About our home

THIS IS A BEAUTRIFUL CONDOMINIUM COMMUNITY CALLED LAKESIDE COLONY. WE LIVE IN A SPACIOUS 2 BEDROOM 2 BATHROOM HOME. WE ALSO HAVE A LOFT WITH TV AND HIGH-SPEED COMPUTER ACCESS. LIVING ROOM, DINING ROOM, AND EAT -IN KITCHEN. DECK OVERLOOKING BACKYARD, LAKE ACROSS THE STREET, SWIMMING POOL, TENNIS COURTS AND CENTRAL AIR-CONDITIONING. BRIGHT, CHEERY LOCATION. CABLE TV WITH OVER 50 CHANNELS 24 HOURS A DAY. ASSIGNED PARKING SPACE IN FRONT OF UNIT. I AM A HISTORY TEACHER. I TEACH 13 YEAR OLD CHILDREN. I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS AGED 12 AND 14. THEY ATTEND A NEARBY PRIVATE SCHOOL. I AM 47 YEARS OLD. I HAVE 3 BIRDS AND ONE TURTLE THAT MAY BE HOME AT THE TIME. IF YOU DON'T WANT THEM AROUND, I WILL MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THEM. IN ADDITION TO CENTRAL AIR-CONDITIONING, EACH ROOM HAS A CEILING FAN. HARDWOOD FLOORS THROUGHOUT THE UNIT.

MY CONDO IS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. IT IS IN A PRIVATE COMMUNITY, HOWEVER ONCE YOU LEAVE THE CONDO COMMUNITY THERE IS PLENTY OF SHOPPING. WITHIN 5 MINUTES AWAY YOU WILL BE AT A 24 HOUR SUPERMARKET. WE HAVE 2 SHOPPING MALLS WITHIN 5 MINUTES AS WELL. HOWEVER, THE BEST FEATURE FOR A VISITOR HAS TO BE IT'S CENTRAL LOCATION. WE ARE A 1 HOUR TRAIN RIDE FROM 42ND STREET IN NYC. THE TRAINS RUN EVERY HOUR UNTIL ABOUT MIDNIGHT. SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO PURCHASE A WEEKLY TRAIN PASS AND GO TO THE CITY DAILY. ALSO WE ARE 20 MINUTES FROM THE BEAR MOUNTAIN STATE PARK AND WEST POINT. NEW JERSEY IS WITHIN AN HOUR DISTANCE, CONNECTICUT IS 1/2 HOUR AWAY. OUTLET SHOPPING IN NEW ENGLAND IS CONVENIENT, BECAUSE OUR PREMISES IS 3 MILES FROM THE TACONIC STATE PARKWAY, WHICH GOES DIRECTLY UP TO VERMONT. TO GO TO JONES BEACH WHICH IS AN ATLANTIC OCEAN BEACH TAKES ABOUT 1 HOUR. JERSEY SHORE BEACHES ARE ABOUT 3 HOURS AWAY. WE HAVE FREE PASSES TO WONDERFUL HISTORIC HUDSON VALLEY HOUSES. THESE ARE HISTORICAL HOUSES THAT RE-CREATE PAST TIMES. FDR'S HOME IN HYDE PARK IS ABOUT 45 MINUTES AWAY. THERE IS THE CULINARY INSTITUTE OF AMERICA NEAR FDR'S PLACE WHERE YOU CAN OBTAIN A WONDERFUL LUNCH FOR A SMALL PRICE. HERE AT THE CONDO YOU HAVE TENNIS COURTS THAT ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE, A SWIMMING POOL THAT IS OPEN UNTIL 8:00 MOST NIGHTS, A LAKE WHICH YOU CAN SWIM OR FISH IN. MY FAMILY LOVES LIVING HERE IN MOHEGAN LAKE. WE WOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE NEIGHBORLY CONNECTIONS FOR YOU IN CASE YOU NEED ADVICE OR ASSISTANCE IN ANYWAY.

AS I SAID, I AM A HISTORY TEACHER FOR 8TH GRADE STUDENTS. I TRAVEL ONE HOUR TO GET TO WORK. BUT I LIKE MY JOB AND THE STUDENTS SO I AM VERY HAPPY. I HAVE 2 DAUGHTERS WHO ARE A PLEASURE TO HAVE AROUND. IN THE SAME MONTH, THEY EACH ONE THE "GENTLENESS" AWARD IN EACH OF THEIR CLASSES. THE CHILDREN DO COMMUNITY SERVICE, AS A WAY OF SHOWING GRATITUDE FOR WHAT THEY HAVE AND SPREADING IT AROUND. MY DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN TRAVELLERS SINCE THEY WERE TODDLERS, SO THEY ARE LIKE PROFESSIONALS AT IT. WE HAVE TRAVELED THE U.S. EXTENSIVELY, ALL OVER THE CARIBBEAN, CANADA AND EUROPE. OBVIOUSLY I SPEAK ENGLISH, HOWEVER I STUDIED SPANISH AND FRENCH IN SCHOOL. I AM NOT FLUENT, HOWEVER I AM ABLE TO UNDERSTAND QUITE A BIT. WE ATTEND A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH WHICH IS NEARBY. OUR NEIGHBORHOOD HAS EVERY DENOMINATION AVAILABLE FOR WORSHIP.
