Built to Last

There’s something about old fashioned communities that attracts so many of us. What is it exactly? Can you pinpoint that special something about Nyack, or Piermont, or Hoboken, or Brooklyn, or . . . Haverstraw Village that creates excitement, the platform for a thriving community? That thing is anti-sprawl, anti-suburbia. Do you know what I’m speaking of? These places, built before the advent of 30-minute-car-rides-to-the-mall, are walkable, community-oriented, and containing human scale, quality architecture. Watch the video below to get an idea of what I’m talking about, and also to realize that these very principals are alive and well in Haverstraw and in the Village’s future.
