Hope you enjoyed the little tour of Arrow Park!  If you’re making a trip up to Woodbury Common to do some shopping, it’s a good, historic place to stay.  Or if you just want a break from city life, Arrow Park is perfect. But be warned: you will need to rent a car or call a taxi to get anywhere – as you will from anywhere you stay up here – you’re not in NYC anymore!  Just in case, here’s the phone number for the Harriman cab service we used:  845-783-6112.

À demain,

k.
