A little on Mohonk

February 9, 2010
Mohonk

So I was tipped off that some show I’d never heard of (“Anthony Bordain: No Reservations”) which had an episode partly focusing on Mohonk and New Paltz… Mohonk is pretty much my favorite place ever. The show ran on the Travel Channel and features a lot of the Hudson River valley, including afternoon tea at Mohonk. And Bill Murray. Amazing.

But anyway, Mohonk is an incredible place, one which I have spent many days with great people. And I’ve taken a few photos there and created this book of some of my favorite photos.

To see more of my photos of Mohonk (besides buying my book), you can check them out here on Flickr.

In other news, consider this a little plug for my story that ran today on MiLB.com about the relationship between Minor League teams and old Negro League clubs. February is Black History Month and I really enjoyed digging up some facts and stories for this feature that highlights one of the most famed Negro League teams of the 20th century, the Birmingham Black Barons, who played at Rickwood Field, the oldest ballpark in America.

Hey if you have any suggestions and requests for stuff I should showcase here on the blog, leave me a note and let me know! I could do Mohonk everyday…
