Canoe, kayak, swim or just lounge on the beach while bald eagles soar overhead. Cook in a professional kitchen (or grill on the Weber) and dine/relax on the screened porch overlooking the Hudson. 15 min. from Hudson Amtrak; easy drive to ski slopes.
I'm a born and bred New Yorker, but I love to spend weekends at my home on the Hudson, where I enjoy swimming, relaxing on the beach, kayaking, and writing while occasionally gazing out at the river. While I'm here I bake bread, garden a bit, have friends over for dinner, and just relax. I enjoy cycling and running on the back roads of Greene County, and hiking in the Catskills. My favorite seasons up here are Fall and Spring. During the week I'm a professor, researching and teaching about urban food policy and health.
