Roxbury is a small, rural town located at the eastern end of Delaware County in New Yorks Catskills Mountains. As of the 2000 census, the population was 2,509. Once a thriving commercial center, Roxbury is now mostly a residential community. The Main Street of town was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 and the entire hamlet was listed in the State and National Registers in 2003. Walking tours are available of the town. The township of Roxbury actually contains three separate areas: the hamlets of Roxbury, Grand Gorge and the Denver/Vega area. Altogether it is 90 square miles of sweeping mountain vistas, fresh, clean air and unspoiled charm. In the heart of the village is Kirkside Park, an 11-acre park with Adirondack bridges spanning the East Branch of the Delaware River and meandering paths - perfect for hiking, biking, fishing or picnicking. Grand Gorge is the hub of town with a vibrant business district, and the panoramic views of the Denver Vega Valley will take your breath away. Peaceful farmland, pasture and woodlands, the Denver Vega Valley has many secluded "second homes" tucked discretely away in the hills and hollows. Every Labor Day, Roxbury hosts the "Turn of the Century Days," when the clock is turned back to the late 1800s with a heritage festival celebrating the early days of the town.

Roxbury Weather & Climate

Manhattan and the surrounding area have four seasons of changeable weather. Summers are often hot and muggy and last until September. Temperatures usually soar to near 100 degrees F. for a week to ten days in mid-July to mid-August. Another uncomfortable time to visit New York City is during January and February when temps are often in the 20s and the concrete canyons of the city can turn into wind tunnels. Otherwise, the rest of the year the weather is comfortable, with March usually being the rainiest month. May offers great weather - just warm enough for walking around but cool enough to remain comfortable. Autumn has more sunshine than spring, although both are clear and bright. New York City is magical at Christmas time and the changing leaves of fall makes it a beautiful time to visit the area.
