In Greene County, reports from above 1500’ in Windham, Hunter, and Haines Falls predict peak conditions and leaves will be 90 percent changed with very brilliant red, yellow and purple leaves. Catskill spotters project peak foliage with 90% color change, with very brilliant and rapidly changing shades of red, yellow, and orange." The Greenville Pioneer reports on how local businesses are adapting to leaf season, when they usually would have lots of tourists. At the Mountain View Brasserie in Greenville, new owner Val Nishefci is emphasizing outdoor dining, with the restaurant's view of the Catskill Mountains. “There’s a beautiful view of the Catskill Mountains, and they can see the fall foli-age as they’re dining,” Nishefci said.
