Tivoli, New York: The Hudson's authentification
12 years ago, when Lisa Schwarzbaum bought a second home, she could have chosen the opposite of her Upper West Side apartment: a country area a mile away from the first one. Instead, she selected a home in the centre of Tivoli, a town of 1,100 inhabitants in northwestern Dutchess County.
Familiar with all the horrific scenes of deserted homes, she chose to be surrounded by neighbours such as Emily Majer, a cabinetmaker who specialises in conservation and is also Tivoli's mayoress. As Mrs. Schwarzbaum's cellar was inundated - damp basements are usual in Tivoli, which lies on the east shore of the Hudson River - Mrs. Majer called the fire brigade to evacuate.

"Not just driving up 9G, turning off and through Tivoli and out," she said, stating why she thinks Tivoli is more like a working hamlet than a touristy pit-stop.
Second home occupants like Mrs. Schwarzbaum, who spend half of her life in the town, have a tendency to become deeply rooted and even solid. Various architectonic genres can be found in and around Tivoli's 1. 8 sq m. Historical river-faced manors and several annexes are the most magnificent specimens, even if they are just remnants of the pristine plots owned by Hudson Valley's famous land owners, such as the Livingston people.
These are the most famous part-time inhabitants of Tivoli, among them the Mardens, who own the 23-acre Rose Hill property constructed in 1843, and the publishing house Jann Wenner; his is the 69-acre Teviot property, which was constructed in the same year. The covered workers' homes on Feroe Avenue near Broadway are more humble and open, dating from the turn of the twentieth Century when Tivoli had a shirt mill and a grist mill.
The same applies to the farmhouses and condominiums in a division north-west of the city centre. Due to the high level of interest and the small number of Tivoli (the 2010 survey had only 570 residential units), the stock is in chronic short supply.
