Was camping near Cuddebackville, NY, which is on U.S. 209 east of Port Jervis, NY, last September during a bike tour. On a back road off 209 you can still see part of the former D&H Canal. No water in it, and it's all grown over, but it's there.
I haven't visited that area yet, but that's what the canal looks like near our place in High Falls, too. There are still some parts that hold water. High Falls has the museum devoted to the canal. It was the largest public works project in history at that point, a million dollars. And it was done on time. There were 10,000 people in High Falls because of the work boom. The population is now about 627.
