Where This Meets That
Last week, my job took me to a delightful village in upstate New York, called Owego (not to be confused with Oswego, which is located further upstate).
This was my first trip to New York, and while I look forward to one day seeing Manhattan, I’m glad I got to see this side of the state first.
I was only there for a short stay, but I was so charmed by the place that I seized an opportunity to stroll around and capture some pictures. Hope you enjoy!
Just outside the village is a historic district of beautiful old homes.
I spoke with the elderly gentlemen who owns the home with the round porch pictured below. His grandfather built it in 1899, and the man living there now was actually born there.
I loved the way this Japanese Maple complemented this charming gingerbread-style home.
The below home had “Americana” written all over it!
An abandoned old home provided great B&W material.
Nestled between the Susquehanna River and the Catskill Mountains, the area is rich in scenery.
In 2011, a tropical storm swelled the river some 16 feet above normal and flooded the village. As you can see below, the river offered only serene beauty during my visit.
Yankee-style small town charm runs deep in Owego, New York. Definitely a place I’d love to revisit with my wife one day.
