If a New Paltz resident wanted to show where he or she lives to someone who doesn’t speak a common language, the simplest method would be to draw a dog-legged horizontal line to represent the Sky Top cliff and add a little rectangle on top for the Albert K. Smiley Memorial Tower. It’s so iconic a profile against the sky that when an exhibitor at a local crafts fair was selling a quilt depicting what the Shawangunk ridgeline must have looked like before European settlement, she had to name the piece Where’s the Tower? because that was the first thing that came out of the mouths of everyone who looked at it.
