A walk to the past on Crow Lane


“Always wanted to sleep out there — never did. Picking blueberries and wild berries. Target shooting with Dad. Riding our bikes out to the pasture.

“It is sad that beautiful area is not known to the public for nature walks, cleaned up and made accessible.

“I know it was a lover’s lane, drinking, hang-out place to throw trash not allowed in the dump.

“It has been years since I have been down there as it hurts to see how neglected it has come to be.

“Bill just brought back some very fond memories of my childhood. Thanks the memories.

“There are still some undeveloped land in this city that should not go unnoticed.

“Betty Cooper Mason Amirault — always a country girl living in a city.”

*NAID no longer owns the Low Street meadow that is likely to be the major access to the Crow Lane preserve. B.P.
