“Designed by Olmstead, who created Central Park, our elevated Thompson Park overlooks the city. Plenty of green space to sit, play, relax, etc. There's also the Thompson Park Zoo, a Paranormal Vortex (Area 51), the brand new Fort Drum monument, stone walled walks and a great playground. Splashpad coming soon!”

“A beautiful golf course, pretty much in my backyard. The bar is cool and classy with good food options, a surprising beer selection, and a professional staff. The walk home takes about 30 seconds, which can't be beat.”
