Who bought it?

Will they be laying off staff? That area's economy is in peril as it is.

It is vitally important that this property be purchased
or leased by a company which will not only add to Ellenville's tax base, but bring new "blood" into the area., with their
need for new housing to be satisfied (hopefully by local
realtors, builders and lumber companies). Ellenville, like so
many other small communities nationwide, which has seen
substantial declines in population to the "Sun belt" and
Southern States, has to offer more to new residents than
wishful thinking/scenery. There must be substantial benefits
to relocating (or remaining) to the Ellenville area.
I am not opposed to gambling or anything else that can attract
new people. "Locals" should not be shortsighed about progress
and what it entails. I have found a home away from home...at least a few days a week at the refurbished Farmer's Market, a local popular tourist attraction. I am amazed at the enthusiasm
shown (by tourists) at the many small fruit and vegetable
stands..and the purchases. Perhaps the grass (or tomatoes and
lettuce)is better here, I don't know? I wonder sometimes why
all the excitement? But they bring needed revenue to we

Sometimes it's better to simply leave an area for
greener pastures. I've seen Ellenville decline on my trips
back East over the years...especially after urban renewal
never fulfilled it's promise. But that is history.
We have a tourist attraction called The Farmer's Market.
It was on the decline until a developer purchased the adjacent
property (near CBS studios), and built a huge, modern
outdoor, mall. The entire area now is booming with economic
life. I don't realistially envision anything similar for
Ellenville, but a small farmer's market seems like it
could be viable. It would have to be open year round, and
offer more than just food stall. If gambling ever comes to
the area, a diversion in Ellenville...not a super department
store however, seems like it could attract tourists..and
maybe even "locals". But I admit, considering what I've seen
and the latest closures of major industial plants...it will
be an uphill battle.

I moved here fifteen years ago from Manhattan to find a place to raise a family.I love it here.My kids love it here.I could care less about providing local employment! Start commuting! What this area needs most is affordable commuter transit,not low paying industrial jobs that keep humans as slaves.Good riddance!As far as shopping locally,good luck! Every local business here (save a few)is more interested in a one time rip-off than a return customer! Turn their old shops into artist's studios and antique stores because I'll gladly spent more money on gas to not be treated like garbage by these spoiled cheap local businesses!
