The D&R Canal State Park, I know it well. In fact I stopped there last week on my way back from Trenton delivering a proposal to the Historic Trust for funds to study expanding the trail system along the Morris Canal in Warren Co., so that my dog could stretch her legs. We then paused at that funky round diner just north of Washington Crossing for ice cream -- the soft stuff, which Abby likes best (if your dog is a Rottweiler, her preferences count).
Are all the Greek diners in New York gone??? That would be a tragedy. When I lived on East 26th St. in the early 80's there was one on the corner of my block that was wonderful. They did a crab stuffed bluefish for about $3.00 that was utter heaven, and cheap enough to indulge in frequently. But no, I never tasted the desserts.
