About 15 years ago, I was so thrilled to have found the original site for the Woodstock Music & Art Fair. Back then, except for a small monument on the corner of Hurd Rd and Westshore Rd, there was nothing but an open field which allowed my imagination to recreate the event as it was.
Last year, going back to what now is called Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, I had a strange reaction to walking around old Max Yasgur's field. It made me see some really weird stuff.
Still, preservation is a good thing!
