Lock 62 is an original Erie Canal lock that was abandoned when the canal was re-routed in the early 20th century. It is now a Pittsford town park accessible by footpath.
Today I rode the Bumblebeemer out to Jordan, in the Western end of Onondaga County. Jordan was on the original Erie Canal and had an aqueduct that carried the canal over Skaneateles (pronounced “skinny atlas”, really) Creek. There’s also an abandoned lock, 51, West of the village. Jordan was once a booming canal town but when the canal was rerouted in the early 20th century, Jordan lost it’s lifeblood. It’s a quiet little village now.
