Haverstraw Creek

It was from this creek that Joshua Hett Smith set out to carry John Andre from the British ship Vulture to his assignation with Benedict Arnold. According to Benson Lossing, Smith made the trip "after the moon had gone behind the high hills in the west. With muffled oars he paddled noiselessly out of Haverstraw Creek (Minisceongo Creek), and, a little past midnight, reached the "vulture."
