The geohash is between the northbound and southbound lanes of the Palisades Parkway. Speed Racer Geohash it is!

[edit] Expedition

Or not! While a location on the median of a highway practically begs for a high-speed geohash, doing so without a co-pilot to photograph an actual GPS device takes the fun out of it.

Besides, as it turns out, the offramp that lay so close to the geohash led to the Alpine Lookout, from which one can partake of a scenic view of the Alps Yonkers, New York. Okay, it's not the Ginza or Times Square, but it would have been an ideal spot to watch Sully land that plane on the Hudson back in January.

It also gave be a nice place to park while I dashed across the road to the median and made funny faces at the camera, probably disturbing any number of mundanes as they drove north toward . . . whatever is north of there (sorry, I put the map away.)

I was not able to contact or meet up with Brandon, who was available for Thursday's geohash but not until much later than I could stay.

After taking photos, I headed down the Turnpike to Linden, my old home town . . . . 2009-06-06 40 -74
