Photo take just easy of Pompey, NY.
When I was a kid, Route 20 was superseded by the Thruway, Interstate 90. Many businesses suffered from the severe lack of traffic after the Thruway’s construction in the 1960s. Route 20 was one of the more dangerous routes to take in the winter. The route loops up and down through some of the most rural and hilliest places in Upstate New York.
Today, there’s a revitalization movement to generate interest in the old route. I always liked Route 20, the scenery is terrific and there are many unusual and interesting things to see along the pike. But in the winter, I take 90.
