The Observer and the REVIEW&EXPRESS, are two long-standing, national award-winning weekly publications that are designated as “official” papers for Yates County and Schuyler County.
The newspapers are located in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine region with many of our communities located along Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake.
The Observer is based in Dundee, New York and has published continuously since 1878. Our readership area consists of the three-county area of Yates, Schuyler and Steuben. The Observer also covers the three school districts including Penn Yan, Dundee and Hammondsport.
The REVIEW&EXPRESS is published from Watkins Glen, New York. Schuyler County is our area of focus and the popular weekly has been published since 1854.
The REVIEW&EXPRESS has covered the exciting birth of road racing in Watkins Glen and the growth of the Finger Lakes wine industry. The REVIEW&EXPRESS is the "official" newspaper for Schuyler County and also for the Watkins Glen and Odessa-Montour school district.
