The ABCs – Affordable, Beautiful, Commutable.
Set in the heart of the Hudson River Valley, the cost of living and doing business in Greene County is a fraction of what it is downstate. Property taxes are some of the lowest in New York, and the natural splendor of our towns and villages is an international destination. High-Tech, Nano-Tech, and Bio-Tech jobs are booming in the Capital Region, and Makers & Producers in the Creative Economy are thriving throughout the Hudson Valley and Great Northern Catskill Mountains.
The Greene County Economic Development Corporation measures sustainable growth through major categories that serve as Economic Indicators for our county.

Opportunities abound across our 14 Catskill Mountain, Rural Valley, and Historic Hudson River Towns.
