Introduction to Greene County Neighborhoods

From the low-lying plains along the Hudson River to the top of 4,000-foot Hunter Mountain, and from its undisturbed natural preserves to its historic villages, Greene County offers a wealth of activity just two hours north of New York City. Named for Revolutionary War Gen. Nathaniel Greene, the county is less developed than some of its neighbors. A large section of the county is actually within Catskill Park, and thousands of acres of forest preserve lure outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year. Greene County is a fisherman’s paradise, with numerous streams home to trout, bass and other prizes. And the Hudson River itself is available for boating and exemplary bird watching (keep an eye out for bald Eagles). Hiking, biking and mountain climbing opportunities abound. A must-see is Kaaterskill Falls, in the town of Hunter. One of New York's highest cascading waterfalls, Kaaterskill Falls is a two-drop waterfall that cascades a total of 260 feet. The falls have been attracting tourists for centuries, and can be found mentioned in books, essays, poems and paintings of the early 19th century by such luminaries as Alexis de Tocqueville, William Cullen Bryant and painters of the Hudson River School, including Thomas Cole. In the winter, Hunter and Windham mountains feature some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the state. Indoor treats include Cole’s home in the town of Catskill, a National Historic Site and museum. The Hudson-Athens Lighthouse, an architectural gem that has guided ships up and down the river since 1874, is open for summer tours.
