"Luxton Lake is a private community within the hamlet of Narrowsburg that has a rich history as a vacation area for New York City residents, going back to the early 20th Century
... In the early 1950s, the community was subdivided and marketed as an African-American vacation community, drawing families from Harlem, Queens, and the Bronx.
... In the early 1980s, the century-old stone dam began to show signs of wear and abuse, after logging trucks used it as a roadway while removing timber from the undeveloped side of the lake. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ordered that the dam be repaired or destroyed, citing risk of flooding to homes downstream along the Ten Mile River. Due to lack of time, and lack of money, the dam was demolished in the spring of 1983.
... However, the 21st century has brought a modest revival to the area. Some cabins have been purchased and repaired, some demolished and removed to create greenspace"
... Good Bye Tara. And hello again!
