Yet, long-time residents and their children in this suburb of New York City use _downstreet_ for the business section of Cold Spring. We are located in the Hudson Highlands (right across the river from West Point)--a mountainous region. There is no evidence recorded on the DARE map (Vol. 2, p. 168) for the lower Hudson Valley. Is this a relic of some sort or a attribute of some speech island? David K. Barnhart Barnhart[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
