Sean Eldridge: "I’m not going to run again"

Sean Eldridge, a young political upstart who lost the election for New York's 19th Congressional District from Republican Chris Gibson last year, has finally made it public: He won't be running for election again.

Eldridge, a first-time Democratic challenger, lost the race for Gibson's seat by 30 points in a drubbing that received national attention.

That's because Eldridge is one half of a prominent gay power couple. His husband is Chris Hughes, a multi-millionaire who helped Mark Zuckerberg found Facebook. 

Right after the election, Eldridge refused to answer questions from the Watershed Post about whether or not he would run again in the 19th District, which covers much of the Catskills and the Hudson Valley.  Read more

Cabin Hill Farmhouse

See video

Built circa 1920, this gracious country home offers style, comfort, a beautiful location and is a step back in time. The home features two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, a comfortable dining room, an eat-in kitchen and a sun parlor. The house has been well maintained and retains much of the original 1920s charm and character including a lovely cherry bannister, wood floors, period lighting fixtures and wood moldings. The rocking chair porch is a perfect place to watch the sun set or have your morning coffee.

The 5.80 acres are mostly open fields with some beautiful mature trees. The acreage is gently sloped and because there are two legal tax parcels could be developed. The house sits back from the road and has wonderful mountain views, a spring fed pond and some beautiful plantings. The naturalistic pond is a magnet for birds and other wildlife — it’s a wonderful place sit back and take in the beautiful country setting. Adding to value of the property is a garden shed, a NYCDEP septic, and perennial gardens.  Read more
