Hudson Valley Musing


Saugerties NY one of the 10 coolest towns in the US


Congratulation to the town of Saugerties for being named one of the top 10 coolest towns in the US.  Saugerties is located on the banks of the Hudson River and has a very rich history.

Saugerties is known for it's antiques, the very popular Saugerties Garlic Festival, the Winston Farm (site of Woodstock 94) and Hits.

Visiting Saugerties I always enjoyed looking in the antique stores and was also captivated by the wonderful architecture.

Cantine Field is a 127 acres recreation complex where many events are held such as the Garlic Festival as well as a variety of sports.

I have listed and successfully sold  two homes that backed up to Cantine Field and was concerned that this could be a negative.  To my surprise both homes were sold quickly as I soon discovered that many of the residents wanted  a front row seat to the events held at the park.

One thing I discovered about Saugerties is that the residents really love their community and are eager to fill newcomers in.  When I had those properties listed near the Cantine Field I went door to door to tell the neighbors about my listings and everyone was welcoming and provided me with valuable information.  From this interaction with the community I even picked up another listing a year later from a lady whose door I had knocked on.

So if you want to get-away for a weekend Saugerties is a great destination.

Interesting. When I think of New York I always think of NYC. Perhaps a trip to New York state should be in my future!
