I was looking at the picture of your city from the website. It looks like a beautiful town. I am about 1 hr 15 minutes North of NYC, and upstate isn't that busy, but I just like your town better by just looking at it. If anyone knows of some properties for sale please email me. I would definately like to see more of your town & North & South Dakota in general. I am tired of NY.

Beautiful picture of Pick City in the aerial view. I grew up in Riverdale, just down the road! I know that Pick City is a beautiful place for fishing in the summer. I have visited the city several times during the 50's and 60's. Most of Riverdale is gone now since the Garrison Dam was completed in the fifties.

I was so glad to find this web site. Its funny how you take something for granted all your life and now that Im not near Pick City I look at it and realize what a beautiful place it is. I miss it more and more every day. Hope to hear from some of you "hometown" people Ive lost touch with.

Pick City is a great place

Cheri from , ND

I was there when I was just a young girl while my dad worked construction and I have lots of good memories of all the friendly people there. I remember a boy named John that I danced with at a wedding dance and I also remeber Love's used to babysit me. I'll never forget the big tornado that came through and ripped the roof off of alot of trailer houses including the Love's. Hopefully I never see something like that again. If anyone remembers me feel free to e-mail.

paul donahue from sacramento, ca

Spent two-plus years in Riverdale, across the dam, in the early 60's, long enough to remember pick city, underwood, riverdale, the riverdale hotel, bowling alley, and my 8th and 9th grade at Riverdale Grade & High School, most all of which may now be gone....Glad to see the website tonite...

Cheryl Johnson from The Dalles, OR

Glad to see the little town is still there. I grew up in Riverdale and enjoyed going to Pick City to visit friends with my parents Bernice and Dennis Miles. If anybody with pictures of Riverdale or Pick City has any would love to see them in my email. Keep up the good work Pick City! Cheryl (Miles) Johnson

I grew up in Pick City and am now in the 101st down here in Ft. Campbell. It's always nice to know I can see home 24/7 no matter where the Army takes me. The site is great with information, but more pictures always make a site better. Thanks for getting Pick on the web.

I was suprised to see Pick City having it's own website! Growing up there, I didn't think it would become global! It's a great place to visit and to be able to relax. Hope you enjoy your stay :O)

My Grandfather ran Hammond's Bait and Tackle shop in Pick City. I spent my summer's there in the 1960's. I worked part of the day and spent the rest of the day fishing. I have many wonderful memories of that tiny town. It is nice to see a web site.
