This is my first effort to post a "caching" topic as I understnd it. My Historic location and view is here.

First Clue: In USA and Location of Famous Happening

Image A painting. I had lunch on a Park bench there often, peaceful and quiet.

Second Clue: Beautiful View of a World Famous City.

Duel between Pres. Alexander Hamilton and VP Aaron Burr. Alexander Hamilton lost his life after the duel. Took place July 11, 1804 in Weehawken, NJ... Another Weehawken View... GCKRMN. Do I win a fishing trip somewhere warm? Wink

Good job, the location is Weehawken on Blvd East from West New York NJ. There is this Sign Plaque.

Photo taken with "Brownie Box Camera"... 1947 ..it was snowing and the Park bench is still there. I love this game. At the bottom of this cliff is the Lincoln Boat Harbor.

Image Privately owned boats fish the Hudson River regularly up stream in the Shad season.

HISTORIC LOCATION PART TWO

i HAVE POSTED IN THIS TOPIC FORMAT because of the interest you have shown... My next Location might take a little Cliff Climbing Experience. Which I have done as a teenager.

CLUE ONE: In the news today because of construction at the top of these Cliffs. The VIEW is "For Sale" for Luxury Homes.

Image

A road is there now and the photo has a clue of its location .. I went swimming there. No kidding. ... View of the Cliffs being worked on.

Image WOW! ...

No... wrong bridge .. I wouldn't swim in those waters today... but I did then. When there was a beach there.
Added photo clue:
Image

The Club house building still there and used by thousands of visitors every year. This a famous East Coast Site. Love this game. Question ... Question ...

ok...2nd try...thought this one would have been solved by the time I got back from Milwaukee...had a cup of TAZO Zen tea for possible "enlightenment"...possibly former "Hudson River Bridge" = George Washington Bridge, New Jersey side, Fort Lee, Palisades, Hudson River swimming?, you possibly camped on Englewood Cliff's at the crest of the Palisades at Fort Lee before the British were coming? wink
