On Long Lake And Our Area...
Governor Cuomo has announced that the Essex Chain of Lakes is now open to the public for the first time in 100 years. That’s the headline.
For those of us in the Five Towns of Newcomb, Indian Lake, North Hudson, Minerva and Long Lake, we say… WELCOME! Come on in and we’re glad you’re here and let us tell you how to get there from here.
