Welcome to My Home in the Hudson Valley
A Photo Tour of The Hudson Valley
Living in New York City is a most unique way of life. Whether you are living in an upscale home overlooking Central Park, or a brownstone in one of the fabulous newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhoods, life in NYC comes with a different feeling and set of expectations. Some say it is a lifestyle for the young, others say it is acquired taste. The choice to live in NYC comes with varied opinions and an affinity for a unique lifestyle. Statistics show that over 8 million people call New York City home. Many residents find the pace of the city tiring after a while, and look to move out of the city and into the suburbs. Recently the Hudson Valley is seeing many transplants from NYC moving north up the Hudson River. Many are moving north and bringing their businesses too. Why? Because they can.

Did you know that a tiny rental in NYC can cost more than a mortgage payment in many parts of The Hudson Valley? You won’t believe the prices here. Yes, The Hudson Valley is an affordable investment, with green grass and a backyard. Homes vary in size, shape and price point. The one thing in common is that when you buy rather than rent, the home is all yours. You no longer have a landlord, and building equity in your very own home is sweet! That alone is enough reason, but we do have many others. Many of our new transplants are moving north to live and bringing work with them. Others make the commute to NYC and other parts of the region for work. We are commuter friendly.
Invest some time in visiting and you will be most surprised at what you have been missing. I am continually finding new things to see, do and yes, snag more photos to share with you. It is such a truly beautiful place to live. These are eleven of my favorite reasons to call the Hudson Valley my home. Hard to pick only eleven photos and things to do around the area, but I did narrow it down. Maybe you will find some or all of these enough reason to make the move. I am getting calls every day from Brooklynites and NYC residents that are hopeful to make the move soon. Let me know what you think of all these great locations. Each of these places can be easily reached from Grand Central Station. When you want to be a part of our communities then you can search for homes by town, price, school district and more. Let me know when you are ready to make the Hudson Valley your home too.
