Just when I was about to give up all hope, spring has sprung. Although Mother Nature isn’t quite ready to commit, there’s no denying that winter will be beating a not-so-hasty retreat over the next few weeks, as the snows melt and that big yellow ball in the sky peeks out from time to time.

Spring forward, fall back

It’s that time of year again. As Old Man Winter considers taking a back seat, the weather vacillates, see-sawing from mild to wild. It’s below 30 as I write this, but we’re expecting near 60 by the time The River Reporter hits

Welcome to retirement

Planning a home-based, backyard May wedding in the Catskills while simultaneously starting a new business and selling a co-op apartment in Brooklyn is not an activity I would recommend. Yet that is exactly what we are doing.


The River Reporter asked readers to write in with an essay about why they love Narrowsburg, for the chance to win tickets to the upcoming Winter Dance Party at the Narrowsburg Union. Here’s the winning letter.

The charm of Narrowsburg

The reason my husband and I like Narrowsburg, NY so very much is it’s such a quaint little town, with all the charm and beauty of small-town America, yet there’s no shortage of hip little boutiques, delicious restaurants and much culture. The people are always friendly, welcoming and always willing to give a helping hand.

CALLICOON, NY — At one time, the Catskills were a destination getaway for the rich in famous, with some now-abandoned or revived hotels, resorts and restaurants standing in tribute to this once-thriving hotspot.
