Dream a little Dream with me- Highland NY 12528
I have a dream- nothing as huge as Dr. Martin Luther King. My dream is a more in the lines of the little town that could.
Please allow me to share a bit about my life as a background for my dream. I have lived in Highland NY all my life. My family history on my paternal grandmother’s side goes back to the original French Huguenots. My Dad, also born and raised in Highland told stories or taking the horse and buggy to the Highland landing and riding the ferry to Poughkeepsie. My early memories as child who looked forward to going to “the Village” to go to the two local pharmacies, the meat market, the candy store, the bank and have lunch at the “Sugar Bowl”. In those days there was a movie theater, I remember holding my ears while older girls screamed at the Beatles on the big screen.
Time has passed and for many reasons Highland, like many small towns has lost businesses. People drive to malls and big box stores. As I look around I see the revival of many of the small towns as “walkability” is becoming more popular.
Currently there is a wealth of uptapped opportunity for the savvy investor in the Highland Village. There are both, commercial and multi-family opportunities that are available and represented by Quinn Realty Group.
My dream is to see my town, thrive again. With the Walkway Over the Hudson now drawing over 500,000 visitors a year, now is the time to for this quiet little town to grow and prosper.
Over the next few weeks local opportunities will be highlighted in this blog. Stay tuned and keep your ears open to learn more about this great community, Highland NY 12528.
