  1. Mr. Palmer,
    I work at a law office in Ithaca, NY and have been researching the history of what is now NYS Route 34 (East Shore Drive), specifically a section of that route located in what is now the Town of Ithaca. This blog provides a tremendous amount of information and I'm wondering if it might be possible to contact you to ask you a few questions that may aid our research efforts. However, I cannot find an email address or any other way to contact you on this blog. My email address is lindsey@crossmore.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
