Bethel, New York, is a small town and farming community in Sullivan County, with a population of 4,255 ( 2010 census). Many small hamlets and lakes surround Bethel and include Kauneonga Lake, Smallwood, White Lake and parts of Mongaup Valley and Swan Lake. This was all once a very popular vacation area from the 1930's to the 1970's, which was then known as the Borscht Belt, a colloquial term for the many summer resorts in the Catskill Mountains. Bethel is know world-wide as the site of the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, held there in 1969, that drew more than 500,000 people for "Three Days of Peace and Music". Today, a few resorts remain in the region, and there are many summer homes of families from the New York City area.
