An old factory/processing building off a closed section of River Road, Town of Manheim, Herkimer County, outside the City of Little Falls, New York. The building lies next to active Railroad tracks and is quite tall. The top of the structure is about even with New York State Route 5.

"X" marks the spot: http://maps.yahoo.com/;_ylc=X3oDMTEx...3.036553&mag=1

The road goes off NYS Route 5 and then back onto it and is closed off in the middle with metal gates at each end of this middle portion; it's slowly falling into the Mohawk River. To get the building you have to climb up onto the railroad bed from a small parking area at the gate on the eastern side. You then have to walk along the bed for about 1/4 mile. As I was walking along I realize that I'm not alone. It really freaked me out at first. Two guys were sitting in lawn chairs on a large rock to my left. I had no idea that they were there until they were right above me. Then I hear a train whistle and a train appears. I talked to the guys after the train finished passing. They were photographers and were intrigued as I guess I was. I could see all their equipment; lots of long lenses, etc. Must have gotten some nice shots from their vantage point. In one of the attached photos, you can see the two guys, the train, and the building to the right of the train. After I left River Road I headed to NYS Route 169 and took a photo from directly across the Mohawk River.

I need to return when the foliage is gone. It really blocked a lot of the details.

An old house with some meaning

On a recent ride, I found an old house that has some real meaning to me. It's the house I was born in. Well, not really. I was born in a hospital, but this is where I lived my first 4 years.



The fireplace was built by my Grandpa and my uncle when they first bought the place. They built it with stones gathered out of the field. Then my family moved in when dad got out of the Airforce


Later in the ride I went to the home that my Great Great grandfather built, and the home that my Grandpa was literally born in. It burned down in 1975.

That must have been a strange experience. Do you have vivid memories of the house?

Found this old place on a spring bike ride 2007. Went inside through back door. Very creepy...cold, damp, and dark shadows...the hairs on both of my arms stood up the whole time I was inside.

I don't really have many memories of that house at all. Just the stories I've been told.
