Postcards From Ten Mile River ~ John Harvey Remembers When

Thank you, John Harvey, for taking the Yorkville radio listeners back to 1910 Brooklyn and Queens Village in the 1960s. Your grandfather's letters to the Daily News were crisp photos triggering memories for people, places and things past.

Here are a few postcards from my time at Ten Mile River when I was a Boy Scout and visited the reservation in Narrowsburg, New York.

John Harvey, a Ten Mile River alumni, said he earned his One Mile Swim merit badge while the guy trailing him in the canoe who was suppose to protect him, kept hitting him in the head with an oar.

If you like, listen to the 10.19.10 radio show with John Harvey at the archive link below.
