We feel lucky to live here in the Hudson Valley, and summer is an exceptional time to be here.  Wassaic is an up-and-coming hamlet of Amenia.   Thanks to Wassaic Project co-directors and founders Jeff Barnett-Winsby, his wife Bowie Zunino and Eve Biddle there is plenty to do in Wassaic this July and August.  Oh, and when you’re there make sure to stop by The Lantern for some great food and craft beers.  The outside patio and firepit make for a perfect summer night!  Enjoy!
