Remember When Taylor Swift Went Apple Picking in Dutchess County?

As Hudson Valley residents, over the last few years, we have gotten used to seeing big named celebrities casually walking around the neighborhood. That's thanks to all the movies filming in the area. This summer alone was one of the busiest for filming. Writer and actress Mindy Kaling had an HBO production filming in Dutchess County. Amy Schumer was working on her new project for Hulu, Life of Beth, in LaGrange, Poughkeepsie and Red Hook. Woody Harrelson was seen just about everywhere in the Hudson Valley while filming White House Plumbers.

SUNY Plans To Wipe Out $125 Million Tuition and Fees Incurred During The Pandemic

My oldest was away at college when the coronavirus pandemic started. At the time, we thought it was better for him to stay there, where the infection rate was low, instead of coming home to New York. Then a few months later they closed down the campus, went to remote learning, and pretty much canceled every amenity that you'd expect on a college campus...including the cafeteria.
