I was poking around today and stumbled on this:

http://easternuslookouts.weebly.com/new-york.html

Not sure how many duplicates or additional info it has but thought it was neat.

I knew a guy who manned the firetower on Poke A Moon Shine.
A group of ladies made the hike and asked about the living conditions there.
He replied that it was not too difficult for him, but he stated that the milk man complained about the note he left that he did not need any milk that day.
True story. ????
