About: Williamson

While the lake people pay high taxes to see sunsets like this, it doesn't stop the rest of us from driving a mile or two to see them for free.

Williamson. . . .like Lyons and Sodus, a little schizophrenic. Here the residents of the lakeside section make it a point to say they live in PULTENEYVILLE (much like residents of Sodus who make sure they tell you they live in Sodus POINT) because no one wants to be associated with the poor folks who live in the town center or the outlying farm areas. Well, the joke’s on them because they pay a whole bunch of  taxes for the privilege of being surrounded by poor folks! Ha!

Royal EmpireSo, Pulteneyville may have the lake, but Williamson has a really cute little downtown:

Korvan’s Korner–best computer advice EVER!    Apple Crate–cards, crafts, gifts, and so much more!

Ahhhh, Williamson, the only town that allows State Troopers to steal road signs–and then decorate their yards with them.  Now, that’s class:

Amusing, no?  Our tax dollars at work!

Amusing? NOT!!    It’s our tax dollars at work!

The trash can gives it a nice touch, too.

Speaking of cops, when your town is so small it can’t attract a Dunkin Donuts, what’s a cop to do???  Where WILL he get his donuts?? Why, at the Original Candy Kitchen, in beautiful downtown Williamson, of course!

The Department of Public Works, like most everyone here in town, approaches life with a sense of humor. . .

somewhere in there is a mailbox.  I know it, because I put it there.

. . . as they should!  Somewhere in there is a mailbox. I know it, because I put it there last summer.  And maybe a car.  I think there’s a car under there, too.

But it’s apples, not snow, that distinguishes Williamson:

I love you, baby, even if Her Blonde Honor believes you were lawfully and thus deservedly tortured. . . I guess we can’t really expect much else from someone who practices law without a license. . .

Of course, every town in Wayne County has its share of problems (remember, it’s the Land of Stupid for a reason.  There are stupid people in high places. . .like Her Blonde Honor sitting on the Town Court bench.

(The other judge in this court is a little smarter, though, than Her Blonde Honor (and her colleague in a neighboring town). . . at least he understands seat belt law. . .and doesn’t allow his DA to lie about evidence, either. . . )

A dance studio that is kept very busy…lodged in what could be a beautiful old building…the row of purple glass blocks is amethyst glass, which began as clear glass that darkened with years of  exposure to light.

(the broken window is now fixed–now all it needs is a bit more paint)

. . . and there are stupid people in low places. . . I think everybody cheered when the sheriffs finally shut down the coke factory – it’s about time. . . maybe all the druggies were parking down at the Candy Kitchen, thinking they wouldn’t get caught if they parked a few blocks away. . . but that left nowhere for the cops to park their cruisers, so they had to go up a few blocks and park on the street. . . maybe that’s when when they *finally* noticed what was going on. . . not like we haven’t been telling them about it every chance we got, begging, pleading, and wheedling them to DO something about it. . .

Good riddance!!!

Good-bye and don’t come back!!!

We like the barbershop, but not the coke-packin’ tenants!

Not many of these lake-washed cobblestone buildings left. . . What stories this building could tell!

So, maybe now we can get on to bigger and better things, like saving this old Doctor’s office. . .

improving our schools. . .
