The founder of Shakespeare on the Hudson, Owen Lipstein, believes that place - the mystery of the land, the river, the running creek, the elevations, its assembled sublime totality - transmutes everything that happens there. And this spot, where Shakespeare on the Hudson sits, is infected with a magic as respected and private as Prospero's magic island. Our spot on the river is genuinely unique: one of the best places in America, and unquestionably the best spot on the Hudson. The spirit that lives here finds its way into every event, every wedding, every getaway that we host on the property." Shakespeare on the Hudson | Greene  website and more . . .

"In the early nineteenth century, many in this country were searching for a style of art that they could call their own. Painter, poet, and essayist Thomas Cole (1801-1848) responded to this quest by creating pristine landscape paintings unlike any yet seen in America. His vision of wild and untouched scenery with majestic mountains and tangled forests stood in stark contrast to the gentle landscape images that had come before.
