The Most Dangerous Places in the Hudson Valley
In the past month, a half dozen people have died while engaging in outdoor activities in the region. Our natural assets are as beautiful as they are deadly.

From Poughkeepsie to China: Plan Bee Brewery

Reservoir Year: A Walker’s Book of Days
On the eve of her sixtieth birthday, former Chronogram book editor Nina Shengold embarks on a challenge: to walk the path surrounding the Ashokan Reservoir every day for a year, at all times of day and in all kinds of weather. As Shengold explores the secrets of this spectacular place, she rediscovers the glories of solitude and an expanded community, both human and animal.
