East Side, West Side
First it was billboards along Route 9G, entering and exiting Hudson, meant to lure people across the bridge to Catskill. Now it seems Catskill, the village, is trying to lure a chef to its Main Street with the promise of a restaurant rent-free for a year: "Small Town Desperate for Chef, Offers Rent-Free Restaurant." Nina Sklansky, the author of the billboard copy, is quoted in the article, speaking of the goals of Catskill's "rebranding," as saying, "God forbid if the place turns into something like Hudson."
