If you like a Fourth filled with rockets and aerial displays, you're gonna love this year's Fourth of July schedule of fireworks in the Lower Hudson Valley. Because the holiday falls mid-week on a Thursday this year, there are fireworks events that span from Friday, June 28 through Sunday, July 6...
I recently found myself in the happy position of representing a newly wed young couple excited to buy their first home, and exciting plans to start a family once settled in.

I have always loved selling old homes, as a Brit, I really appreciate older homes with the charm and character that they offer.

NPR's Wade Goodwyn interviewed Lee Sandlin, author of "Storm Kings: The Untold...
Who knew that you could find a little piece of country heaven, minutes, yes minutes, from the hustle and bustle of New York City? Just a 15 minute ride up the delightful Palisades Interstate Parkway to Junction 4 (the first after traversing the north eastern corner of NJ,) you will find the pictu...
  Greenwood Lake, a community built on and around the large lake of the same name in Orange County is one of the Hudson Valley's most popular tourist destinations.
