Earlier this year, an article on Hudson Valley Magazine (http://www.hvmag.com) titled, “7 Top Towns: Best Places to Live in the Hudson Valley in 2012”, named Chatham as one of the 7 top towns. The article pointed out Chatham’s country charm, diverse dining options and, of course, its single traffic light.
From the article:
Want the real country: farmland, horses, nobody in sight for miles? Head north — almost as far as you can go on the Taconic Parkway — to the town of Chatham. Spread over 53 square miles on the border between Columbia and Rensselaer counties — and about 15 miles from the Massachusetts border — Chatham is so downright cute that the Berkshires often claim it as their own. While it may be small and difficult to reach without a car (the nearest Amtrak stop is in Hudson), its primo location between Albany, New York, and Boston ensures that Chatham continues to thrive.
