View Larger Map Sorry ABOUT THE SHOUTING but I am super excited - the drive-in opening starts spring for me and, since I hate snow and all the winter brings (hello new exhaust system and rear tires because I went off the road in an ice storm!) I love the spring. Before we know it we will be eating ice cream at Moxie's and having burgers at Jacks, watching fireworks and enjoying the short pool season! Or having fires near the lakes after a long day of kayaking and waking up in the tent to the sound of the birdies. I love the warm weather in this area!! Hollywood Drive-In is a 50+ year tradition in these parts and is still a great bargain for a fun-filled kids activity. Come early to get a good spot, bring blankets, bug spray, lawn chairs, and something to throw back and forth (like a ba...

Joseph Hidley’s Painting of Poestenkill c. 1855  I did - so I did some research! And I found the awesome roots n web site - which has a history of all Rensselaer county town names. Not surprisingly, many of the names are based on the Dutch heritage which runs rampant throughout the Capital District. AND they have relevance to the Hudson River and the creeks and lakes in the area. AND of course the wealthy landowners who owned most of the land earned some names as well. For example, Averill Park is named after James Knox AVERILL, who owned quite a bit of land in the area as well as a famous horse named “Moscow”. One source says that James Knox Averill died on 21 May 1881. Our cemeteries database has a James K. Averill (1846-1900) who is buried at Sand Lake Union Cemetery in Sand Lake. T...

I have lived here for 8 years and I can't say enough good things about the area - it's easy to get to, the schools are phenomenal, the people are friendly, there is much natural beauty, shopping is close by, the lakes are great for swimming and other recreation and we have a great selection of restaurants. I hope to make this site help you to see what is so great about the area - and please help me by contacting me about what you love about it as well! We are located on the east side of the Hudson River in the Northern Hudson Valley. We are south of the Adirondacks and Lake George. We are very close to both Vermont and Massachusettes.
