The Birches at Esopus

Dear Resident

Dear Resident of The Birches at Esopus,

Welcome! We are pleased that you have chosen The Birches at Esopus as your new home and we are glad that you are here.

By now you have received your “house number” and “unit number” on Dick Williams Lane, Ulster Park, NY 12487. Some GPS services may not recognize Dick Williams Lane, in which case you can direct friends, family or deliveries to Sorbello Lane (the former name of the road). If you are going to have Verizon as your telephone provider, you may find that they have your apartment listed under Port Ewen, NY. This confusion over Ulster Park or Port Ewen does come up from time to time. By the way, the phone number for Verizon is 845-890-1700.

Please contact Central Hudson Electric & Gas at 845-452-2700 to have the power transferred over into your name as soon as possible. When setting up your account, please write down your account number and provide this information to the office.

Included in the package you receive when you moved in is general information to help orient you to your new home and surroundings. We have put this information on the internet as well for your future reference. Our general website address is but you may go directly to your community website at

If you have any questions or if any maintenance issues come up, please contact us at 845-338-6173. In the event that you do have a maintenance emergency after normal business hours, you may contact Mike & Leslie Tierney, our resident care takers, at 845-901-6861. Should you reach voice mail, please let us know that you are calling from The Birches at Esopus  and provide your unit number and your telephone number as well as the nature of your emergency, so someone can get back to you as quickly as possible.

Again, we welcome you to your new home and hope you enjoy living at The Birches at Esopus.
