HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HERMAN!
Aug. 1, 2019 marked the 200th birthday anniversary of Herman Melville’s birthday. To celebrate, The Enjoy Troy Co. has adjusted our beloved “enjoy troy.” oval to look like the white whale Moby-Dick.
In the 19th century, Melville lived in Lansingburgh (now part of Troy) for a time, during which he wrote two books (“Typee” and “Omoo”).
On March 29, 1647 a Melville’s ancestors, the Gansevoorts, would have witnessed a white whale that swam all the way up the Hudson River to an island in Cohoes across the river from Lansingburgh.
