Aquatic invader: The water chestnut’s history, annual revival on New York waters

HEUVELTON — Along County Route 15 just east of the village of Heuvelton, the Oswegatchie River is blanketed by green water chestnuts. Different from the grass-like water chestnuts that produce crisp corms featured in Asian cuisines, the invasive Trapa natans species is a legacy of an intentional introduction to North America nearly 200 years ago. Though they carry the same common name, the two species are from distinct orders and are only related by three of the broadest biological classifications.

However, the original Jackson Heights families eventually found greener grass in the suburbs, leaving empty apartments for sale. When President Lyndon B.

Nick's Fish House - Baltimore, MD

So I’ve lived in NYC for about 2 months now, and my family felt it was time for me to come back to MD for a visit, so that’s where I’ve been for the last week! It’s always nice to go back home and visit family, and of course try out some new restaurants! This week my family took me to Nick’s Fish House, which I know I’ve been wanting to try out forever now, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
