I'm an Architect, recently retired from a medium sized firm. My interests are sustainable design, modern art, and garden landscapes. We've built two unique houses that we split our year between - one on a lake in the countryside of NY state, the other in the city of New Orleans.
My husband, also an Architect, loves to travel with me, mostly to Europe and especially Italy. We are interested in cities, old towns, and off the tourist track destinations.
Each year we make the drive back and forth from NY to New Orleans, exploring other cities and states in the USA. We've made New Orleans our second home recently, and as you can imagine, we enjoy its food, music, and unique culture.
Copake is in Columbia County, an agricultural and scenic area two hours north of New York City, and is popular with weekenders for its summer music, theater and art festivals. Our closest towns are Hudson NY, known for its edgy food, music and art scene and antique dealers, and Great Barrington MA, with great shops and historic location in the Berkshires.
