Carl’s Contact Information

Map with Poughkeepsie location in NY StateI live in Poughkeepsie NY in the scenic Hudson River Valley.

Poughkeepsie is on the Hudson River roughly 2 hours north of New York City by train or car.

Note: I actually live south east of the “City of Poughkeepsie“, in the hamlet of “Red Oaks Mills” in the “Town Of Poughkeepsie“. My snail mail post office is the Arlington branch (zip code 12603) of the Poughkeepsie post office.

I do not have a government tracking device (cell phone, smart phone, etc). If I had one, it would be in a draw with a dead battery. If you call my land line phone then leave a message. I NEVER answer the phone. Sending email is your best bet!
