The launch issue examines both literal and figurative corridors bringing people into Dutchess County and carrying them onward.

We are very excited about this issue as it continues to evolve, including a great assembly of writers!

* This table of contents has evolved somewhat.  There will be more genealogy contained in the Quaker article.  The Amos Agard genealogy is being reserved for another issue more gepgraphically aligned.  A second photo montage of Walkway Over the Hudson's opening weekend will round out the issue.
