To get to my job in Manhattan, I travel 60 miles from my house in Newburgh. It’s not a short commute, but it is a pleasant one (most of the time), and I don’t need to use a car. The first part of my daily trip takes me across the Hudson River on a ferry. I get to do this on the way home, too. It’s a pretty great way to start and end the day.
Looking south, I can see Bannerman Castle off in the distance. Later, on the train, I go right past it.
