Believe it or not, HaverstrawLife.com has been up and running for five years! The blog went online back in February 2006, just as the revitalization in Haverstraw Village was gaining steam. Together, we’ve been through some great and hard times. A new neighborhood has blossomed on the South End and we’ve welcomed a number of new residents to the Village. We’ve also struggled through the Great Recession, hopefully re-emerging stronger than before. The future remains bright. We have a lot to look forward to over the next five years, such as a new ferry terminal at the base of Main Street, new restaurants and shops, a streetscape renovation, and the commercial and residential growth of our downtown and waterfront. If you’re a regular reader, feel free to contact me with suggestions or ideas for future HaverstrawLife posts. Keep reading and stay engaged!
