Grocery Store
“Eddie's is a bit pricey but is nearby if you're in a pinch. They also carry a lot of local specialty items like Taharka Brothers Ice Cream and snacks from Kinderhook Bakery. They have a modest salad bar and a deli if you're nearby and have a hankering.”

Museum
“This museum is truly unique. If you are interested in African American history and identity, you should consider a visit. It is an often-overlooked destination because it is located outside of main tourism and commercial corridors.”

Cafe
“If you're up for a bit of an uphill walk, this place is incredible for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's incredible soul food with a cajun twist. Very small, might have to wait, so don't go if you're real hungry.”
