This past week was our annual "Summer Vacation", and this time we decided to take a trip up North from the Catskills to Niagara Falls New York, for a few days.
Now, I have to tell you that I'm New York City born and bred, tall building jaded, Fifth Avenue un-impressed and so on and so forth. I mean I was born here guys and have been making the daily trip to Manhattan since 1972 when I started High School. So what do you expect? This is my "small town" and I've been all over it for almost 52 years. No, I never moved here from anywhere else, because there is "no" anywhere else to me.
Oh, but Niagara Falls, let me tell you that's something to check out one day if New York City has jaded you. I mean not even opening up the "Johnny Pump" in front of Freddie's house on East Fourth made that much water. This thing was gushing like a son of a gun and even big old Ron Lopez felt as tiny as a bug while standing next to it.
Yes, Niagara Falls, write it down on your "Bucket List" and check it out someday. Because there's nothing like it here in New York City or even Kensington Brooklyn.
