Café
“"Located in the heart of historic downtown (Main Street), First Village Coffee serves up specialty coffee, craft pastries, and good vibes. Drop by and join us for great coffee, art, conversation, and good company." Our son loves this place - I had never heard of oat milk! Closes at 6pm, and 4 pm on Sundays.”

Park
“Teatown Lake Reservation is 1,000 nature preserve and education center. Dale and I enjoy walking around the lake (some rocks and roots, and takes around 40 minutes). It's peaceful and there's all kinds of wildlife. They also rehabilitate injured animals and birds and you can visit these, also. There are also indoor exhibits and a gift shop, but getting out into the countryside is the reason we go! Small parking fee - well worth it!”
