Scales Modeled: O Gauge, and now N Scale (enjoying the lack of noise and ease of operation)
Interesting to know, and I did not know this before your post. Thanks.

I lived in both Fishkill and Poughkeepsie. People not familiar with the Dutch heritage of the Hudson Valley thought we killed a lot of fish in Fishkill and people not from the area couldn't pronounce Pah-kip-see when they saw the spelling.

So you lived near Normans Creek Crick. There is a roadway not far from here called Street Road.

We just called it the crick. Proper name for it is Normans Kill. I was just mentioning that the word crick was used where I lived.

Either pronunciation works. They are just about the same. The accent is on the kip syllable so a slight variation in the first syllable is pretty difficult to hear, at least for me.
