Thanks for concurring. But, gotta tell you, I bought a really adorable house in New Hope in the early 1990’s for 139K. It was an small old very cute one bedroom colonial renovated by an architect. I had it nicely lanscaped, put a nice deck out back near the creek, etc. etc. I but it on the market 10 years later where it sat and sat and sat and eventually sold for 139K. Two years ago my real estate agent called me to say it was again on the market for 425K!!!
That’s not too tacky!!
What was good about New Hope was that it was just into the beginning of Pennsylvania, only 60 miles from NYC and you could drive all over for great food: Philly, Delaware, Baltimore, Lancaster and Amish areas, Northern Cheasapeake Bay. Had great seafood, fesh farmer’s satnds and PA Dutch food by just driving an hour or so.
I agree with NYNM. I began eating in New Hope with my parents, back in the mid-’60s. Unfortunately, in the last couple of decades it has progressively devolved into a mostly tourist-tacky destination, and as a result those who want genuinely good restaurant food usually go across the bridge to Lambertville, NJ where there are many choices for good food at mostly lower prices than in New Hope.
I used to own a home there, on Mechanic Street. We liked Martine’s a cute tiny place off Main Street. Karla’s was Ok. "Upscale" is La Bonne Auberge op the hill off Mechanic (Village II) but over in Lambertville or North up Rt. 32 is much better.
New Hope became way too tacky-tourist.
i’ve always enjoyed the cock’bull in nearby Lahaska
