Middletown: for the Discerning Resident
Think back to 1744 if you will. An unknown number of settlers are occupying a tract of green and agriculturally rich land about an hour and a half north of New York City. Of course that's an hour and a half by car, so a day and a half north by foot. Anyway, they've called this little settlement of theirs "Middletown," but due to some confusion over a nearby town with a similar name, they soon decide to call it "South Middletown," only to change it back to “Middletown” again a short time later. Jeesh, talk about much ado about nothing.
Now let’s move up to 1785, where you’ll find the descendants of those 1744 residents (and maybe some of the original group too, albeit in their golden years). The townspeople are hard at work constructing the First Congregational Church of Middletown. To some, this marked the settlement's official birth as a "village." Moving forward into the industrialized future (their future, our past), Middletown began manufacturing shoes, lawnmower blades, and furniture. Without these industries, Middletown might have been nothing more than a pit stop on the way to Canada.
Today, Middletown is a sprawling suburban city. There are two shopping malls on the edge of town, which have, unfortunately, sucked some of the life out of the downtown shopping district. Though it’s a fairly run-of-the-mill suburb, it’s still a great place to call home.
Middletown Fun (and Then Some)
If you’re looking for something fun to do, there are a number of activities offered by the city's Recreation and Parks Department. There are performing arts programs for both children and adults, including theater, dance, and "Little Actors Dance and Drama." (Because toddlers are just so much cuter on stage!)
There’s also the Tutubi Art Gallery (for any aficionados of acrylic out there). Here, you'll find contemporary art, metal reliefs, and a legion of original paintings. Viewing with the naked eye is encouraged, but viewing naked is prohibited. Just so that you know.
And finally, make sure to enjoy at least one of Middletown's 13 parks, no matter if it’s Jerry's Park (it sounds private, but it's public), Linden Avenue Park, or Wallace Park. To get an idea of what to expect, apart from swimming, basketball, soccer and the like, click here.
With so many things to do in town, we’re surprised that you haven’t started packing your bags already. So what are you waiting for? Get a move on!
