Dancing Under the Stars Garner Historic District Haverstraw, NY August 4th

Published

on

Haverstraw, NY – The name of Haverstraw is one of the oldest in the geography of North America. The word is Dutch and it first appeared on a map in 1616. It was originally written, Haverstroo, and means “Oat Straw”, descriptive of the waving straw of the river meadows.

In 1609 Henry Hudson, an Englishman employed by the Dutch East India Company, sailed his ship, the Half Moon, up the river that would bear his name in a vain search for the legendary Northwest passage. He sailed as far as what is now Albany and on the return trip the Half Moon anchored in what is now Haverstraw Bay, the widest point in the river.

The GARNER Historic District is a landmark, pre-Civil War factory complex located in the lower Hudson Valley region of New York, just one-half hour from Manhattan. A former textile mill, the complex now houses light industry, wholesale distributors and artists and artisans. In addition, the complex boasts an on-site restaurant, brewery, coffee bean roaster, personal training facilities and a ballet school. This eclectic mix of tenants has led to the development of a flourishing and vital industrial and arts community.
