Medina is a village in Albion County, on the Erie Canal. The village was incorporated in 1832 after becoming a port when the Canal opened in 1825, and has a population of around 6,500.

I like the apple monument. Can you tell us more about it?
Medina has a lot of impressive looking commercial buildings for a town of 6,500. I don't know of many towns with that. I also like how the houses are old and spread out like suburban-style or newer homes.
Medina is nice, visited last summer when I went to the Medina Railroad Museum. Supposedly the operating HO layout inside is the largest in NYS. Also quite a bit of firefighting memorabilia and a giant Heinz pickle as well. They also do foliage trains in the fall but we didn't have time for that. Maybe this year.

Had dinner at a little diner on Main St, in fact I think it was the one next to the pizzeria under the "Kids Eat Free" banner. Didn't see the apple, though.

I'm planning this fall on taking a tour of several of these Orleans County villages for apple picking. I haven't heard a bad thing yet.

In your 12th picture - if that idiot put as much into maintaining his house (whichever of the two, but the right one in particular if that's his) as he does into his POS hummer, he'd had a really nice looking house. Too bad. Nothing like throwing all your money into something that's guaranteed to depreciate.

Oops, I got that mixed up, since I also took pictures of Albion. The two sound kind of the same.
