“New York's Palisades Interstate Park," by Barbara H. Gottlock and Wesley Gottlock; Arcadia Publishing (128 pages, $19.99).
For more than 100 years, the Palisades Interstate Park in Rockland and Orange counties has been a place people in the New York metropolitan area can go to.
Compiled by Barbara H. Gottlock and Wesley Gottlock, the book is part of Arcadia Publishing's "Images of America" series and features many vintage photographs from the park as well as details about towns that existed on the park land, information about the historic sites and pays special attention to the infrastructure created over a period of 100 years.
The Gottlocks, Hudson Valley residents, are retired educators. They are both docents on Bannerman's Island and coordinate volunteers for the island as well.
