Valley Towns

Nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, our valley towns were first settled by entrepreneurial pioneers in the late 1700s. This region has continued to attract businesses, including companies with international reach such as GlaxoSmithKline and US Paper Counters. These two businesses produce products in Greene County, while other successful regional businesses serve residents locally and beyond.

The lower-cost structure of the area helps tourism businesses, including Zoom Flume Water Park, as well as a variety of golf courses and a diverse set of restaurants. The area’s strong tradition of family resorts attract tourists each spring, summer and fall adding a great deal of spending power and recreational opportunities.
