STUDY SHOWS: Outdoor Recreation on Catskill Lands Brings 2.5 Million People, Thousands of Jobs, and $115 million – The Catskills’ publicly
owned state and New York City lands plus private lands open to the public, draw over 1.7 million visitors annually. They create an economic impact of $46,207,000 and support 980 jobs. Add those who come to enjoy other privately held lands, and the total number of people choosing the Catskills for recreation each year is almost 2.5 million, creating an economic impact of $114,768,000 and supporting 2,413 jobs. So states a new report, “Economic Valuation Study for Public Lands in the Central Catskills” prepared by Brian Zweig of Business Opportunities Management Consulting.
