Allow me to present the town of Owego, NY, from earlier this autumn. Owego is about 20 minutes west of Binghamton, where I went to university, and is one of my old haunts from those days. Back then it had a really wonderful cafe, and great used bookstore, a art supply shop, and one of the loveliest historic districts I’ve seen in the northeast.
Unfortunately, shortly after I moved to PA the Susquehanna River – you can see it and the big bridge just behind the town – flooded, and Owego took a lot of damage. I hear that the bookstore is open again, and there are a few new restaurants now. We were passing through the area and got to spend a little time there, although not as much as I would have liked.
But I did make a point to visit the cemetery, which is where I took this photo – it has an amazing view out across the town and river and the light is especially nice late in the day like this.
