Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Rosendale) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Rosendale. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from RosendaleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rosendale. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.8473, Longitude: -74.0776       In this case, the coordinates for Rosendale have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
