitesboro Middle School being one. One story goes that Whitesboro Middle School-
Clock tower is haunted by a decapitated football player. Who can be seen wearing his jersey while holding his head. Anyone has a different version...let me know?
