Pink Pig in Essex, New York

Pink Pig in Essex, New York

I think it is often the case, little Eastern towns, once major players in shaping early history but left in the dust of Manifest Destiny,come round again attaining glorious new heights when some event precipitates a chain-reaction. I-Pads, Phones and technology in general allow connectivity, in turn allowing Manhattanites- as an example- to live here -in the Great White North – at least part of the time. Clearly there is a ripple effect along the Adirondack Coast and it’s rousing little towns. (Ripples in Essex, NY)

Hats off to Linda Coffin who’s recent post on the Pink Pig Designer’s Blog dishes up a smorgasbord of Essex charm, snark and gossip. Meandering from the inviting window displays at the Pink Pig (and the eclectic assortment of offerings within) to the perils of driving in Essex without your seat belt fastened, Coffin’s post reads like a lighthearted chat over coffee with the perennially smiling Essex resident. And her observation about a revitalizing Adirondack Coast (and the Essex Renaissance in particular) is nowhere more apparent than the intersection of Rt. 22 and Main Street where Debbie Schrodt’s Pink Pig is percolating with energy, design inspiration and the enticing aroma of fresh java. Enjoy!

Essex is Buzzing with Activity

Historic Essex on Lake Champlain has welcomed a number of new businesses, rebounding positively from record high water this spring. In fact, the community is not just ready to welcome visitors for the summer – it is veritably BUZZING with activity. via (Lake Placid, NY)

The good folks at Adirondack regional tourism revisited their Essex story now that summer in Essex is in full swing. In the weeks in between the new businesses, the buzzing activity and enthusiasm has ripened into nothing short of an Essex renaissance. I’ve heard this reference at least a half dozen times this weekend alone! There’s a zeitgeist, a collective optimism and vision of community revitalization that has buoyed our community ever since we triumphed over Lake Champlain’s flood waters.

Welcome one and all to Essex on Lake Champlain, our fair hamlet buzzing with activity. And thank you to the countless energies who are making this dream come true. Thank you to the business owners who’ve invested their treasure, time and dreams in the future of Essex. Thank you to the hard working employees hustle and smile and create the magical lifestyle that beguiles residents and visitors alike. Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed, encouraged and shared the bounty of gifts on offer in Essex. And thank you to all who have celebrated and broadcast the exciting story of an Essex renaissance.

Here’s to a spectacular August!

Almost twenty four hours later, Sunday morning, the heat wave has abated. Slightly. And yet looking at this snapshot I captured on my phone yesterday instantly summons the sweaty flush I felt riding my bike to breakfast at Essex Provisions.

These fellows were already up and hard at work. I suppose Saturday morning is as good a time as any to paint new lines and handicap parking designations onto the newly laid, still warm tarmac. Unless you’ve been sweating in the heat all week! But no complaints from this hardworking crew hustling to get the job done so that you can enjoy the Essex renaissance! 😉

Greenbeans at the Old Dock

Have you tried the Greenbeans at the Old Dock in Essex, New York? I wandered in late last night, but caught their last set. These local boys from Willsboro can really put a sway in your slouch, a tap-tap-tap in your toes and a green bean eating grin on your mug. I plan to learn more about them post haste, and I’ll pass the news your way soon. In the mean time, pull out your calendar or PDA and add Greenbeans at the Old Dock next Wednesday from 7:00 – 11:30 pm. And every other Wednesday this summer. Did I mention it’s an open mic? The Greenbeans will be hosting this weekly musical variety show which means lots of local talent peppered between their sets. Are you a musician? Step up to the mic!

Live Well had a free Community Movement session today where the public was welcome to come in and use the space for their own quiet movement practices like Yoga and Tai Chi. The energy was great! And we look forward to having Community Movement every Monday at 9am. We also hosted Community Chair Massage which is a time for people who can afford the time or money for a full hour massage to still get bodywork in the company for $1 a minute. Families, children, everyone! is welcome. Community Chair Massage is from 10-11:30 every Monday. We’re excited to offer these programs to the community and look forward to next week!
