New York Roads - NY 23
EB in Norwich, including the shield atop the page. Sure doesn't look like a state route here, so the reassurance was useful.
Looking south and north across the Unadilla River, on the Otsego-Chenango County line, just east of NY 8.
Facing west, with an old post there presumably marking the county line.
NY 23 EB enters Morris as it gets off the bridge, but just to the south is Butternuts. Wouldn't you rather turn right?
On a short concurrency with NY 51 in Morris, NY 23 (here WB) picks up 51's trend of leaving old-style reference markers all over the place.
EB in Oneonta.
WB and EB embossed signs near the inimitably named Butts Corner, courtesy John Krakoff.
Another sign EB near West Harpersfield, again from John K. Some of the older NY warning signs (after the cast iron stage of the 1920's) had what appears to be a standard red circle of reflectors. What, does that warn you there's a sign there? Click for closeup so you can see exactly what I mean.
Two photos from Doug Kerr, first on an old alignment just west of Stamford and then the magical appearance of a reference route in Prattsville. Any route beginning in 9 and ending in a letter is supposed to be a secret, but this one has been outed here (WB) and on the NY 30 end. The shields on and at 30 are old and cracked, so presumably aren't related to this temporary one.
Another old sign on an old alignment, by Morrison Rd. and dating to the 1920's. Thanks to Doug Kerr for showing me where this was. Notice how the arrow stretched from border to border, and due to being embossed was stronger than the rest of the sign.
WB leaving Catskill, at Greene CR 47 in Cauterskill.
All that I found on Greene CR 23B in Catskill were old blue signs with lots of arrows (the first says there's a grist mill 100 feet or so to the north, the first in the county). Otherwise, it would have its own page. These are all westbound, connecting US 9W to NY 23. 23B is old 23 - hence the number, and hence why the signs belong on this page.
Skipping the boring Mid-Hudson Bridge, WB on the east side of the Hudson River. Lower Manor was the old name for Claverack, and the last photo is shared with NY 9H.
