Hello all, its been a very very long time since I've been on the fossil forum and I'm glad to be back! I've been doing some research on my own trying to scout out a place for me and a couple of friends to dig at once this snarge cold is gone here in NYC. I would love and appreciate a couple suggestions on where to go in NY state. I'm not particularly picky in terms of what I'd like to dig for but I just ask for recommendations that are easier to enjoy for novice paleontology enthusiasts (my friends). And by that I mean that I have come a long way from my spacious work space with sandblasters and chisels when I lived in Idaho, to a crowded NYC apartment! So whatever we dig for (hopefully something like classic Cambrian shale) can be appreciated without much gluing/blasting/prep. We would like to have a dig spot that isn't too treacherous or cramped with camping nearby! Thank you for your time, let me know!! BEN
Hi, I moved to NYC recently from Texas (where the fossils are plentiful and everywhere) and am very interested in finding out about fossil sites around New York City or in the (relatively) nearby upstate area. Does anyone have any locations or suggestions? I'd rather not trek as far as ithaca and buffalo, i will get to those at some point, as I have read about the sites there, but if anyone knows anywhere closer, i would greatly appreciate info! And if anyone from the area would like to plan a trip and wants some company, please let me know. Thanks in advance! H
Ventured up to Manhattan last weekend to tour the American Museum of Natural History, which is currently one of the largest dinosaur exhibits on the planet. I hope you enjoy the photos as they were take on an iPhone 6 and the lighting might be off in a few spots. For starters here's picture of myself next to a massive Tyrannosaurus Rex cast. I believe the head in the glass box on the left is a real head.
