I moved to Catskill in 2003, which at the time was a complete culture shock to me, but it enabled me over the years be able to watch Catskill rise from its unfortunate state to a very active tourist town and a Main Street with tons of restaurants and unique niche shops and cafes. Watching Catskill evolve and even being a part of its journey has been fantastic. We have two performing arts centers, one being a theatre and the other a performance hall. We sport several unique antique shops, local artisan ware, art galleries, and local street art such as sculptures and gardens. We are lucky enough now to have several unique eateries, a New York styled dine in, a two story riverside marina styled restaurant, malt beverage distillery, a smoothie and juice cafe along with the usual pizza joints and Chinese food. We also boast a Thai eatery and take away, and a sushi bar. Catskill has really blossomed and it"s a town you shouldn't miss in the summer or fall for sure.

I moved to Catskill few months ago. I really like the life here. I spent my weekend to hiking around the area of Catskill Mountain. I went to the lake and stream to do fishing. In Catskill mountain, the scenes are so beautiful. I would love to do skiing one day at Hunter. The people are so friendly. We do have a lot of local farmer market every week on the summer. There are one thing that I would love to have more good Asian food in Catskill.
Very small town, everyone knows everyone. Did not grow up around here like everyone else, only been up here for five years or so and it is very hard to get in to the younger crowd because everyone grew up together. Some good places to eat though.
