    The town in proud of it's history. Founded on the river to service the logging community, the town grew with the advent of the railroad. It became a weekend community for the middle class leaving 'the city' (New York City). Today, it remains a northerly outpost of City Weekenders.

    The town retains most of it's original buildings. The hotels in town are closed or serving only as restaurants or shops. They are all in decent shape. The Western Hotel and Harmony Hall were once the focal point of town. They just across the street from the station, have a view over the treetops down to the river. Harmony Hall used to offer entertainment most weekends. Today, they're waiting restoration efforts that have begun.

    Weekends (Saturday), there is a farmers market in the local park. It's behind the main row of shops. Local wines, fruites, baked goods, and friendly chatter.

    Take time to just sit and watch the river. There is a bridge across the river to Pennsaylvania in Callicoon, and a boat launch. Both are areas you can sit and watch the river. You can also each a meal at Lander's River Cafe, overlooking the river.

    We stopped in for a quick lunch and ended up behind a float trip of Boy Scouts. They were in the river view room, we also had a view of the river. There noise and activity was set apart from us. Very nice time, it just took longer than expected because of that large group.

    Favorite Dish: Burger and fries and a patty melt. Both very good, nice helpings. The help was very plesant.
