Anyone willing to share some spots near NYC?

Post by ErikNM » September 7th, 2015, 10:01 am

I'm flying to NYC in a few days and will be there over the weekend. I'll particularly be around Katonah, Carmel and White Plains (visiting family) and was wondering if anyone had any spots to herp. I haven't posted on FHF in awhile but I'm sure some people could vouch for me. I only take photographs. I'd be happy to see anything...snapping turtles, black rat snakes, milksnakes, timbers, racers, garters, etc. Thanks!

I'll vouch for Erik. He's a standup guy and I've been happy to entertain him in some of my very best/favorite parts of east Texas.

Hi Erik,

I'm not really familiar with the areas south of I-84, but Katonah and Carmel both look like they are close to good spots. Carmel is near Ninham Mountain State Forest, and Katonah is within driving distance of Bear Mountain and Harriman State Park. I think that Bear Mtn could meet your needs.
