“Free live music every Friday night (& some Sat nights) at the town beach. Bring chairs or a blanket, your own food and drinks and enjoy the view from the NY side all the way to NJ. Life guard on duty during the day for kids and theater productions some evenings. ”

Fire Station
“Greenwood Lake is one of New York State's largest recreational lakes. In the summer people enjoy the beachfront and boat rentals. Over the last few years its becoming more or more popular with great restaurants. The Helm is open Thur-Sun and is a gastropub which is extremely popular (read you may have to wait a while for a table). But when you just want to sit outside and enjoy the views of the lake with food/drink - you can head over to Emerald Pointe - they have a big outdoor space and outside bar/gazebo. Try the veggie pizza! ”

“Though small, this place really has almost everything you would need in a pinch. The owner is also a butcher, and the meat selection is great - better than any supermarket, and much closer.”
