Gawking Is Gauche, Except at the Eagles
By ELSA BRENNER
IT ''S not that the hamlet of Callicoon, cradled between the western Catskill Mountains of New York and the Poconos of Pennsylvania, is just being discovered. It only looks that way.
Situated along the upper Delaware River, in western Sullivan County, N.Y., the hamlet has been luring city-weary folks for more than 150 years.
The main difference between then and now is that during the mid-1800 and early 1900's, those in search of a respite from the congestion of New York City and its suburbs traveled to Callicoon by train, along tracks that these days carry only freight. They spent the summer months in rambling boarding houses, hotels and popular resorts that populated the area.
Now, the out-of-towners arrive in S.U.V. ''s and minivans to kayak on the Delaware, swim and fish in its waters, cross-country ski during the winter on the area ''s expansive hillsides and write or paint in studios fashioned from old barns and outbuildings that are on the countryside. Also, they visit all year long now, spending weekends in old farmhouses, Victorians, cabins and bungalows that they have bought and restored.
And even though the actors Debra Winger, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Lopez spend time in the area, and part of the movie Transamerica was filmed in Callicoon (Duncan Tucker, the movie's director and writer, lives there) celebrity-gawking is considered gauche. What generates far more excitement in Callicoon and its neighboring hamlets in the town of Delaware, N.Y., and in across-the-river Damascus Township, Pa., are the sightings of bald eagles '' nests high in trees along the majestic river '' and of their occupants soaring in the skies.
With the spotlight on the environment, the operative word among second-home owners in the Callicoon area, especially when it comes to matters of style, is understatement. For the most part, the part-timers dogs are Labradors and mixed breeds, and their dress code calls for jeans, cut-offs and T-shirts, day and evening, whether hiking, kayaking or biking, or dining out yielding few clues to the people walking or wearing them.
The unassuming presentations notwithstanding, there are bankers, business owners, playwrights, artists and interior designers among the part-timers, who make up about 50 percent of the population. A varied group, they are young, middle-aged and old; liberal and conservative; single and married; heterosexual and homosexual; and of different ethnicities.
What unites them is their shared passion for the outdoors and a delight in homespun community activities like pancake breakfasts and tractor parades.
There is little nightlife to speak of in this former logging community, save for several restaurants, like Matthew's on Main Street and the 1906 Restaurant, and a single-screen movie theater. But the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, a concert site, opened July 1 on the location of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, 12 miles away.
GETTING THERE By car from the George Washington Bridge, take the Palisades Interstate Parkway north for 17 miles to the New York State Thruway north; continue for 21 miles and, at Exit 16, take Route 17 west for 45 miles to Exit 104; then take Route 17B to the hamlet of Callicoon. Do not turn off toward Callicoon Center.
