New Feature: Summer Road Trip with Chuck D’Imperio
Asa published Syracuse University Press author it will be my pleasure to drop in on this blog every couple of weeks to share with you some of my stories and travels around New York from my latest book Monumental New York! (SUP). This really was a fun book to research and write. My travels took me from one end of New York (lower Hudson Valley) to the other (the High Peaks of the Adirondacks). Plus of course a fascinating journey through the Finger Lakes and on out to Western New York. Really, what a breathtaking state we are blessed to have in New York!
My specialty is monuments! My book takes an extensive look at some of the most interesting monuments, statues and memorials found throughout Upstate New York. They celebrate an astounding pageant of history (both national and state) and are touchstones to some of the most famous and infamous personalities to ever trod the forests, fields and city streets of the Empire State. I hope you enjoy my vignettes, all taken from my new book.
When next we visit we will meet a little girl, her horse named “Star” and an incredible monument created by one of America’s most famous female sculptors.
