A Day in Millbrook, NY

Everything is find in Millbrook, in case you wondered. Or so it seems as you enter this refined village in Upstate New York just 20 minutes East of Poughkeepsie. There are parallels with Hudson, NY – especially in the town’s striving for graphic beauty and design. It makes it a lovely weekend destination to slow pace and get inspired.
