Escape Brooklyn: A Guide to Livingston Manor, NY

27 Feb 2024 10:03 PM | Anonymous


In Sullivan County, 100 miles from New York City, Livingston Manor describes itself as “a small town with a big yard.” In 2019, Condé Nast declared it the “Catskills’ Newest Hotspot.” Through the two descriptions sound pretty far apart, as Livingston Manor locals with some authority – we agree with both.

Hotspot takes on another meaning in the Catskill Mountains; don’t come to town expecting a cityscape of nightlife and entertainment options. Sure, there are bars – and even a world-class art gallery – but Livingston Manor leans more leisure than excitement. This tiny town boasts excellent options for the outdoor-inclined, from world-famous fly fishing on its rivers to miles of hiking trails through its big back yard of forest, waterfalls, lakes and ponds. Livingston Manor is also home to a vibrant community of design, gift and outdoor shops, breweries, restaurants and bars – many of them part of a recent influx of creatives and entrepreneurs from the city.

The harmonious mix of its outdoor attractions and its great small businesses make Livingston Manor a wonderful place to visit, or live. Maybe even the best (wink, wink.)

Below, check out our guide to this very special town we call home – with our favorite spots to explore, eat, drink, stay and more.
