November Field Trip: Irvington Area

November 20, 2021 at 10 am

On Saturday morning, November 20, at 10:00 am, Al will lead a field trip to photograph a deserted house in Irvington, NY.

We will meet at a nearby parking lot, then walk about a 1/4 mile to the house.

He anticipates spending about an hour photographing the house, then going for a walk/hike along the trails of the Taxter Ridge Park Preserve. That walk will be followed by lunch at the nearby El Dorado Diner.

There are many trip hazards in the house area and on the trail, so please wear sturdy shoes.
