I'm not exactly new to the Hudson Valley anymore but I discovered this issue recently and something needs to change.

Honestly, I haven't spent a whole lot of time on the other side of the bridge. Last week I had to make a trip to downtown New Paltz. I hopped on 87 from Newburgh. I think I may have only been to New Paltz like three times so I wasn't familiar with the area. Like an idiot I missed the exit.

"I'll get off at the next one." I thought to myself.

To my surprise, the next exit was 15 miles away in Kingston! Seriously

Can we break this up a bit? Instead of putting all of our efforts into banning vape flavors, milk and shampoo, why doesn't New York put all of that energy towards something useful? I can't be the only one who had to drive a half-hour out of the way because of this mistake.
