Since 2012, New Paltz-based Glenn’s Sheds has been designing and building open-air firewood sheds for homeowners in the mid-Hudson Valley. Today, Glenn’s Sheds offers over 50 styles and sizes of firewood sheds, all designed by owner Glenn Nystrup and assembled on site by his team.

Underwriters believe in our mission to bring in-depth reporting and analysis to the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Strung between Albany and New York City, this region—whose news infrastructure has been decimated by the impact of venture capital ownership, digital platforms, and now a global pandemic—deserves and requires reliable and trustworthy news.

Underwriting helps makes this possible. This one-of-a-kind opportunity for local businesses and organizations to support independent journalism aligns your brand with the value of providing relevant and reliable local news to the Hudson Valley and Catskills community. Supporting The River demonstrates your support for independent journalism in our region—and our readers will take notice.
