My girlfriend and I are in NYC over New year for a week. We were hoping to get out of the city for a day and enjoy some countryside. I've read that it's easy enough to get a train to the Catskills from Penn station but my question is where is the best place for me get off? I'll continue to read up on this but we were hoping that maybe a picturesque village/small town may be accessible and worth a visit...somewhere with maybe a market or small, specialised shops.
I could be getting the complete wrong idea of the area and it may end up that we just stay in the city but if anybodu can offer any advice or suggest something that may suit than I'd be very appreciative.
