I am looking for a place where I can plug myself in, such as Kingston Rondout, or something like it. I am starting over, disabled.. not handicapped though, in need of relatively safe place, love going for walks, painting marinas, looking for board game groups, church. Am originally from Port Jefferson Long Island NY(and would love place similar), but have been in Richmond, VA for last 20 yrs. I hate the humidity in Richmond and want much less humidity. Anyone have any ideas?

You won't find it in the Hudson Valley. Humidity is now different than in Richmond. Maybe NYC might be your ticket for the types of activities you are seeking.

Default What do you mean

More humidity? I want much less than Richmond, in humidity.
What about the meetup groups in Hudson Valley, they look promising. No?

Not really looking promising. You could always check the local craigslist section. I'm sure they are out there, but if they are you will need a car. Humidity gets pretty nasty up here during the summer.

I moved to Washingtonville from Bronx, NY. My gooodness what a change! The cold is colder and the snow is higher, but the town can easily be completed by foot. Brotherhood Winery, St Mary's Church and cemetry,Stop and Shop with hair/nail salon and drug store all in on block radius. A disabled person would feel very free to explore this tiney town. The scenery can't be beat because Washingtionville sits in the MId Hudson valley of the Catskills. Photograph it;paint it ;experience it ; you won't be dissappointed. I'm not. The biggest draw back I feel exist today is the traffic. Very few roads and lots of school buses. I commute to Westchester everyday and I notice more and more families are moving into the area but the cul de sacs don't make more roads for the influx of children and the like. If you are a senior it is just right for you. As long as you mindfully get out. Hope I helped. Washihngtonville is 200 miles away from NYC and in Orange County just above Woodbury Commons.

Did you say 200 miles or did you mean 20 miles? Washingtonville is more like 70 miles north of whatever part of NYC. Washingtonville is probably more accessible getting into the city than some of the other towns. If you like quant and crowded you will like washingtonville. Edit... I miss the part where you said we are in the catskills. We are a lot closer to the catskills than the city folks but we aren't any closer than the city folks.

You don't like our summers? I'm originally from the Hudson Valley but in VA 30+, it can get bad in the summer but not like here. Consider looking more in the mountains, maybe further upstate like the Saratoga area, good luck.
