Van Zandt. If you're a fan of The Sopranos, I'm sure the loss of Tony Sirico struck you like a ton of bricks, I loved him, and everything he did on-screen made me howl with laughter. Well, Vincent 'Big Pussy' Pastore is coming to perform live in Pawling, so, take care of that thing for me, and let's go.

Now we have a chance to see Pussy Bompinsero...uh...I mean Big Pussy, this Thursday in Pawling, NY. Vincent Pastore's Gangster Squad will perform live at Daryl's House on Rt. 22 this Thursday evening, July 14, 2022, at 8PM. What can you expect?

Nuclear Lake in Pawling, NY Has an Explosive History

Nuclear Lake is not just a clever name, it's a literal one. Tucked away in the woods of Pawling, NY, once sat a secret research facility. On the shores of the 55 acre body of water, were labs conducting experiments, using uranium and plutonium. The Lake can be accessed by anyone walking the Appalachian Trail in Dutchess County, but should it?
