"Learn The History of Illustrative Art and Enjoy Concerts in the Park: It's All In Marlboro, NY!"

Part of the Township of Marlborough, Marlboro (sounds the same, just spelled differently) is nestled in beautiful, spacious Ulster County in one of the oldest farming communities of New York State. In fact, Marlboro is home to the oldest preserved home of one of the oldest Jewish families, the Gomez House. It is also the home of Ulster's very first paper mill. Ulster is not very diverse in race, however it is diverse with ethnicity; overall, it's a predominantly White community, but this does not mean it is all-inclusive.

Marlboro itself has quite a few fun attractions for visitors as well as residents. People interested in history will love the Museum for Preservation of the lllustrative Arts, which teaches visitors about the history of cartoon animation and digital arts, such as the images on magazines, for one example. There's also a couple of vineyards in town, such as Windsor Vineyards and Glory Farm Winery, reminding one of the rich agricultural heritage in the area. Visitors and residents alike will enjoy the town's many Concerts in the Park, and the Marlboro High School's pool offers water aerobatics to anyone who wishes to partake. There's a lot of parks in the area (especially Marlborough Township's hamlet Milton's Milton Riverfront Park, which is right on the Hudson River and a great venue for music and family fun. You also are right near Kayaderosseras Creek, which is a great place to spend the day fishing or just enjoying the quiet splendor and art of Mother Nature.

Marlboro has lots of convenient shops and restaurants, such as Tattoo Fantasy, Dollar General, CVS and others; there's restaurants like Marlboro's renowned “The Falcon”, which is a live music venue with great food, promising great times for all involved. There's Cibo Noche, where you can find meals like Salmon Filet and Horseradish Crust or Grilled New York Strip Steak. There's also your favorite Chinese takeout, China Star, and the Racoon Saloon or Hidden Cellar and Wine Bar promises a fun night out on the town and a great selection of drinks to meet everyone's favorite taste.

Marlboro is serviced by Marlboro School District and the nearby Milton Railroad Station which can take you to NYC for more fun in New York. Nearby St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital of Cornwall is a fantastic acute care center to meet all of your medical needs. Marlboro School District is fair (a rating of 6 out of 10 by most students and parents alike). Overall Marlboro is your averge town in Ulster County with a couple of perks like a great community and restaurants, and your own Marlboro Free Library which offers programs for everyone. Creative folk, don't forget to visit the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (also in Marlboro) and those in need of a great workout as well as interested in meditation, visit Bootleg Yoga. Housing is average for most of Ulster County; generally fine for middle to upper class. You'll have a great time visiting Marlboro---which has nothing to do with cigarettes and is a lot more beautiful than its name suggests!
