Doug's Hometown of Croton-on-Hudson
I lived in Croton-on-Hudson, New York for
the first 10 years of my life. I have great memories of living
in this suburb village that is about 50 miles north of New York City.
My father would commute to the big city each morning by train. Since moving
to Florida in 1977, I have had the opportunity to visit Croton-on-Hudson
four times. The first time was around 1979 when my father took
the family to a funeral of his best friend in NY, and we then had a chance
to briefly visit Croton-on-Hudson and see my closest friends. The second
time was after I graduated from high school in 1984 and I visited my
best friend from elementary school, Chris Williams. The third time was
with my mom and brother Brad in 1998, just prior to traveling to the
country of Portugal for business with GTE (now Verizon). The fourth
time was in 2003 when I was sent to Utica, NY for Verizon to be available
to help out just in case the Union workers were to strike. Since they
did not strike, I had the opportunity to visit my hometown during one of those
days with a co-worker, Tom Bee. It is always nice to stroll down memory
