It might seem a little bit strange to talk about holiday shopping during the first weeks of spring — especially if you are the kind of person who cringes when they see Santa in the stores right after Halloween.
Clayton White spoke to Nyack merchants about last year’s holiday shopping season. The lessons learned from last year can inform local marketing decisions for today, tomorrow and next Xmas.

You don’t know me, but it’s likely we have a lot in common. I’m a mom with three kids, the youngest of which is in middle school. I have a master’s degree in liberal studies with a concentration in African American culture. During my professional career I’ve worked as an art director, a journalist and a freelance graphic designer. I’ve spent several years caring for an elderly family member. We have a lot in common. Except that you probably have a home and I don’t.
The Nyack Pour House got a celebrity makeover this week to benefit two local non-profits.
A new menu for the main street bar and restaurant, designed by celebrity chef Brian Duffy, will be unveiled at a charity event on Friday from 7-10p. Duffy is a regular cast member of Spike TV’s Bar Rescue. Proceeds from Duffy’s menu makeover will benefit the Nyack Fire Department and the Friends of the Nyacks.

On a Winter’s Day not long ago, I spied the picturesque Hudson River through a thick blanket of clouds covering the icy gray water. On days like this, my mind can’t help but wander to thoughts of warm sunshine and sailing. Visions of billowy sails and the sound of water rushing past the hull warm my soul. What better place to enjoy the river than the Nyack Boat Club?
