The village of Nyack has been a thriving commercial center for Rockland County since the 1870’s. The Historical Society of the Nyacks’ new exhibit features photographs and memorabilia from the many shops that provided both necessities and luxury goods. Groceries, bakeries, clothing shops, shoe stores, hardware stores, laundries, newspaper and stationary stores, cigar stores and saloons: Nyack businesses in the years before the appearance of shopping malls will be showcased at the Historical Society of the Nyacks’ Museum.

The exhibit will open Sunday March 6th and will continue Sundays through May 29th at the Historical Society of the Nyacks Museum, 50 Piermont Avenue, Nyack NY 10960. The museum is situated in the lower level of the historic Depew House across the street from Nyack’s Memorial Park and adjacent to the Nyack Library parking lot off Hudson Street.
