Welcome to the ever improving village of Catskill New York! We have relocated on the west side of the Hudson River, just across from the town of Hudson, about 2.5 hours north of New York City. We have purchased an old Main Street townhouse built in the 1840’s.
Our new house needs lots of paint and repairs, but the radiators are warm, the rooms are filled with light, and there is space to work. On the street level are two small storefronts. One is rented to Purrfect Tails of Catskill a specialty pet food and accessories store, and the other is unoccupied. Maybe the future location of a Rodney Shop.
After living most of our adult lives in downtown NYC, the shift to small town life is a challenge. You can hear my philosophical take on our move in a Dharma Talk I gave March 10th 2016. There is a lot of change going on in Catskill. The reasonable rents and real estate prices are bringing in a talented Brooklyn overflow and adventurous entrepreneurs. Of course the town has seen hard times and has some rough edges, but that is changing now.
Here are a few photos. I hope to post more as we begin to restore and customize our amazing old building.
