"A thrift shopper's paradise"

Stormville is a small hamlet in the town of East Fishkill. It was named for brothers Jacob and Rupert Storm, who settled the area.

At one time Stormville was home to an airport, which has ceased operations. Today, it’s home to the Stormville Airport Antique Show and Flea Market, which runs several weekends a year. The market features over 600 vendors from eight states, and draws visitors from all over the region.

Most of the students who live in Stormville attend the Carmel School District, in neighboring Putnam County. Carmel has 4,600 students, and its state test results support its reputation as a high-performing school district. The Arlington Central School District, which covers over 100 square miles, also includes Stormville students among its population of 10,100. Significantly larger than Carmel, the district has eight elementary schools, three middle schools and one high school. Overall, most of the student population performs well on state exams, and 90% of its graduates go on to college.

Its inclusion in the town of East Fishkill allows Stormville’s residents to take advantage of the town’s recreation amenities, which include programs for people of all ages. The main facility, East Fishkill Recreation Park, has a roller rink and skateboard park. Red Wing Park has a beach. Adults have the option of joining men’s or women’s softball. There is also a roller hockey team, as well as other sports for adults and kids. During the summer, concerts are held on Friday evenings in the two parks. Stormville’s neighboring hamlet, Hopewell Junction, has both public and private golf courses.

Stormville’s homes are well-priced for middle-class buyers. The small size of the hamlet means inventory is limited.

"Pastoral and Peaceful!"

Stormville is a part of East Fishkill in the southern part of Dutchess County. The hamlet is considered small even among the other small communities in the area, but it does have a big claim to fame – a huge flea market! With 600 vendors and a website and Facebook page promoting the flea market, this is way more than a small town, local affair! For those interested, the next flea market of 2012 is June 30 – July 1st. Whether you like browsing for antiques or are looking for hand-crafted jewelry, it promises to be a fun experience at Stormville.

Other than this very unusual fact, Stormville is a typical Hudson Valley small town in that it offers a naturally beautiful setting for a quiet life style. Hopewell Junction and East Fishkill at large offer dining and shopping options and there is also Wappinger Falls with a slew of stores. But Stormville is really quiet and best suited for those who are not looking for a hopping bar scene or a vibrant downtown.

Stormville students may end up going to Arlington, Carmel, Pawling or Wappingers public schools depending on the street address. All of them have fairly good reputations although there is the occasional criticism of some large class sizes. East Fishkill offers excellent park and recreation programs which can be very attractive to parents looking for organized sports programs. Their soccer tournament during the Memorial Day weekend is well attended from teams across the region.

You may hear that the Green Haven correctional facility, a maximum security prison, is in Stormville. While it does have a Stormville address, it is officially in Beekman.

If all these facts create a hodge-podge image of Stormville, the one picture really worth keeping in mind is of verdant meadows and expansive uncluttered landscape.

"Home to One of the World's Greatest, Oldest Flea Markets in NY State!"

Don’t go by its name, because Stormville, NY is actually a very pleasant area. In fact, Stormville is quite a unique town in Dutchess County as it has its very own airport named after itself, as well as the humungous Airport Antique and Art Show, where more than 600 vendors come from all over (more than 8 different states). People come from all over to visit the flea market as well and seek out treasures of all different kinds (there’s never knowing what you’ll find at this flea market, like most of its kind---it’s the world’s best garage sale on a very large scale). There’s free admission as well as free parking (please no pets).

Stormville, of Dutchess County, is however much more than the flea market. It’s home to IBM Microelectronics, one of the company’s largest centers. It’s also home to Stormville Mountain. The name was taken from two Dutch settlers, Rupert and Jacob Storm. Stormville is very affordable and you have Stormville Airport and the nearest city is Poughkeepsie, home to the historic Bardavon Opera House (where great concerts and plays are held all year round) and the Poughkeepsie Train Station. There’s also lots of unique shops like Wren’s Grove Metaphysical, an awareness shop that sells unique spiritual items. There’s also Mountaintop Market Deli which makes homemade food, the Pastry Garden Bakery & Gourmet, two yarn shops: Out of the Loop and Quilt Basket, and the Clove Branch Gift Shop, where you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift. The Carvel Corporation of Carvel ice cream and ice cream cake fame also makes its home here.

Stormville is a great place both to visit and to live. It’s a lot cheaper than the rest of Fishkill (Stormville’s median sales rate is $309,930 and East Fishkill proper is $499,000). Wappinger School District serves students from Stormville, housing 12,481 students, as well as dedicated special educations and ELL programs. You’re also near historic landmarks like Locust Grove, once home to Samuel Morse, creator of the Morse Code in nearby Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie also has great medical facilities like St. Francis and Vassar Brothers. There’s great nearby colleges as well like Marist College and Vassar, Dutchess Community and Hudson Valley. There’s many more to discover in surrounding towns and cities. Enjoy!
