A Summer Home for the New York Philharmonic
The Poughkeepsie Journal let the cat out of the bag last week. The New York Philharmonic is looking for a summer home--what would be to them what Tanglewood is the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Apparently, they have narrowed it down to two sites: some vacant land across Route 9 from the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park and Olana. According to Ken Flood, who reported all this to the Board of Supervisors' Economic Development & Agriculture Committee this evening, Olana is appealing because of Hudson--its restaurants and what's going on here. The New York Philharmonic summering in our midst--wouldn't that be loverly!
