The beautiful & scenic Taconic Parkway in Westchester County, New York

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We take a ride along the beautiful and scenic Taconic Parkway in Westchester County, New York. The Taconic functions as a freeway in the northern suburbs of New York City and one of the main routes connecting north to the state capital in Albany. The highway is designed to be in harmonic with its landscape, sometimes broad and open, sometimes narrower and winder, as the terrain changes.

In this first of multiple videos, we start just north of its junction with the Saw Mill Parkway (as seen in a previous video) and heading north passing NY routes 100 and 133 in Millwood and Chappaqua (where CatSynth creator and host Amanda Chaudhary grew up), crossing the Croton Reservoir on the AMVETS Memorial Bridge, and passing Franklin D Roosevelt State Park. We turn off the Taconic onto the Bear Mountain Parkway, US 202 and NY 35.

The music through most of this video is the track "Taconic Parkway Bridge" off of Amanda Chaudhary's new album January Suborbital Denomination. The track features composer and musician Jerry King on electronic guitars in addition to Amanda on keyboards and synthesizers. You can hear (and purchase) the album at:
