Digging in the Basement and Where Are We (Part Three)

The sun dawned on a lovely day...to work in the basement.  We did an errand first, dropped our Element Toad at the Honda dealer, the back brakes were grinding out expensive noi$e$.  Of course, handily, the Cracker Barrel restaurant is practically next door, so we availed ourselves of some tasty vittles.

Then it was back to the house and down to the dungeon (basement) and we dug in.  We discovered many long forgotten treasures and re-opened some memories of happy times in our lives.  We do have a large pile of trash and boxes that our grandsons, Andrew and Owie will help us carry upstairs to take to the dump next week.

Another step forward in our full time preparations.

Now for Laurie & George and Bigdawg & Freeway, you both guessed New York City.  Bigdawg, you even said that George Washington is standing in front of Federal Hall in NYC.  Guess what Bigdawg, you're right but you're WRONG! :co

While George Washington does stand in front of Federal Hall in NYC by the NY Stock Exchange, the George Washington I pictured is not that George.  And to think you were already tasting those Chocolate Cheerios!

Barbara, you think those horses look familiar?  We'll have to see.  Syl, we lived in NYC for over three years on Governors Island, an island in NY Harbor right off the tip of Manhattan, just across from the Statue of Liberty.  Believe me when I say Times Square on New Years Eve is the LAST place you'll ever find us!

Now for some more clues:





Good luck to you all.  If nobody guesses correctly, the location will be revealed in the next post.
