Ticket to the Pal

Story-related photo 961

For 14 years an interurban railway made it easier than ever for Cornell students to enjoy the beauty of what’s now Palisades-Kepler State Park. By the late 1920s the advent of the car meant the railway wasn’t needed, but recreation at the park still was. Starting with an illicit “Flunk Day” in 1920, Cornell students headed to the park for a day of spring recreation for nearly 50 years in a tradition known more genteelly as “Pal Day.”
