Brewster or Southeast? Both Have Fun Things to do
We ❤ both, but Brewster, New York is our featured "Hometown of the Week".
Right out of the gate we learned that Brewster is a village in the town of Southeast and everyone in the 10509 zip code, including the post office, refer to the town as Brewster, not Southeast. Even the postmarks the post office puts on mail say Brewster, not Southeast.
Regardless of what you want to call it, there is some cool history and some really fun things that you can do in Brewster, or Southeast.
Ice Skating is Alive and Well in Brewster
Sean in Pawling texted us that if you like to ice skate, or maybe play ice hockey, the Brewster Ice Arena is the best place to do it. They must be doing something right as they have been serving the "skating" community for 23 years. They're located at 63 Fields Ln, Brewster.
Tilly Foster Farm
Joe called the show to tell us about the Tilly Foster Farm which was a farm museum for many years. It's now home to "Putnam County's premier education and farm-to-table dining experience. Food and education, I love it!! They're located at 100 NY-312, Brewster.
Local Farm Stands
Linda from Warwick texted us, "There is a great little gem in Brewster/Southeast. It’s called the R & G Farmstand. They are at 997 route 22 Brewster NY. In the Levine’s auto parts lot. Every Saturday until Thanksgiving. Lots of fresh veggies and fruit, bread eggs, and more. Love getting my fresh veggies there from Mike!"
Old School Drive-In Restaurant & Hardware Store
Dawn from Brewster told us about two places we should definitely check out, the Red Rooster in Brewster. A throw-back drive-in type restaurant offering great burgers, shakes, and more. They are located at 1566 NY-22, Brewster. She also mentioned, "Palmer Brothers Hardware! Nice family-run local store!"
