Today we visit Tarrytown, NY, made famous by early American writer Washington Irving, and get a look at how construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge is coming along.
Next stop: Beacon, NY, where folk singer and environmentalist Pete Seeger lived and sailed the Hudson River, calling public attention to its pollution. Did you know that legendary Notre Dame University basketball coach Digger Phelps coached junior varsity basketball in Beacon? We didn't until we visited the town.
Final stop on Day 2: Peekskill, NY, where a nuclear power plant is leaking radioactive material into the Hudson but another environmental story is making bigger headlines.
