As Others See Us: Bohemian, Left Bank, Nyack

If you didn’t see the Feb 27 NYT article, Nyack: The Bohemian (and Budget) Appeal of the Left Bank, don’t worry: it’s bound to be posted in every local realtor’s window for years to come. The article is a keyword catchall of everything you need to know about Nyack, including:

  • People (“…an enduring legacy of writers, painters, actors, filmmakers and musicians”): Author Carson McCullers, Metropolitan Opera principal cellist Jerry Grossman, Director Jonathan Demme, Pierre Bernard, Rosie O’Donnell
  • Places: Clermont, Edward Hopper House, Hudson House, the Mario Cuomo Bridge Shared Use Bike / Pedestrian Path, Maureen’s Jazz Cellar, Nyack Beach State Park, Pretty Penny, Runcible Spoon, Tappan Zee Bridge, Tidewater (the development formerly known as TZ Vista and the Gedney St Project)
  • And things: I-287, Nyack, Schools, Latino, Filipino, Japanese and Israeli restaurants

We will excuse C.J. Hughes of the times for not giving a little bit of love to the Italian, Greek, Thai (two of them!), and Jamaican restaurants. Or not mentioning the legendary Pickwick Bookshop, the beloved Nyack Center, Elmwood Playhouse, or the stunning views from Memorial Park.
Hats off to the the New York Times for a nice summary of everything that makes Nyack special. We predict great things for this publication in the future. :>)

As Others See Us is an occasional feature that publishes what media outside of Nyack say about the people and places in the Lower Hudson Valley.
