The Devil’s Chair Congress Park Saratoga Springs, NY

This stone monument is what remains as a testament to an old Episcopal church.  Much like an unmarked tombstone, an eerie reminder of impermanence and mortality.  The Devil’s Seat in Congress Park is said to have been a place for judgement and reconciliation of gamblers.  Ironic as it seems, to be located in Saratoga Springs where horse racing lives notoriously.

If it was not for the Pokéstop located at this stone throne, I would not have ever seen this monument.
