Love your job. Love your life.
If you’ve never been to the Roxbury Motel in the Catskills, add this to your bucket list. Try the Mod-Pod room, or The Partridge Nest, or Tony’s Dancefloor, complete with a spinning disco ball. And these are just a few.
Also, remember your map, because cell service and GPS signals do not work in the Catskills. You’ll be hard pressed to remember your route if you’re relying solely on google. With dense wooded forests, you'll also be out of luck relying on sun direction and recognizable landmarks. Unless, you're up for the challenge.
We left New York city on a Friday with one talent, Olly, our shooter, and Aelana, our stylist. I was left to navigate and pre-clear properties, to ensure we were not shooting on private property, blocking traffic (for which we would need permits), and make sure we didn’t end up driving in circles for 2 days.
When we made it to the Roxbury, we spent 45 minutes running from room to room obsessing and geeking out about all the details of each room which make it unique and special. After a day in the car, and for Warren, a day spent running, it was exactly the change of scenery and excitement needed.
