The Travels of Tug 44

Erie Canal - Old Lock 10
Cohoes, NY

Lock 10 was also a double lock built in 1842, but now nothing is left but the wreckage of one of the walls. It's located in George Street Park, in Cohoes, NY.

Below the lock (south) the canal bed continues, looking like a rather nice golf course.

Just above the lock (north) is the George Street Park's gazebo, conveniently located so I could sit out a sudden thunder storm there. The stones in front of the gazebo were originally part of the lock.
