During my recent Upstate exploration I was delighted to bump into a small village East of Poughkeepsie called Millbrook. With less then 1,500 people living there, you may expect little — an indeed there are just a few stores and houses. But all of the stores seem to be impeccably curated and new places are popping up.
Getting to Millbrook, NY from NYC
