Phoenicia Street Scene
Phoenicia, a lively town in New York's Catskill Mountains, has the Esopus Creek running through it; thus it is a mecca for the sport of tubing. The Esopus flooded its banks during Hurricane Irene and washed out the bridge that connects Phoenicia with the outside world, but you can't keep good Catskillians down. They rallied, rebuilt the bridge, and the town is as thriving as ever. This image shows Main Street looking toward Mt. Tremper, the peak that dominates the town.
