– Backyard Kitchen Design –
Sheltering in place has caused many of us take a good look at our living space. One way to elevate your backyard is with a beautiful, outdoor kitchen design from Stone Ridge Landscapes (blue stone pavers leading the way to your new stone pizza oven, granite sink, and gourmet grill, anyone?), which has an artistic eye and the muscle to get your upgrade done right.

– Home Center (Mid-Hudson Valley) –
Everyone in the Mid-Hudson Valley knows this is the place to go for all of our home needs, but that was never more the case than during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic. As home projects increased, so did Williams’ sales, especially in the paint, lawn, and garden departments. Not only did they keep up with foot traffic and restocking shelves, but they also offered their 250 employees voluntary layoffs if they chose to self-quarantine.

– New Live-Work-Play Development –
Yes, Poughkeepsie’s Eastdale Village has gorgeous apartments and townhomes. Yes, it has 20 acres of parkland with access to the Wappingers Creek. Perhaps the crowning glory, however, is the sheer number of past Best of Hudson Valley winners in the shopping corridor. Do Rosticceria Rossi & Sons and Sweetbakes Café ring a bell?
