Life at the Clarkstown Country Club

The Historical Society of the Nyacks has just published a facsimile of the original 1935 publication of Life at the Clarkstown Country Club. It was founded by Pierre Bernard (“The Great Oom”), most famous for introducing yoga to America.

There were many lively and eccentric members, and many of the beautiful buildings still stand today. The CCC helped set a precedent for Nyack’s creative and vibrant atmosphere which continues today.

Sadly, unlike the CCC, we do not have elephants. You can purchase this book at Pickwick Books, 8 S. Broadway, Nyack. There will also be a tour of the mansions of the Clarkston Country Club on Saturday, May 15. For more information you can e-mail
