My Itinerant Self

-

Hello readers of the world!

My name is Josh Goldstein and I am a senior in high school. I currently reside in New Jersey, but throughout my life, I have been to many places throughout the United States and the world! In other words, I am a big fan of traveling to different places. While tourism is the largest industry in the world, traveling to and touring places allows one to see how much time, money and effort is put into tourism. I, myself, have been to at least 15 US states, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and as far away as China! As a young boy traveling there for the first time, I was rather ignorant of my surroundings and had a blase attitude about it. However, as time went on, I became proud and honored to have another heritage in my life. The philosophy I have developed is to take advantage of everything offered to you. If one forgoes an outstanding opportunity involving his/her second ethnic background, then s/he will have lost a potentially rich experience.  Aside from traveling, I am also interested in music, television, transportation, hotels, and cities! I hope to post more later.

The Little Things I Miss About Michigan

-

I lived in Michigan for about two years and have spent time in West Michigan, Northern Michigan, and the Detroit Metro area, so I feel like I have a fairly thorough understanding of this state–despite my lack of experience in the Upper Peninsula. This oddly-shaped state is charming, and I always manage to get teary-eyed at the ‘Pure Michigan’ commercials and advertisements. There is much to love about this state, but here are a few things I miss about this beautiful state.

Michigan’s own ginger ale

  • Saying ‘pop’ instead of ‘soda’. I know this sounds ridiculous, but this is somehow something I really miss and is one of my favorite things about the Midwest. When I first heard somebody seriously use the word ‘pop’, my northeastern ears were kind of startled. It sounded so… goofy. But now, I prefer pop over soda. It makes sense–it’s almost onomatopoeia-like. Nowadays I get strange looks when I say it, but I don’t really care. Pop feels natural to say, and I find it… adorable.

    Now you understand 'Pure Michigan'

    Now you understand ‘Pure Michigan’

  • Lake Michigan, as well as the other great lakes… but mostly Lake Michigan. I love Lake Michigan. The beaches along Lake Michigan, from Grand Haven to Traverse City, are beautiful. The waters are clear and blue, and the towns around them are quaint and sweet. My ‘happy place’ would have to be a beach along the coast of Lake Michigan, with Blue Moon ice cream in one hand, and a book in the other.

    Yum.

    Yum.

  • Blue Moon ice cream… I could go on and on about Blue Moon ice cream. It’s mysterious flavor (almost like amaretto but also kind of citrusy?) that is often described as ‘blue flavor’ is part of what makes this Michigan-Wisconsin treat so glorious. Everybody loves some mystery. But the mysterious flavor and its even more mysterious origins aside, it is delicious!  With complete confidence I will endorse it as the perfect summer ice cream, with its custardy texture and subtle fruity flavor.

I mean, there is a ton more I miss about Michigan (and most of those involve food)… but on this rainy, hectic day in Portland, Oregon, I just want to lay out on Lake Michigan, eat some ice cream, and enjoy some of that good old Midwestern vernacular.

Pumpkins and More At Local NYC Area Farms This Fall

-

Pumpkins

This is a beautiful time of year. With the leaves changing from green to red, yellow, and orange, the weather becoming cooler, and the many pumpkins, apples, and other fruits and vegetables available and in season, fall is a great time to hit the road and experience the best of New York and New Jersey farms. There are many locations to choose from, but the following may just be the best of the bunch.

New York

Stuart’s Fruit Farm in Westchester County promotes the fact that visitors can pick their pumpkins of choice directly from their vines. The best pumpkin picking experiences require a little labor, especially if squash plant lovers want the freshest options available. Visitors can also pick up to fourteen different types of apples from their trees this month, so all those interested in pumpkin and apple picking one hour away from New York City should definitely plan to visit this popular farm.

Stuart’s Fruit Farm
62 Granite Springs Road
Granite Springs NY, 10527
Phone: (914) 245-2784

Dykeman Farm is another attractive option for those who love pumpkins and other local and popular fall staples in the NYC metropolitan area. Crops such as sweet corn, apples, basil, parsley, and various types of gourds and squash (other than pumpkins) are some of the many fruits and vegetables available at this Dutchess County agricultural destination, which was first established in 1927. The farm has been in the same location since 1946, and has a good reputation with the locals.

Pawling, NY 12564

New Jersey

Secor Farms in Mahwah is the closest farm to New York City, so visitors can get to this Bergen County gem easily, before the worst of the winter season hits. Hayrides are available during the week, so people can enjoy these scenic tours of the farm with fewer crowds on weekdays. Please check out their website to learn more about the seasonal attractions taking place on their premises.

Mahwah, NJ 07430
Phone: (201) 529-2595

Alstede Farms is nestled in the town of Chester in Morris County, which is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of New York City to make a day of it to search for pumpkins, apples, and a variety of other fruits and vegetables on site. Sunflowers are also available at the farm, so those visiting the 600-acre property this fall should make sure to pick up a few before the season ends. Details about Alstede’s weekend events are available on their website.

‘Tis the season to enjoy the fall colors and seasonal crops at their best, so happy picking!

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco

-

Oh, how I love San Francisco! Recently I went to an amazing park called Golden Gate Park. The playground is seriously beautiful! As soon as I saw it, I wanted to go down the slide with all of the five year olds. Is that weird? I mean just look at it!

I haven’t even gotten to the best part:

I don’t know why I’ve never seen these in other parks! You see how all of those kids have cardboard, that is key to not RIPPING YOUR PANTS!  These little five year olds outsmarted us, I did have a hole afterwards…  I won’t tell you where…

Right next to this fabulous playground, there is a vintage carousal.

Seriously, this park has everything! The day was complete with our picnic under the sun. This is definitely something different, free, and family friendly to do in San Francisco.

Creeks and Sandwiches in Oregon

-

large_sandy.river.july28.2009

 

A few weeks ago, a few friends and I decided to bike to Troutdale, Oregon, which is about 12 miles from my house in Portland. After an hour or so of biking, we reached the creek and spent the whole afternoon floating on the river, laying out in the sun, and fighting the fairly strong currents of the river. Though I brought some gatorade, a peanut butter sandwich, and rice crackers, I was famished, and therefore pretty cranky. Thankfully, I got an Italian soda, some amazing Oregon strawberry ice cream (Tillamook is slowly becoming one of my favorite ice cream brands), and a hot dog, and my crankiness was pushed back for about an hour. And then it struck again: it was time for dinner.

While biking back, we stopped at Shirley’s Tippy Canoe and I hesitantly got myself a Reuben sandwich. Now, I do not often get a Reuben outside of the New York metropolitan area because I have been disappointed too many times with Midwestern and Southern attempts at the Reuben. I am happy to say that I was beyond satisfied, and perhaps that was also because I was aggressively hungry, but I know what I tasted and it was good. It even reminded me a bit of home.

I didn’t have the energy to bike all the way back, so we waited fifteen minutes and took a bus directly into our neighborhood. It was hard to not be thankful for all the resources Portland has; with awesome food, an amazing transportation system, and so much to do… plus, the whole region is pretty beautiful. All that to say it’s not hard to have a perfect day in Portland.
