Gansevoort, of the blog Ahab Beckons, was kind enough to blog about his trip to see the display of part of the MOBY DICK Collection currently at SUNY Albany. He made a nice day trip by visiting Arrowhead as well. His entry on the AHAB BECKONS blog details it.
In addition to Arrowhead in one could visit Melville's home in Lansingburgh, just north of Troy NY. Its the home of the Lansingburgh Historical Society, and in which Melville wrote his first two novels, Typee and Omoo.
