Not the actual location of the famous festival (that is Bethel, N.Y.), and a bit of a tourist trap, but yes, lots of hippies live here.

gotta admitt, i only go to woodstock for the full moon circle, so i guess my vision of woodstock is kinda skewed...im never there during the day, and i never shop there...
Posted by steven on 2005-10-09 15:31:30 My Score: Hey dominic,
I don't know the last time you were in Woodstock BUUUUUT,
It's become so commercial and you can't sit in the park without seeing 10 Hummers go buy trailed by a few BMW's and Mercedes. And the music your hearing from that store is to give you the feeling of peace but look what you paid? Sorry,going into to a silver store in woodstock and seeing some corperate husbands wife in a tiedyed skirt trying to sell you a simple silver braclet for $175.00 is sick.
If I where you I'd check out the village and you'll see what I mean...
I've lived in the area for my whole life and went to Bethel in 1969..The fat cats continue to take over.just with different hats........
Posted by dominic on 2005-07-27 18:09:55 My Score: ah, woodstock. similar to arcata in that when you go hang out there its just a quaint little town in the middle of the woods, and you might expect it to be conservative and the people to be "hicks" (i consider this to be a classist term, but i dont know what else to say). but then you start to meet people, and they're big-time hippies. the thing about woodstock is that there is no college, so most of the hippies are acid heads, drop outs, freaks, or artists (none of which are bad things, it just makes for a very interesting mix). but, this is an east coast hippie town, which means its a lot easier to relax and kind of do your own thing, as opposed to arcata or eugene, where you have wanna be hippsters and spangers up your ass.
drum circle every full moon in the magic meadow should be enough to put this place on the map.
the other day i was there and i went into a gas station at like one in the morning. the cashier looked like any other "back-woods-rural-town-joe," but he was listening to peter paul and marys version of blowing in the wind and said "peace" as i left with my motor oil and potato chips.
thats how you know your in woodstock, and it feels good...

Posted by wizarddrew77 on 2005-01-25 03:07:15 My Score: I went up for a visit and moved in New Years 2005-Best move of my life. I have no intentions of ever leaving now. If you want to be who you are and live with people just like you-come to Woodstock NY it still rocks and stop by and do a bowl with The Wiz Peace!
Posted by wizarddrew77 on 2004-02-28 00:30:52 My Score: Great town and vibes. Try Sayville Long island too for some fun!
Posted by WoodstockTheFlowerChild on 2003-04-18 21:24:08 My Score: I love going to Woodstock in 69;that's how I got my nickname. It was a long time ago, but it still ranks #1 as far as adventures go, and I still keep the tradition of peace and love. Later, Woodstock
Posted by Warmwalt on 2002-12-18 21:40:26 My Score: The Village of Woodstock N.Y. has been an arts colony for over 100 years. Several arts organizatons are still showing and teaching arts. It is music haven with many old rockers living in the area. There are free community dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Local cable tv acess shows. Free mail boxes at Family a social service agency. Lots of wied people. Sunday peace protest in the Square. Full moon drum circle, Up the mountain every month. Many street people who "camp out" year around. Some vending opportunities with lots of summer tourists. Library has free internet access.
Nearby towns pretty cool too. See New Paultz. Go to Cronogram.com for day to day events.
