Greenwood Lake Mayor


By Jesse Dwyer


      This time of year I am sure many of us would agree that there is no better place to be than in and around GreenwoodLake. The changes of autumn foliage are right around the corner and I cannot wait. And although the warm weather and bustling times of summer are behind us, great days of fall and winter activities are fast approaching. All within walking distance of the center of our incredibly unique little village, one may eat breakfast at some of the finest bakeries or sip coffee at a local cafe, take a hike on the world renowned Appalachian Trail, fish for delicious Walleye on Orange County’s largest lake, hunt for wild game in a preserved 30,000 acre park, ice skate, snowmobile or even ice fish on our frozen lake in the winter. Within a short drive, one may hit the slopes of a local ski resort, pick apples and enjoy wineries that provide a bucolic atmosphere seldom found anywhere else in the state. We are truly blessed to live in this gem – GreenwoodLake.

    I would like to see more businesses in the Village paint, and clean up the outside of there buildings. This would attract more shoppers,and it would look great. A play ground is needed by cvs . Volunteers from the village would help put it together.
