Hi,
I'm originally from NY and moved to the Charlotte area about 3 years ago. I was contemplating about moving back. I lived in Monroe (Orange County). Wanted to explore other parts of NY with still being able to drive to the city on a weekend if we wanted. Rhinebeck seems like there's a lot to do. Just not sure how the area really is. I don't know if I should just look back into Orange County or not. Any helpful information would be great. I also looked online at Cold Springs. Seems nice but a little pricey. Thanks

Rhinebeck is about as scenic and pretty a town as you can find. Surrounding the four corners, which is the center of town, are streets full of beautiful old homes. I grew up about 5 miles away from Rhinebeck, it was just a regular small town then. Over the years, it got to be somewhat artsy w/ lots of boutiques and shops. Don't really know if they're still there. There are still plenty of restaurants. The train station in Rhinecliff is only a few miles away. Plenty to do and see in the area. There is no crime to speak of, actually I don't even think there's a "bad" part to Rhinebeck. There are parks and mansions to visit that are only a few miles away. Dutchess County Fairgrounds has different things like craft fairs and antiques several times a year. The town has always had a "classy" feel to it.

It's probably too small to have a "bad" section of town.

If you're looking into Rhinebeck, don't overlook nearby Red Hook, or Millbrook.

You may want to consider the Highland/ Marlborough area of Ulster County. While Rhinebeck is a nice area real estate is quite high. Train service to nyc is located just over the bridge from Highland in Poughkeepsie and real estate is more reasonable. Good Luck Zack

This message is for all the WONDERFUL people of Rhinebeck who came to my aid this past Thursday, Oct.28th. While walking in the village with my husband, he apparently had an allegic reaction to the shellfish he had eaten about an hour prior. As he passed out (thankfully on the bench in front of Bread Alone) I screamed for help....A young med student asked pertinent questions when he came to, about 10 passersby called 911, the EMS were there within 3 minutes, taking his pressure,blood, putting an IV, and giving him oxygen. Thank you to the gentlemen who gave me his phone and insisted we get an epi pen. Thank you to the young man (in the grey jeep) who escorted me to the emergency room while my husband went in the ambulance. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
Due to all your help, my husband is feeling fine and is very grateful for all your help. Robin & Rob
