    This was a sad 😢 time in 2011 when Hurricane Irene struck Boiceville Shokan Margaretville NY and Catskills NY and Woodstock NY

    I know that the entire disaster happened almost 7 years ago. I was 7 at the time (I am now 14) I used to live in Arkville ( a village not even a mile from the Margaretville hospital) my grandmother’s is house was destroyed and my aunt just stopped working at the Bun ‘n Cone because my family just last year moved to California and she and my grandmother are moving here too. The Catskill mountains in general stayed strong during the disaster.

    This is pretty insane. This is the Catskill area and these towns are way, way up in the mountains. I guess your safe nowwhere from floods

    Breathtaking footage. Thank you. And, yes, the village has come back and, with it, The Open Eye Theater, which I know well and love.

    A little over a year later Margaretville has made an amazing recovery with little signs of this devastating flood. The FreshTown supermarket was finally opened and most of the shops are back up and prospering. On a sad note the older gentleman (95+) who owned Main St. Jewelers died of a heart attack a few months after the disaster. His son refused for him to go see the devastation to his store and the whole tradegy was probably too much for him to bare. His son reopened the shop across the s

    I have never seen hay bales carried away by flood waters.   The "Venice" of New York.  Glad that the damage was not worse in Margaretville.

    Unbelievable! Me and my family stayed in BnB in the same area two weeks ago. Can’t imagine that the area was flooded like this same time last year.

    How was this possible with reports of only ten inches of rain? My god the roads all blown out that rapid current going through town. Crazy.
