River Connection

The Clearwater, launched 51 years ago by Pete Seeger, docked at Cold Spring on Friday (June 26) as part of a journey from Albany to New York City to demonstrate that “our river connects us.” Due to stormy weather, the sloop tarried in the village a day longer than planned, but by Wednesday, it had reached Yonkers. At the Cold Spring stop, the crew invited children to touch a river eel.
