Cragsmoor, N.Y.

Read the latest posts about Cragsmoor, N.Y. here.

Wikipedia does a pretty decent job summing up the 4.4 square miles of romantic-sounding Cragsmoor, N.Y.: “As a whole, the hamlet has a wooded, rustic ambience. Most homes are rather modest and old, but sit on large lots with many tall shade trees. There are also many large undeveloped woodlots, and thus property values in Cragsmoor are higher than in the rest of Wawarsing. Other than the post office, there is no business district to speak of.” Most of the town has been folded into the Cragsmoor Historic District, part of the National Registry of Historic Places, and thus will never be overbuilt. The magnificent country views are pretty much protected for all time.
