Steve Krulick Email Jan 5, -- 2: Krulick, The building is indeed a steal when it is looked at from the perspective you have stated above. However, there may be more than one way to look at the purchase of the bank building.
From where I'm looking we have the village that is already taxing at, or near the maximum allowable rate. By buying the New Hall, you have taken the if not the largest single taxpayor then one of the largest taxpayers in the village off the tax rolls. I understand the the need for a new village building and won't argue the point. I do agree there was no way to get any suitable structure for less. However the question remains how can we afford this double whammy?
Is the only answer to raise water and rates? Selling the old building in the current economy is going to be problematic at best and the center street property doesn't appear to be too appealing for development either.
So I guess my question is where do we go from here? Email none Jan 5, -- 4: And then another buyer when that fell through, and then another.
Some never even got to that stage. I wish I had a nickel for every time he said a sale to a commercial buyer was immanent. But, of course, it never happened. Hence, "keeping it on the tax rolls" was a chimera. As it was, as the building got empty, the taxes for it dropped quite a bit. AND the Center Street property can be sold, recouping that expense and then go on the tax rolls. If it's done sooner rather than after the real estate market completely tanks, it might even recoup much of the cost of the bank building purchase.
Water rates have nothing to do with it; water and sewer rates can ONLY be applied to water and sewer expenses. Yes, the village has borrowed from water to general or vice-versa, but it eventually has to be paid back.
Let's say the bank building weren't bought That building would just as likely be sitting there still, with no buyers, and the Center St property would still be sitting there, based on decisions from PAST administrations. I don't think that would be better than our current situation. Ellenville still has good value for bargain hunters, compared to elsewhere, and both properties should be aggressively marketed.
Why not buy the village property on Center and build from scratch though I still wonder why the old Herb's Dodge building, which I thought had a buyer, but I've seen no movement in it for over a year, wouldn't be a good alternative on Center and Market, smack in the center of town, and less than a block from Pioneer?

Steve Krulick Email Jan 5, -- 8: Email none Jan 5, -- 8: We are in great need of realistic ideas. We are in great need of people who can deliver and follow through realistic ideas 3. We are in need of leadeship without personal agendas.
Does such notion exist? To the poster at 4: Not everything in Asia. But we,Wawarsing and Ellenville certainly not on priority list of the county. Whatever Senator is talking about is not enough. We are in state of emergency. And in emergency we must act swiftly without hesitation. We must find the way to make County think of us as an important link in the entiry Ulster County Development process.
Arts,farmers market,galleries all is great. But it is small part of the big picture of which we should be apart of.

And not be afraid of it. Think new,sort of radical way and don't be afraid of it. Get attention of higher ups. It is worth trying! Now does the new local elected government has guts to speack up? The former Dodge building can make ,at least based on location a great mini department store.
Sporting goods store maybe with combination of visitor center? Anyone willing to take a risk? Bella Email none Jan 5, -- 9: Village ideas need traffic. Bring college,technology school with at least students enrollemnts.
Share the idea of College with County reps and you will see it is not as crazy as it is sound. I already spoke about it-no respond.
Maybe respond will come later,I hope? Young people will bring new beat into the community,new money. They will need all and the additional services. Their parents will be visiting staying in local establishments. Local graduates will have a chance to stay longer in the community. We can in the future become college town and attract new type of retirees. Just think about of the box. Email none Jan 6, -- Joel has no idea what goes on here. How realistic and personal requires some study, rather than Acting regardless of others and with no hesitation.
Good business it is said requires good inventory, assets and liabilties. Impulsive and emergency does not fit, preparation does. Filing an ad such as "emergancy" conveys "rescue me".
I can see the leeches coming. John B jonb yahoo Email none Jan 6, -- I hate to think why. Seems no matter what one offers, critics will be always there. My skin is too thick for the nonsence. To John B I say this: Who is it for? I keep inventory but where is my clientel? Residents of Wawarsing wants everything: Roll up the sleeve and do something for yourself. And that means also invest money.
In your own inventory. You don't have money? Go to the bank. What ,what are you saying? It is too hard. Then go to Walmart,work for the state and say no more. To the initiators of the art projects I will keep saying: I have nothing under five dollars. I can mail you derection to the nearest one. But I forgot you -already been there many times.
The funny thing is Ellenville will change with or without the above posters. It just the big fish will come and will swallow the little. Bella Email none Jan 6, -- 2: Anon Email none Jan 6, -- 3: Bella Email none Jan 6, -- 6: Why not a local relator such as Hand, Country Agency, Ect.
Email none Jan 7, -- 3: I think at one of the last board meetings I sat at it was discussed about broadening the options with open listings, as Smith hadn't delivered any solid leads for a while. Smith is one of the larger agents in the region, particularly with commercial properties, and the village has to cast a wider net than what local, small agents can usually do. Small agencies often focus on residential properties and are limited on how much they can advertise and promote a pricier property for someone with particular needs for which an old village hall before that, it was the phone company HQ!
Smith was closing their Ellenville office to consolidate offices somewhere else, I forget where, but somewhere in Orange Co, I think Goshen or Monroe; I don't think they had any plans to move to another Ellenville location, including village hall. But someone who knows for sure should answer that. Same as for the current listing status, as I have no regular input now about what's going on at village hall, same as most "civilians" who depend on what is reported to the media, or one hears by accident.
Steve Krulick Email Jan 7, -- 5: No conspiracy here, folks. They're still local and focus on commercial properties more than local, smaller agencies. Email none Jan 7, -- If not its a really sweet deal which puts all other local commercial landlords at a severe disadvantage!
Email none Jan 8, -- 9: The Provident Bank building is certainly on the tax rolls, so your question is moot. If B and L or some other tenant is in the government center, they pay no more property taxes than any other renter in any other office in Ellenville.
Had we built a new building to just our size needs, it would still have cost us perhaps four times as much as this 20K-plus sq. I made it clear at my last board meeting that the village rent rates must NOT undercut the rents of other commercial locations, the owners of which have invested money into the village and should not be penalized because the village doesn't have to make a profit.
My other beef was that no policy was discussed and put in place FIRST before letting the first tenants in. I was particularly upset that I had to read in a press release from Sen.
I have no problem with Bonacic or other elected official having a local office in the Ellenville Government Center; by definition, this is just the type of tenant that makes the most sense, followed by other governmental or quasi-governmental entities.
Commercial tenants should come last. Steve Krulick Email Jan 8, -- It is time to open new businesses. The goal ,if it possible somehow to achive- should be to find potential investors not just to purchase real estate but open businesses as well. Its a tough task to achieve in present national and local economics.
Lets start to exchange ideas of how to bring life and people back to the village. All the above "inside info"is good to a certain point. Even if all the above correct,who and what are willing to do something about it?
Don't waste time on unrealistic goals and if all of you truly care about the village then reach out to the Senators,UCDC,Albany if one must and tell them our needs: Stop acting as we all still wearing diapers: Time to change our tone and talk as grown ups. Time to stop leaking political hands every time they throw a bone.
We need a real meal now,not a bone. Village can have a dramatic change in its existing but it will take a serious intervention. We have a real momentum now,since we cannot go any lower than we are now. Usually in a time as such opportunities out there. By gossiping on this forum we are guaranteed to missed some of those opportunities. Bella Email none Jan 8, -- 8: Despite you good itnetions it seems the VM runs the show, the mayor signs off and the trustees, other than yourself do very little if anything in the way of questioning the goings on.
Email none Jan 8, -- Berme Road or Canal street? The Canal center St. What is it worth? How much did it cost? It's several parcels Is it bonded? Does the village make payments on the purchase of the property? Will the farmers' market be a victim of revitalizing the block, if developers want the property?
Farmers and artists often get evicted, after they come in and turn around a neighborhood. John Adams Email none Jan 9, -- 8: I wouldn't say the Center Street property formerly Rothkopf's, the credit union building, Morofsky's Bar is "known" as the farmers market, as that is a very recent and very part-time phenomenon. New York state — New York is a state in the northeastern United States, and is the 27th-most extensive, fourth-most populous, and seventh-most densely populated U.
Spring Glen, New York
With an estimated population of 8. Both the state and New York City were named for the 17th-century Duke of York, the next four most populous cities in the state are Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse, while the state capital is Albany.
- Mountain House
New York has a diverse geography and these more mountainous regions are bisected by two major river valleys—the north-south Hudson River Valley and the east-west Mohawk River Valley, which forms the core of the Erie Canal.
The central part of the state is dominated by the Finger Lakes, New York had been inhabited by tribes of Algonquian and Iroquoian-speaking Native Americans for several hundred years by the time the earliest Europeans came to New York. The first Europeans to arrive were French colonists and Jesuit missionaries who arrived southward from settlements at Montreal for trade, the British annexed the colony from the Dutch in The borders of the British colony, the Province of New York, were similar to those of the present-day state, New York is home to the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of the United States and its ideals of freedom, democracy, and opportunity.
In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance. Verrazzano described it as a vast coastline with a delta in which every kind of ship could pass and he adds.
This vast sheet of water swarmed with native boats and he landed on the tip of Manhattan and possibly on the furthest point of Long Island.
Verrazannos stay was interrupted by a storm which pushed him north towards Marthas Vineyard, in French traders from New France built a chateau on Castle Island, within present-day Albany, due to flooding, it was abandoned the next year. Inthe Dutch under the command of Hendrick Corstiaensen, rebuilt the French chateau, Fort Nassau was the first Dutch settlement in North America, and was located along the Hudson River, also within present-day Albany.
The small fort served as a trading post and warehouse, located on the Hudson River flood plain, the rudimentary fort was washed away by flooding inand abandoned for good after Fort Orange was built nearby in Henry Hudsons voyage marked the beginning of European involvement with the area, sailing for the Dutch East India Company and looking for a passage to Asia, he entered the Upper New York Bay on September 11 of that year 3.
As of the census, the population was , the county is named after the Irish province of Ulster. InThomas Chambers, a freeholder from the Manor of Rensselaerswyck, purchased land at Esopus, inthe Duke of York created twelve counties in his province. Ulster County was one of them and its boundaries at that time included the present Sullivan County, and portions of the present Delaware, Orange, and Greene Counties. According to the U. Census Bureau, the county has an area of 1, square miles.
The highest point is Slide Mountain, at approximately 4, feet above sea level, the lowest point is sea level along the Hudson River. The population density was people per square mile, there were 77, housing units at an average density of 69 per square mile.
The average household size was 2. In the county, the population was out with The median age was 38 years, for every females there were Catskill Mountains — The Catskill Mountains, also known as the Catskills, are a large area in the southeastern portion of the U. They are located approximately miles north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles southwest of Albany, the Catskills occupy much or all of five counties, with some areas falling into the boundaries of southwestern Albany, eastern Broome, northwestern Orange, and southern Otsego counties.
Foothills are also found in southeastern Chenango, southern Montgomery, northern Otsego, geologically, the Catskills are a mature dissected plateau, a once-flat region subsequently uplifted and eroded into sharp relief by watercourses.
The Catskills form the end of, and highest-elevation portion of. Climatically, the Catskills lie within the Allegheny Highlands forests ecoregion, the regions many large resorts gave countless young stand-up comedians an opportunity to hone their craft.
In addition, the Catskills have long been a haven for artists, musicians, nicolaes Visscher Is map of New Netherland located the Landt van Kats Kill at the mouth of Catskill creek. While the meaning of the name and the namer are settled matters, exactly how, theories, The most common, and easiest, explanation is that bobcats were seen near Catskill creek and the present-day village of Catskill, and the name followed from there.
Mountain lions were known to have been in the area when the Dutch arrived in the 17th century and it was named for Dutch poet Jacob Cats, who was also known for his real estate prowess, profiting from speculation in lands reclaimed from the sea. A ship named The Cat had gone up the Hudson shortly before the name was first used, in nautical slang of the era, cat could also mean a piece of equipment, or a particular type of small vessel, called a catboat.
It has also suggested that it refers to lacrosse, which Dutch visitors had seen the Iroquois natives play. The Mohicans roamed the woods of New England during the 18th century, a Mohican tribe supposedly inhabited the area known as the Catskills today, led by a Mohican chief named Cat.
The supposed Indian name for the range, Onteora, was created by a white man in the midth century to drum up business for a resort. It, too, persists today as the name of a school district, the locals preferred to call the range the Blue Mountains, to harmonize with Vermonts Green Mountains and New Hampshires White Mountains. It was only after Washington Irvings stories that Catskills won out over Blue Mountains, at the eastern end of the range, the mountains begin quite dramatically with the Catskill Escarpment rising up suddenly from the Hudson Valley.
The western boundary is far less certain, as the mountains decline in height. The Poconos, to the immediate southwest in Pennsylvania, are technically a continuation of the Catskills under a different name, the Catskills contain more than 30 peaks above 3, feet and parts of six important rivers.
The Catskill Mountain Club is an organization whose members have climbed all the peaks in the Catskills over 3, feet, the highest mountain, Slide Mountain in Ulster County, has an elevation of 4, feet. The history of the Catskill Mountains is a story come full circle, from erosion, deposition and uplift 5.
Route — U. Route is a Highway in the states of Pennsylvania and New York. US was assigned as part of the establishment of the U. Highway System inthe route was initially an intrastate highway contained entirely within the state of Pennsylvania. The portion of US in New York north of Port Jervis was previously designated as US6 from toUS was realigned onto limited-access highways in two locations along its routing during the s.
In Kingston, New York, construction began on a highway bypassing downtown to the northwest in the early s, the highway began at US south of the city and ended at US 9W north of downtown Kingston. It opened to traffic as a realignment of US byin Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, US was moved onto a pair of new expressways south and east of the borough in the s. US s former routing into Stroudsburg was redesignated as US Business, although signed as a north—south route in both states for its entire length, actually runs closer to east—west along its southern sections in Pennsylvania, only gently trending northward.
Only at Stroudsburg does it begin to more to the north as it begins to follow the Delaware River. In New York it runs almost due northeast for its entire length, much of the highway in both states is a two-lane road, running through narrow mountain valleys, but there are expressway portions.
Business leaves the road at Sciota for travelers wishing to bypass the expressway, at the next exit, takes its own short branch of expressway several miles to I just outside Stroudsburg. It stays with the Interstate through the borough and neighboring East Stroudsburg from exits to and this mile segment provides access to New Jersey via toll bridges at Dingmans Bridge and Milford Crossing, where US comes to its northern end.
Just beyond the bridge, the road reaches Milford, where US6 joins it. The two highways eventually start to run alongside I, and development picks up as they approach Matamoras, after crossing under the interstate at its final Pennsylvania interchange, they form the boroughs Main Street and cross into New York via the Mid-Delaware Bridge.
At Wurtsboro, shortly after the NY17 interchange, the first light is finally reached, just past it, in the hamlet of Napanoch, it picks up its first concurrency partner since route 6, NY55 6. As of the census, the population was 77, the countys name honors Major General John Sullivan, who was a hero in the American Revolutionary War. The county was the site of hundreds of Borscht Belt hotels and resorts, inNew Yorks center of population was at the southern edge of Sullivan County.
When the colony that is now New York State established its first twelve counties ininSullivan County was split from Ulster County. In the late 19th century, the Industrial Revolution and the advent of factories driven by water power along the streams, as industry restructured, many of those jobs left before the middle of the twentieth century. I remember a part of one Irish patriotic song composed to the air of Maryland My Maryland.
Notably absent was Pete Mc Manus, a familiar figure at all affairs. I axed him for a job last year and he towld me I was too owld. He hailed from down Rock Lock way, and I never learned his last name.
He died about We used to shout fragments of his lines after him and thought that funny. The old man never turned on us or showed resentment otherwise and his dignity seems to me holy now. May this atone for my childish thoughtlessness. My father often used a phrase from Mad Mick not included in the poem.Die Trapp Familie in Amerika (1958)
Earlier than that it was of quite common knowledge. After that things go along easy, And we can rest at the end of the day. Ninety nine years to go, ninety nine years to go. And then to hell with the canal boats Ninety nine years to go. Dublin Eddie Wilson Among the many outlanders who came to this section during the aqueduct construction years — was Dublin Eddie Wilson a foreman with a flair for journalism and rhyming.
A fine warmhearted gossom, Eddie by the sheer grace of God survived the publication of various lampoons on hard boiled elements and personalities. The samples we give of his writings are patched together from memory and may be inaccurate and in improper sequence. Illustrative of his style of prose is the following description of a circus band attached to a small troupe that pitched a tent at High Falls for a night.
The following is the correct version copied from the original through the courtesy of Mr. Quick whose forty second birthday it commemorated. I interviewed him recently December 27 and sought other Wilson poems but he had no more. Elsewhere I jotted down from memory as much as I could remember of this poem.
A comparison showed considerable variance between my memory and the authentic verses.
