New York Travel: A Visit to Albany
On September 2 we drove out of Brooklyn via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and had a relaxing drive through New Jersey into Upper New York State. We stopped near New Paltz to play a round of golf at the scenic Apple Greens Golf Club and arrived in the late afternoon back in Troy where we checked in at the Olde Judge Mansion for another two nights.
