Can you identify these lesser-known landmarks of Westchester?



There are certain county images — the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, White Plains skyline, Kensico Dam — that are instantly recognizable no matter the shot. But figuring out this sextet of zoomed-in images from around Westchester is a little more challenging. How many can you identify?

In October 2007, a life-sized statue of Abraham Lincoln appeared at an old rail depot situated between Peekskill’s Riverfront Green Park and Homestyle Desserts Bakery. A sign promised that a museum dedicated to Lincoln and his stop at the depot on February 19, 1861, would someday emerge. This past October, the Lincoln Depot Museum finally opened, providing us with a refurbished 3,000-square-foot collection of art and artifacts from and about the 16th president.
