You read my mind on Lake Neatahwanta. I was looking for a good picture of the gazebo and pier just off Route 3 and couldn't find any shots that did it justice. Piercefield is a very nice area as well and reminds me of some of the affluent neighborhoods in outside major northeast and midwest cities.

Oswego's theater is the same way. It is a big theater that has been split up into a 4 screen theater.

I've heard the same thing about the Hollywood theater in Mattydale. They are cheap in terms of ticket prices and popcorn supposedly too.

Piercefield is overlooked big time and is on par with any of the nicer neighborhoods in the area, in spite of being in blue collar Solvay. Very much an old money neighborhood.

That part of Fulton west of the river actually isn't that bad, for the most part. I would sometimes take Route 48 on my way to Oswego. Battle Island State Park, Midway Drive In theater and Thunder Island Amusement Park are off Route 48 near that part of Fulton.

Pretty cool place, if you ever happen to be out that way. It's always been the movie theater, there, and it's kept updated.

Welcome to Thunder Island!

Midway Drive-in Theatre
When I lived in Oswego I played golf many times at Battle Island aka BI.

If you want some good grub go here Rudy's Lakeside | Open 7 Days A Week Summer hours 11am – 11pm I pigged out there many times after hitting the bars. While some may think its only for college kids, that's far from being true.

I did attend SUNY-Oswego, but went to Rudy's many times as a non-student.

Yes sir and don't forget to get ice cream at Bev's down the street after. Great location to check out a stunning sunset off of Lake Ontario too.

There have been times I've driven up there to get a Garofalo's half loaf sandwich and sat by the river or at Brietbeck Park to eat and check out the scenery.

Rudy's and Bev's actually just opened last week, which is quite early. The exceptional weather has many students opting to eat out here rather than in the dining hall - our counts are down the past two days. The Red Sun in Oswego is also quite good. As is Fajita Grill. Prefer Chipotle, but it isn't a bad alternative.

Next time you get to Oswego you might want to stop in this family owned place Bosco & Geers

They have really good meats and sandwiches. I know the family that runs it very well. Great people. They've been supplying Rudy's with their beef for decades.

Thanks for the tip. I've never heard of the place when I was going to school up there.
