LOST AMUSEMENT PARKS OF THE HUDSON VALLEY

by Wesley and Barbara H. Gottlock

Released in May 2011.





The authors chronicle the rise and demise of amusement parks that lined the Hudson River from the turn of the twentieth century through the 1950s. Some of the parks covered include Electric Park at Kinderhook Lake, Woodcliff Pleasure Park in Poughkeepsie, Orange Lake Park in Newburgh, Indian Point Park in Buchanan, and the Fort George Amusement Park in northern Manhattan. The book contains about 160 photographs.

Both Barbara and Wes are still active volunteers with Bannerman’s Island. Wes is an island docent and coordinates all the public tours that come to the island. Barbara is also a docent in addition to being a board member and the island's coordinator of volunteers. They have presented nearly 80 Power Point lectures throughout the Hudson Valley in the last few years covering their books’ topics. In addition, they both participate in river clean-up projects and fundraisers benefiting various Hudson River causes. They also find enough time to spend with their two children and four grandchildren. Barbara and Wes reside in New Windsor overlooking the majestic Hudson River
