USA/NY: Greene

Sometimes you stumble in interesting attractions without ever researching or hearing about them in advance. As we drove through central New York State via small county roads, we came to a tiny town called Greene. Turns out Greene is one of the oldest towns in the state, established in 1792 and named after Nathaniel Greene, a general in the Continental Army in the Revolutionary War. Before 1792, these lands and village belonged to the Oneida Indian tribes that lived here. The heart of Greene is the Genesee Street that is lined up with centuries-old buildings that look like you are in a Western movie set – storefronts, insurance, banks, city administration, restaurants.
