I seem to have missed the moment--that's what happens when you're a slow reader and take too long with a book! Since we picked this from the previous round should we start with a fresh list? And not sure who'd like to pick--or who hasn't done so in a while?

I'm a native of Yonkers. I'd say that description is about right. The name is a corruption of a Dutch term.

I don't know why she would be sitting around reading who landed in the boats entering the NYC harbors, but I guess she was bored.
