The site of the annual summertime Riverlink Concert Series, Riverlink Park in Amsterdam became part of the Mohawk River during last week’s visit from Tropical Storm Irene.
Fortunately, the new bandshell did not become airborne nor did it float away, although the dock was damaged and a storage shed floated in from somewhere upstream.
Thank Cod the water level has receded, or this place might have gotten a reputation as a real dive. Hard enough for a musician to tune a guitar, let alone tuna fish. A bass player could have a hard time with the scales. Oh, quit your carping, and don’t be crabby. Don’t be shellfish, and please help out with local relief efforts.
