A Thought…

Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what’s going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate?

A View of Our Beautiful Area From Overlook Mountain's Fire Tower

View from Overlook Mountain 08

This view is looking north towards some of the eastern Catskills into Greene County. On the left is Indian Head Mountain (3573 feet/1088 m). Just as the southwestern Catskills, around Sullivan and southern Ulster Counties, became known as the "Borscht Belt" for their many hotels catering principally to a Jewish clientele, the northeastern Catskills are often referred to as the "Irish Catskills" for their large population of Irish descent. The Durham area contains an Irish-American museum and hosts several Irish and Celtic-themed festivals each year.
