Supervisor Bloomfield, “One of things about Goshen is the historic charm and beauty of our community”. Bringing in more traffic is a deterrent to the quality of life. “Water has always been an issue. We don’t have an overabundance of water”.
Goshen, a town and village of three square miles about 50 miles northwest of New York City, represents a mixture of the old and the new that is typical of other communities sprinkled throughout the Valley. Its historic heritage dates back to 1714, and can be seen in well-preserved residential and public architecture.
