Am I the Only One That’s Never Heard of Circleville, NY?
I never knew this place existed in the Hudson Valley. I'm the first one to admit that I'm new to the Mid-Hudson area and I'm still learning my way around. I've gotten better, when I first moved here, I thought Monticello was in Dutchess County and Rhinebeck was 5 mins away from Wappingers Falls (I know...go ahead and laugh). Every now and then I'll hear about a spot around here and I'll have no idea where it is. That happened the other day...
