A town in the Hudson Valley has been raved about by the New York Times.
The New York Times just described the Hudson Valley town as “pristine.”
The New York Times recently featured Esopus, New York.
The New York Times headline reads, “Esopus, New York: ‘A Pristine Environment’ and Hidden Riches.”
The article highlights how many New Yorkers who visit Esports for the weekend or use the city as a home away from home become full-time residents.
Corcoran Country Living real estate agent Richard Vizzini told The New York Times, “Esopus offers nature, peace, privacy, and seasonal outdoor activities. There are always more buyers than homes to buy based on how attractive the area is to New York City residents.” Some properties have stream or river access, always attractive to buyers. “
The article lists how many people have discovered the region’s “natural beauty” during the pandemic.
“This Ulster county town is known for its nature reserves, waterfront homes and quietly wealthy residents. ‘It’s not as flashy as it looks,'” the article said.
