Order curbside pickup or takeout

Throughout the Hudson Valley

Craving your favorite Hudson Valley fare? Show your support for local cafés and restaurants in the region by ordering curbside pickup, delivery, or takeout. Many eateries offer no-contact delivery as well. Check individual websites ahead of time to confirm store hours and policies. Looking for family specials and free lunches for kids? We’ve got that, too.

Brew the perfect cup of tea


Craving a hot cuppa to ease the coronavirus tension? Order a new-to-you brew from Millerton-based Harney & Sons, then learn how to steep the loose leaves correctly. Not only does the fresh tea flavor taste so much better than the big-box stuff, but each scoop of camellia sinensis comes with a wealth of health benefits. Plus, did we mention that tea time is the perfect time to do a bit of online shopping from small businesses in the Hudson Valley?

You know how some places make you instantly happy? Armour-Stiner House does it for us.⠀ ⠀ P.S. Our Best of Hudson Valley ballot closes for good on Wednesday! Did you vote yet?⠀ ⠀ Reposting @castle_and_keep:⠀ ⠀ c. 1860. “Armour-Stiner House.” (5 photos) I was so excited to tour this incredible house yesterday! It is the only octagonal, domed residence in the world, and certainly the most eye-popping pink house in the area. Built in the 1860s, it was originally home to financier Paul J. Armour, but the dome and veranda weren’t added until 1872, when Joseph Stiner bought it to use as a summer home. The design inspiration was a Roman temple. The house has been sold to a number of owners over the years, so it’s incredibly forunate that it wasn’t ever drastically altered or torn down, and it still contains a large amount of the original furniture. The house was bought by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in the 1970s, and in 1978, was sold to preservation architect Jospeh Pell Lombardi, who painstakingly restored the house. Lombardi still lives there, and actually ran the tour, so it was fascinating to hear him describe some of the preservation efforts he had to undertake, such as fortifying the dome from collapsing by inserting steel supports inside and around it. I have a ridiculous amount of photos from the tour, so I’m just including a few outdoor shots in this post, but I will be sharing the interiors throughout the week. Enjoy! @armourstiner #armourstinerhouse⠀ ⠀ #hudsonvalley #hudsonvalleyny #architecture #thinklocal #explorelocal #photooftheday #historic #getoutdoors #getoutside #exploremore #lovewhereyoulive #hvmag
