Ahhh.... that's why i didn't find it! I only looked in New York City for the tag.


(You know, there's like FIVE golf courses in NYC! Yet, not one OHV park. Fuckers.)

New Tag

Fact meets fiction at this tag, could this really be the final resting place of Constable Crane??

For your bonus shot I want to see his tombstone

I know some of you guys whine when the tags not on your doorstep, but this one is for the fellow Bridge & Tunnel guys, and the more adventurous Big Apple riders



Clue (when the link is working)

The New Tag!!!

Thanks! Neat tag! And it had to be early morning. It was the Sonrise Church, for goodness sake!

Now, enough with the carefully researched tags. Here's a PC quality roadside attraction for The New Tag:







Ideally, it should be gotten by a Harley rider.....Pirates, you know!

And the clues:
1. On UXC's night ride route (that's where I first saw it).
2. The dragon's name is TODT!
3. The location is the highest natural point in the five boroughs of New York City and the highest elevation on the entire Eastern Seaboard from Florida to Cape Cod.

P.S., thought it was an appropriate tag, since people think my license plate is short for dragons (instead of DrGnzo)!

People stopping to gawk/take pictures of that place is why the neighbors have so many issues with the owner and have tried to get the "attractions" removed. But hey, the guy likes what he likes

Coming from a country that considers a miniature plastic gnome in your garden a bit wacky, I am drawn by a strange fascination to gardens like this, like looking at a horticultural train wreck.

New tag
In the adjacent borough to the previous tag, This mini museum is dedicated to preserving the pop culture icons the owner grew up loving.

At least one inmate will know it well, about 10 yards down the road I spotted what looked liked a black Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Adventure with Alu panniers and ADV sticker.

Nice get, Jerry!

Here's an article about the crazy place (It's a woman from the Ukraine, Walter!):
http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/2012...-fantasy-world

It's located on Todt Hill Road, right across from the Staten Island Academy, if anyone wants to go get a bruce. And for Jesse's map.

It was kinda bizarre seeing that in the wee-hours light wasn't it Doc?

Sure was! But it had "Big Apple Tag" written all over it! Glad I got a glimpse of the Staten Island Academy across the street so that I could find it again.

And the tunnel at the beginning..... Wouldn't that make a great NY Metro dirt tag? Want to help me place it?

No more hints, please. This is findable.
