Congrats Marsh on getting the daily double! The city was New City, New York.
Here's some quick information about New City:

  • Coe's Tavern - Formerly at northeast corner of Route 45 & New Hempstead Road - On two occasions Continental Army troops encamped here. Maj. Tallmadge and his dragoons halted here when taking Joshua Heft Smith and Mjr. John Andre from West Point to Tappan in 1780.
  • Cropsey Farm, 230 Little Tor Road - This is one of the five remaining vegetable and fruit farms in Rockland County. The farmhouse and its twin, China Echo farmhouse were built of native red sandstone around 1769 by the Blauvelt brothers and is one of the oldest existing barns in the county.
  • Dutch Garden - Designed by Mary Mowbray Clarke, a West Nyack native, in 1933-34 as memorial to county's early settlers, and won "Garden of the Year" from Better Home and Gardens magazine in 1935. Master craftsman Biaglo Gugliuzzo of Garnerville created walks and latticed walls of Haverstraw brick. Still standing is Tea House with carvings of mountains, windmills and other serene symbols representing aspects of Dutch-American history, others of motifs popular in 1930's - Popeye, the Baker Cocoa and Old Dutch Cleanser maids. Over the years, it served as a site for weddings and for concerts. It has been said that folk singer Burl Ives once performed there and that Eleanor Roosevelt visited the garden. Markers on site. Now a county park with beautiful display of flowering bulbs in spring.
