Predict the Place

Identify where in the villages the picture was snapped

Think you know Nyack and Piermont? Here's your chance to prove it.

In this weekly column, we'll post a close up of a landmark in Nyack or Piermont. And as the day goes on, we'll add more photos from a greater distance.

The first reader to successfully guess the landmark wins—just post your prediction in the comments section. Being the first to correctly answer will win you the esteemed Patch title of Mr. or Ms. Nyack/Piermont for the week. (We'll crown you with a Twitter tweet.) Also, you'll receive a Patch goodie bag with water bottles, magnets and more.

Start guessing, and see who can hold the (digital) crown the longest.

It's the mine hole. Supposedly after the rail lines were laid down the hole collapsed and was permanently sealed off to humans. But some old timers (who are no longer with us) said they used to go down that shaft when they were little and there was a path that wound around under Piermont Avenue going towards Sparkill and perhaps under the creek and there were little ponds where they used to play as kids.

@Brian, yes it is the same place......@ Kevin, no it is not accessible. The tunnel collapsed after the railroad bed was put in! If you both go to www.rocklandhistory.org you will find some great publications on Piermont history including the minehole!

I live in Piermont and fairly close to the location, and apparently pass by it every day. I cant find it though, does anybody have the coordinates???

It's on Piermont Ave going west toward Sparkill, a couple hundred yards past the Canzona Deli.
