“Nyack is one-of-a-kind — a village with an amazing array of eclectic shops, service establishments and eateries recognized as among the best in the Hudson Valley,” said Roger Cohen, President of the Nyack Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a winter ‘wanderland,’ with shops and restaurants you could never find anywhere else. It’s heaven for the discerning shopper — and a festive holiday respite from the hustle and bustle of the season.”
