Just fifty-five miles from New York City, the Town of Warwick includes three unique villages (Florida, Greenwood Lake, and Warwick) and five hamlets (Amity, Bellvale, Edenville, New Milford, and Pine Island) as well as New Jersey neighbor Vernon Township.
Pine Island and Florida’s fertile black dirt produce 25 percent of the nation’s onion crop as well as organic vegetables, sod, and flower crops. This rich farmland, formed 12,000 years ago by a glacial lake, was cleared by hand in the 1880’s by Polish and German immigrants and is farmed today by many of their descendants. Agriculture continues its economic importance, as innovative farmers seek alternative uses and markets for their crops.
Find a bounty of fresh local produce in full bloom from May thru November at The Warwick Valley Farmers’ Market – named one of the best in the county. Warwick’s natural beauty extends beyond its farmland to mountains, streams, and lakes.
Greenwood Lake is large enough to accommodate water sports. It has long been a popular summer resort of such famous entertainment and sports figures as Babe Ruth. The ten-mile-long lake straddles the New York/New Jersey border.
Warwick has achieved the well-earned status of a “Quality Community” through the office of New York’s Governor. Discover the agricultural richness of Warwick and see firsthand why we have been named a “Communities in Bloom International Challenge 2010” winner. Warwick is also proudly a “Tree City USA” Exciting events, fairs and festivals are held in the Warwick Valley throughout the year.
Whether you plan to spend your time relaxing or on the go, our wide array of activities ensures that there is something for everyone. You’ll find it all in the Warwick Valley.
