City Beach Observatory

A concerned citizen mentioned to me that there was a hole in the roof of the pavilion at the Plattsburgh City Beach. The huge perforation had been there for some time. I went to the scene to investigate.

After conducting a thorough survey I decided that the hole was evidence of a work in progress. The city wasn't ignoring the structure, treating it like a backwoods shack in Appalachia. The hole indicated that the pavilion was being converted into an observatory. Apparently the telescope is on back-order with Bausch & Lomb. One wonders how practical the observatory will be for stargazers. The antique streetlights in the downtown area are known for pumping garish urine-yellow light pollution into the night sky.
