About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find site of missing monument NY22, drive onto Northern Boulevard (right turn out of parking lot)and immediately take first left turn (after Memorial Hospital). Drive down hill to Broadway and turn right. Follow Broadway through Albany to bridge ramp to City of Rensselaer (Route 9 east). Monument would have been in this location.

Context: This location marks a point where the old road south from Claus's Ferry would turn to enter the City of Albany. The train of artillery that crossed at Claus's Ferry would have passed along this route the first week of January.
