Jennifer:  Nice post and it looks like a great area.  I am familiar with War of the Worlds but probably was covering my eyes and missed the part about Athens.

Ray- Since the village is located along the majestic Hudson River while I was at the waterfront park I saw people enjoying all kinds of activites on the river. Even a huge barge went by.

Thesa - The village has all kind of old homes, While I was there I notice several were under restoration.

Ashley -  It is  a beautiful area, I love the Riverfront Park, I can watch  the boats going by.

laurie -Thank you, I just love places by the water, maybe because I grew up on an island.  This village because of it's location does have lots of history.

How cool is that!  War of the Worlds!  Well, a film was made in my hometown of Hawley PA - but it wasn't a blockbuster, it was a flop!  (Playing for Keeps).

Karen- The town people were supportive of the production, sorry your local film was a flop, who knows your town might get another chance.

Derrick -The camera is good, I am not good but I am improving thanks to digital cameras.  When I was new to real estate the office Admin. would laugh whenever I brought my pictures in because they were all slanted.

Ann - Glad you enjoyed the photos.  These pictures were taken about 100 miles north of NYC.

Cristy - I think you would have a great time.  If you come in the fall the foliage is something you won't want to miss.  I plan to take a cruise on the Hudson to see the foliage.

Ray - Glad you enjoyed the pictures.
