Empire Line . . .

is that a rail service?

A fashion design?

You’ve seen Erie Canal posts

on this blog many, many times.

Erie Canal.

I grew up near that canal

and have played and worked on it

in different capacities.

Last fall, I biked along the canal

from Tonawanda to Waterford,

and because of the isolation of the past year,

posted virtual bike and boat tour guides.

People from many countries

have transited the Erie Canal;

people from even more countries

know of this iconic waterway.

A friend told of visiting

a classroom in China

and seeing a map there

that showed the Erie Canal.
