The real Platt Hollow Road is a small rural road in the Catskill Mountains just off Route 7 in Maryland, N.Y. Exactly one mile up that road, at the top of a hill, sits an old farmhouse with a pair of chicken coops (the barn fell down in 1986.) It was owned by Arthur Von Berg, who married my grandmother late in life and moved her up from the city in the early 1940's. My father and mother first visited them in 1946, when it took seven hours to drive there from Jersey City.
Since then, and continuing today, the house has played host to hundreds of family members and friends, where all visitors become part of our family for as long as they stay.
