Last weekend, the worldwide readers of the Financial Times (London) were treated to an article, "Where Getting Away is Essential", by Ed Holland, one of their NY correspondents, about his getaway here in Sullivan County. Its quite interesting, because its written from a different perspective by a Brit. Ed’s characterizations are a bit strained, e.g. "So this is not the Hamptons. Standard issue for men is the plaid shirt, a
pick-up truck and a gun. I may well be the only man who doesn’t hunt. At a
nearby lakeside pub, moonshine is dispensed and a goat wanders nonchalantly
among the drinkers,", but its a fun read nonetheless.
The Wall Street Journal also featured Lackawaxen, PA, just across the Delaware River from Narrowsburg, in an article, Swift Waters, that highlighted the growing popularity of the area among retirees. A WSJ Online subscription is required to view that one, though.
