Erie Canal - Old Lock 22
Rexford, NY

Is that a nice looking sidewalk crossing the parking lot at Schenectady Yacht Club and vanishing into the bushes? Nope, that's Old Erie Canal Lock 22! It's mostly buried, and top of the walls are just barely visible. Off into the bushes the lock is above ground, but the brush is so thick that it can't really be seen.

Side view of the "sidewalk" on the lower end of the lock. The lock is about 50 yards north-east of the Rexford Aqueduct.
