"Esopus offers nature, peace, privacy and four seasons of outdoor activities,” Real estate agent with Corcoran Country Living, Richard Vizzini, told the New York Times. "There are always more buyers than homes to buy, based on how attractive the area is to New York City residents. Some properties have creek and river access, which is always appealing to buyers.”


The article states how many discovered the "natural beauty" of the area during the pandemic.

"This Ulster County town is known for its nature preserves, waterfront homes and quietly affluent residents: ‘They’re not in-your-face flashy,'" the article states.
