After getting off the ferry, we ride along the swampy northern edge of Staten Island as we visit The Blazing Star Cemetery /Dead Pool. The Cemetery is the final resting place of some of Staten Island's oldest families - Seguines and Poillons, not to mention the decomposing boats. We then cut across the heart of Staten Island and visit the community of Prince's Bay. We will check out Lemon Creek Park, osage orange trees planted by Frederick Law Olmstead, see the peacocks at Seguine Mansion, and visit the spooky abandoned Manee-Seguine Homestead. We will also head to the beach for some great water views and the "Totten Pole." We come back along Arbutus Lake, where the 1% lives, and climb the hill up to Fort Wadsworth, where we will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the Harbor. Lunch will be at 5BBC Favorite - Killmeyers.
Bring - Lock, Spare Tubes, Lights, Snacks and a thirst for exploration. We are meeting at 9:45 and taking the 10:00 Ferry. Hope that you can join us.
