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!
