Re: “New Paltz: Cosmopolitan Village

Wildberry is a bad idea in that location. The room prices ensure that it will attract mostly upscale urbanites who will use the Thruway to access it. Traffic will be a nightmare. Also, the owner wants a $6.5 million tax break for a project that will bring mostly low-paying 400 "full-time equivalent jobs" (translation: part time, no benefits) to the area and snarl traffic. He also plans to run shuttle buses to Minnewaska, downtown New Paltz, and Huguenot Street. This will further destroy the character of the town and create all kinds of problems.

Re: “New Paltz

A missed opportunity here: New Paltz supports 2 (!) record stores and 2 (!) bookstores. What makes this even more notable is that they are all within one block of each other--on lower Main Street. In fact, each can see the other right across the street. Barner Books and Inquiring Minds. Rhino Records and Jack's Rhythms. And so what we have in New Paltz is a scene that your article didn't get at. Yin-yang, east-west, sweet-sour, Macy's-Gimbels. This is friendly competition with big pay-off for readers & music lovers. You may have a favorite, but you go to both--and delight in their differences. The sum is greater than the parts, and New Paltz thrives on it.

Re: “23rd Annual Taste of New Paltz

Food was terribly disappointing, and the event ended up being very expensive for the portions/quality of the food. Initially they told as at the booth , that most tables charged 1 to 2 tickets for a plate. When in actuality, most items charged 3, and many 4. I had very little that I would describe as delicious There were greasy crabcakes, cold tacos (that we had to wait 10 minutes for) tiny corn fritter, unseasoned, and had no romesco sauce, (as was advertised). chewy inedible Jamaican oxtails, that were impossible to eat, and tasted terrible, and a bacon wrapped shrimp on a spoon of the blandest risotto I've ever tasted. We spent about $50.00-between tickets, and admission into the event...We could have easily spent that money and eaten a full meal at a decent restaurant. The beer from Gilded Otter was delicious-pumpkin Ale.

Re: “23rd Annual Taste of New Paltz

This is an excellent event because I can find and sample restaurants that I otherwise may not have known about. Also great if you are considering hiring a caterer. You can sample some of what they do.

Re: “A Community’s Character

I never had the pleasure of meeting Ludwig...but after reading this article ...I feel not only that I "know" him a little better but also tha t I would have really liked this unusual and ver special human being. I had the pleasure of meeting his sister Farah at my nephew's wedding. She and my nephew's wife are good friends. Farah also has an exhuberance for life that is contagious...it must run in the family. What a wonderful way to honor this young man's life...a fan club and a special day just for him. I am there in spirit celebrating along with all of his fans...and delighted to see such an outpouring of love and kindness...it warms the heart.

Re: “A Community’s Character

Thanks for the kind words, Joann! It must have been great to be in choir with Ludwig.

Re: “A Community’s Character

I remember first seeing Ludwig at the poetry open mikes at Creations and the Sleeping Turtle around 1996-7 before I came to school here. He was a force of nature! He wrote me some fun little notes and a Valentine's card...and would visit my office later when I started teaching at New Paltz. I got to see him more again when I rejoined campus choir last year. He was always smiling, singing, talking about NYC, and he had the best dance moves. I feel fortunate to have known him, and think he embodied for me what our town does best: allowing people to be themselves "without question or judgment." Thanks, Jen, for capturing this in words!
