Preoccupation: staring, dreaming, cooking and worrying

A little known fact about Pine Plains? It used to have the biggest railroad exchange on the east coast, all the milk for new york… and some came from this area. All that milk had to go out immediately by train but when refrigeration was invented it shut it all down.
