I figured out the coordinates for this one while I was at work on my lunch hour. This was a fun cache to do and I wasn't positive that I got one of the numbers correct so I had a back up set of coordinates figured out in case I was getting no where with the ones I entered in the GPS. I headed to Arcade after work and first I pulled into a lot on the wrong side, seeing my error I drove to the right lot and made quick work of this one. Nice hide and very inconspicuous. I had no muggles to contend with as everyone had left work and the lot was almost empty. I understand that the world famous, often imitated, but never duplicated Szuchie lives nearby but I didn't see him and I wasn't sure which house was his. I was hoping to surprise him with a Paleoman52 in person visit but I guess that this will have to wait for another time. Thanks for the fun hide -Paleoman52-

HB - you must be one of the only folks who uses navicache! (Although I noticed a new Rayman cache here...who knew!) Not very often do I check this site, but lately (as I'm sure you can attest to), NY Admin has been slacking so I was forced to find alternate avenues to find caches in the area.

Glad you picked this spot, it's right behind my pad! Gotta love caches you can walk to. :-)

Thanks again for the great cache in Arcade, as well as teaching me some info I didn't previously know. Although it was fun to be reminded that this town used to be called China...HA!
