For those of you wondering, and I am sure it is a bunch of you, Suckers Hole refers to the FISHING. Please remove your mind from the gutter. Thank You.
If you look down over the bank you will be looking into what we affectionately called "Suckers Hole" when we were kids. My wife grew up on this street. The large abandoned stone building used to be an old mill, and I think the ground level floor housed a butcher at one time.
The road, "Plain Hill RD", Refers to an Inclined Plain that was on the canal at this point. From the Encylopaedia Brittanica:
In the 18th century, inclined planes were
constructed to transport small boats on
trucks between adjacent pounds, using
animal power and gravity and, later,
steam. A series of planes was built in
the United States on the canal between
the Delaware and Hudson rivers to transport
80-ton vessels in caissons"
