Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
As life slowly returns to normal, July still remains the month for all things water.....your editor and the elves are happy to report that folks were out and about---fishing, boating, kayaking...
Click on the photos and links.
From Verplanck to the Croton River to Oyster Bay.....here's a few snaps....a gorgeous day with just enough heat and sunshine.
First up, the lake at the Verplank Preserve was home to over a dozen young fisherfolk this morning. If you haven't been there, this little gem really shines in all the seasons. While winter remains our favorite, the reflections were outstanding earlier today. For more about the Verplank Nature Preserve and Trails, click here. Pair a Verplanck morning with a Dunkin Donuts Iced Macchiato from right here in town and you are in heaven....
Yes, there have been some issues along the Croton River but with access limited along this corridor, parking severely cut back, etc., last year's problems have indeed been somewhat abated. At least for the moment.
Kayakers have returned, along with herons, egrets, summer bird migrants, etc. Click on the photo for an outstanding view......

Both Oyster Bay and the Hudson River at Verplanck into Peekskill was home to a Trump boat rally today.......about 150 boats on Oyster Bay and about 70 in the Hudson River area. There were also reports of a flotilla of about fifty boats near the Bear Mountain Bridge area.
By the way, for those who follow the recovery of the Atlantic Sturgeon, and the eventual re-opening of the New York Aquarium--home to a sturgeon exhibit, click here for an update.
Also what appears to be some good news---Lake Meahagh was recently treated for invasive aquatic weeds and is looking quite pristine at the moment. You can read the most recent update on all this from the Town of Cortlandt here.
