Fleischmanns is Rising to the Challenge
When I started researching Fleischmanns New York, I had the irresistible tendency to think of yeast. One might say that Fleischmanns has already risen to prominence, for in the World War II era, it was the place to go for New Yorkers looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
After WWII, though, Fleischmanns experienced a major decline, along with a lot of the Catskill region. Tourism money wasn’t coming in, and slowly businesses and homes were shuttered. These days, the town of Fleischmanns, according to its website, is valiantly struggling to come out from under its depressed atmosphere. It is also actively marketing itself as a destination, cherishing the slogan “Come for Serenity - Stay for the Scene”.
The scene in Fleischmanns, 15 miles from Phoenicia, and 138 miles north of New York City, has to include skiing. While reviewers say that the town of Fleischmanns is a bit run down and not a destination of itself, they do agree on one great thing: the proximity of skiing. Within ten miles of the town lay Halcott Mountain, Border Shand / Westkill, Dry Brook Ridge, and Belleayre Ski Center. So if you’re looking for a vacation rental accommodation or a bed & breakfast, check out this town. Vacation rentals are especially great for families. A skiing trip to New York’s Catskill region is a memory for a lifetime.
