At the center of historic Springs in a prime location is the iconic and faithfully preserved Springs General Store. This 1.3 acre harborfront property includes an approximately 2,520 square foot building with a deli/retail store on the first floor and a second floor apartment, detached two car garage, and more. The Springs General Store has always been at the heart of Springs, a perpetual gathering place for locals and visitors alike. If you haven't already, stop by for a delicious egg sandwich, grab an Adirondack chair on the sunny front porch, or listen to local musicians on Sunday afternoons. Located just down the road from the Pollack-Krasner house, the General Store was frequented by Jackson Pollack who once settled his grocery bill with a painting. Ferris Talmage put it best in his book (published 1970) The Springs, In The Old Days "here, for generations, national history and local gossip have been discussed and debated. As far back as I can remember, it was a common meeting-ground for all of Springs' local characters". Built in 1844 as a post-office and general store, the Springs General Store remains in the center of Springs and a "meeting ground" today. Currently leased, this is a rare opportunity to own a unique waterfront property with a fabled history.
