Legacy Spaces by the River
The Village of Coxsackie was a Hudson River port for almost 300 years, bringing people and goods to cities and towns north and south. As roadways and rail replaced the river as main transport routes, Greene County’s port villages declined. When the NYS Thruway opened in 1954, commercial river service to the villages of New Baltimore, Coxsackie, Athens and Catskill was all but eliminated. Businesses relocated to the highways, and some great legacy spaces were left vacant.
Today, these legacy spaces are being transformed into great new small businesses as community, affordability, and support systems combine to draw more and more entrepreneurs to establish their dream businesses throughout the town from historic Reed Street to National Registry Farmsteads, to rural hideaways.
