Dated 1910, here is a postcard picture of the road now called Rt. 652 in Pennsylvania. The PA boat access is now located along the bank bordering the river on the left of the picture. The boarding house on the right was known as the West Point House. It was removed many years ago as well as the trees in front. It was a dirt road at the time and there was a path along side where the two women are walking. There was very little traffic, and it was primarily made up of horses and wagons. Read more

BETHEL, NY — Catskill Distilling Company’s “Most Right Bourbon” was named one of the top 10 bourbons in a competitive tasting of small-batch, single-barrel and special-selection bourbons conducted by a panel of whiskey experts at the request of The New York Times recently.

Most have imbibed more liquid cheer in a weekend than a bartender pours on New Year’s Eve. Read more
