Housatonic Heritage

History runs through this region. It follows the Housatonic River as it flows through the towns of Litchfield and Berkshire counties. Set out in any direction, and you’re bound to encounter the area’s past. Because of this, in 2006, Congress designated this […]

A Monumental Family Legacy

Like the legendary painters of the Hudson River School, or the long and storied line of woodworkers in the villages of the Berkshire foothills, the pantheon of craftsmen in the Northwest Corner of our Tri-state is as sublime as the landscape itself. […]

Best-Selling Hudson Valley Author Poised for New Release

After thirteen novels, it may be tempting to describe best-selling author Jennifer Donnelly’s career as something akin to a literary fairy tale. However, like many aspiring creative minds whose ambitions venture into the fictional realm, Donnelly’s journey has taken her down many arduous roads. Donnelly was born in Port Chester, New York. Eventually, her family would settle in the Adirondack region where her grandmother worked at a hotel on Big Moose Lake, a key contributing factor for the setting of Donnelly’s best-selling [...]

Let’s Talk about Savona’s: When Taste Exceeds Expectations

As not only a writer here at Main Street Magazine, but also a proud deliverer of this esteemed publication, I find myself traveling the Hudson Valley each month leaving stacks of the latest issue here and there.

Their collection includes Inspire Moore Joy, Inspire Moore Love, Inspire Moore Grace, Inspire Moore Wisdom, Inspire Moore Truth - even Inspire Moore Lust. I had the honor and [...]
