About Roscoe, NY real estate
Roscoe, NY is located in the northwest part of Sullivan County just before you cross over into Delaware County on Route 17. Roscoe is known far and wide as one of the top fly fishing destinations on the U.S. The famed Willowemoc and Beaverkill Rivers come together at Junction Pool just west of town, and close by are the east and west branches of the Delaware River. Forbes Magazine included Roscoe in its 2009 list of the Top Fly Fishing Towns in the U.S., and in 2011, the World Fishing Network named Roscoe the “Ultimate Fishing Town – USA.”
For many from the New York City area who went to college upstate, or visited their children at college upstate, Roscoe is best known as the home of the Roscoe Diner, the halfway stopping point for generations of students driving beteween college and home.
Properties listed with a Roscoe address can actually span a wide area, due to the wide delivery area of the Roscoe post office. A Roscoe address could be as far west as Tennanah Lake in Fremont Township or all the way up in Horton, about 20 miles north in Delaware County.
For fly fishers, riverfront property is sometimes available. But unlike in the Beaverkill Valley running northwest of Livingston Manor, a lot of the riverfront around Roscoe may have a major road sharing it’s river valley. That isn’t the case for all river areas around Roscoe, but is often true for less expensive riverfront properties that may catch an anglers’s eye on the web.
Roscoe is home to the Prohibition Distillery, makers of one of the best vodkas you’ll find anywhere (other spirits on the way) and the Roscoe Beer Company, where you can pick up a growler of their popular Trout Town American Amber Ale.
