Legendary Rip Van Winkle The story of Rip Van Winkle is a significant part of Greene County’s cultural legacy. The famous short story takes place in the Catskills, set in pre-Revolutionary New York. The story goes that Rip wanders into the mountains one day to escape the nagging of his wife, and discovers a host of men playing nine pins and drinking a “magic potion.” Rip enjoys a nip and soon falls into a deep slumber. When he wakes, his beard is grown long and his rifle is rusty. He soon finds that he has slept for 20 years, long enough to miss the Revolutionary War and his children growing into men and women. Rip’s tale is commemorated throughout the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County including:
