After 2 days at plus 90 degrees in the sixth boro, I’m recalling January on the Mohawk with fondness.

The coolest place I experienced today was NOT air-conditioned . Floating on the sixth boro, it had this interior space toward the southwest

and that to the northeast. Cooled by cross ventilation, I sat there and took in all there was to see from an Adirondack guideboat to ships’ bells and stevedores’ handtools . . . Where is this?

it’s the Waterfront Museum in Red Hook, a mere hundred yards from Ingvar Kamprad’s new store, which should never have been built where it stands, IMHO.

Cross the threshold into this 1914 barge and these bells and others welcome you.
