The Goodyear family donated some of their land on the shore of Otsego Lake to Glimmerglass Opera and also to SUNY Oneonta as a field station. The GoodYear Swamp Sanctuary is open to the public dawn to dusk. There are five acres of wetlands with developed trails and boardwalks and a guide book available at the trail head sign in.
A New Hike, Bike, and Ski Trail
in Old Forge
There's a new trail that takes you from the village of Old Forge (trail head just behind the school) to the McCauley Mountain Ski Area. This trail is for hiking, biking and cross country skiing. It takes you along an old tow path used by downhill skiers in the 1930s & 40s, before the McCauley Mountain was established. You can see some old downhill ski equipment along your hike, like an old truck that was retrofitting with a shive to tow skier up the hill so they could ski back into town. Die-hard skier would hike beyond the tow hill to McCauley, carrying their skis on their backs.

When we heard that Fred Castronovo was retiring, we thought we would talk with him and look back over his career as a businessman in East Utica. Owner of Castronovo's Original Grimaldi's Restaurant, Fred's first love is cars. The famous Utica Flash dragster is still a popular discussion, not only in Utica, but also with classic race car enthusiasts online.
When Fred says he's retiring, he's serious -everything's for sale. So if you'd like to be a restauranteur, body shop owner, or driver of a classic Barracuda or Buick, give him a call.

This week we thought it would be fun to take a tour of Oneida Street. The funny thing is, we've been up and down Oneida St. dozens of times this year and yet, until we took the time to slow down and take a closer look, we didn't realize all the fascinating people and places there were to visit! We also didn't realize all the great food along that route either!
