A Guide to Honesdale, Pennsylvania

By |2021-05-07T16:03:33+00:00December 13th, 2017||

Two hours (or 115 miles) from NYC, a small mountain town is the unlikely home to some of the Northeast's best food, shopping, and scenery. With a slew of new businesses alongside the old, its Main Street is coming back to life. And for once, it's not upstate New York (!); it's ...

An Off-Season Guide to Nantucket, MA

By |2021-05-05T19:29:28+00:00August 22nd, 2016||

Though I'm now embarrassed to admit it, our invitation to Nantucket felt confusing. The only preconception I had of the island were thanks to J. Crew magazines—and therefore the only mental pictures I could conjure up were of model types wearing "Nantucket red" (aka pink) polo shirts with popped collars on fancy boats. ...

By |2021-05-06T07:05:01+00:00November 11th, 2015||

Here at Escape Brooklyn, we're kinda big on holidays. If you dig deep enough in our archives, you'll find all kinds of wintery goodness, from our friends' mulled wine recipes to our holiday potpourri–both of which I can't wait to make this year. But with so much holiday cheer brewing, the season just wouldn't feel complete without the ...

Over Columbus Day weekend, vendors and visitors gathered one last time for the final outdoor Phoenicia Flea of 2015. The market was held in the foothills of the Catskills in Stone Ridge at the magical Stone Ridge Orchard, which came complete with a farmstand that sold autumn staples like cider donuts and pumpkins. The seemingly endless ...

What We’re Packing: Hot Times, Summer in the City

By |2021-05-06T07:38:38+00:00July 20th, 2015||

Denny and I spend a good amount of time on the road, often packing our bags a half hour before we leave (and not unpacking them again until a half hour before the next trip.) And thanks to Denny's attempt to be over-organized, we have two or three of everything–you should see our phone charger ...

The Mitchel House in Halcott Center, NY

By |2021-05-07T06:27:31+00:00March 31st, 2015||

Some four miles from the nearest (tiny) town, The Mitchel House is in Halcott Center, just under the three hour mark from NYC. From the outside, you might not guess it, but this beautiful four-bedroom is utterly unique, filled to the brim with antiques. It's also centrally located in the Catskill Mountains, far enough away from ...
