Sarah Stodola in The New York Times gives the town of Catskill the next-big-thing treatment, mentioning the real estate speculation there and featuring the Magpie Bookstore, New York Restaurant, Catskill Mill, House of Tuki, The General Store of Catskill and other shops. Stodola writes, "a new energy had taken hold in this small town of 4,000 set in the Hudson Valley, where Catskill Creek meets the Hudson River," and gives the credit to Etsy founder Rob Kalin who started Catskill Mill in 2013. Jeff Friedman, president of the Chamber of Commerce says of the recent development in Catskill, “this has been more sustained, and it’s been fueled by more public-private partnerships.” Read the full story in The New York Times.
