Toby Joe and I took Friday off and headed up to Beacon, New York to check out the town. (We’ve been toying with moving upstate so we can make hundreds of babies and adopt thousands of cats and drink honey and eat tea and grow stuff.) Beacon is about an hour north on Metro North. If we moved to Beacon, we could still work in the city. We’ll see. (Dare to dream?) Either way, the town is lovely. I was immediately swooned.
We met a woman who moved there a year ago from Williamsburg. She opened a shop called, Feel Designed. I purchased a new hat (which I promise to take pictures of) and a new pair of earrings. She’s amazing. And she loves it there. Anyway…
I took a very few pictures. See them by clicking the image above.
If you make an extra baby on accident, will you send it to Scott and I? ;)
oooh, fun! Did you go to Dia Beacon?
not this time. We were there to look at houses and walk through the town. Next time, we’ll check out the art. It’s really lovely up there.
Dutchess County and the Hudson Valley are amazing. I went to school just north of Beacon and love love love the area…a solid choice.
So, like, say you were a wee baby, you’d be happy there, then?
I wanna buy a place today.
I know you do. I do, too. But Holy Cow! we’ve moved so many times since we met, I am enjoying the silence for now. Let’s aim for doing so by this time next year. That’s totally doable and i hear real estate is going down. Or up, I never know what is good and what isn’t. Either way, I hear it will be to our benefit. Or something.
Yes…you would. My sis is a teacher up river and it is a nice place to be.
Beacon is a lovely place. I visited in Nov 2003. My ex lived there when he first moved to New York and while we didn’t know each other then, he wanted me to see where he had lived. Pictures are here http://www.ericalucci.com/slideshows/thanksgiving2003 if you can get past the Macy’s parade and Thanksgiving dinner ones.
