My home town. It's a small town about an hour north of New York
City on the Hudson River. It has a strong population of the
descendants of Italian stone masons who came over to work on the
Croton Dam in the mid 1800's. The Dam, a part of the water
system of New York City, is the second largest hand hewn stone
structure in the world, after the Egyptian pyramids!
It also has a history thriving population of artists and social
activists, the latter being dominated by Jewish leftists who
were active in the beginnings of the labor

Croton on Hudson is one of those bedroom suburbs of NYC that used to be a
little independent town. It is on the train line, and south of Peekskill.
It is close to Ossining of Sing Sing prison fame.

I've only lived here in New York on the East Coast for a little over a year=20

Having not really explored any areas north of us up the Hudson Valley...=20
that's where we headed one cold day with a full tank of gas in my SUV.
We ended heading up towards the Catskills and on our return home... driving=20
along the east side of the Hudson River heading south (what I believe was th=
old Mohican Trail) we ran across Croton-on-Hudson. This area of small towns=20
next to the Hudson River in Westchester County has a few towns with the=20
"on-Hudson" name (Ardsley-on-Hudson, & Hastings-on-Hudson for example).
Croton-on-Hudson lies approximately 30-35 miles north of Manhattan=20
(guestimating here...) and waters from the dam of the New Croton Reservoir=20
appear to flow through the town. There is also a small town nearby called=20
It was dark when we drove through the town, so I don't have much to offer in=
the way of other information. I had no idea there was an enclave of potters=20
there... this is the first I've heard about it.
I'm currently reading a book about "Native New Yorkers" ...The Algonquins.=20
It's a very interesting read... especially since I'm supposed to have a=20

in the area with strange sounding names... and now I'm understanding why...=20
most of them are Native American names... including the Munsee name of=20
