Bigfoot
 sightings are common in the Hudson Valley, but belief can be elusive. Artist Ron English moved to Beacon, New York, in 2008, into a house with a spectacular view of the Hudson river and a backward forest teeming with deer, raccoons and an occasional large furry humanoid who eluded direct contact but seemed to commune with nature’s other creatures. Over the years in Beacon, as gentrification crept into the woods and replaced paradise with parking lots, Bigfoot sightings have become more and more rare. But the question remains: Is there an intelligent creature lurking in the woods among us? If you believe, does it have to be true?
