— Klingler, who’s already decorated the town’s website with his scenic photos, said he’s happy to promote Warrensburg and help many other people recognize that a lot of beautiful local scenes exist.

“There are a lot of ‘hidden treasures’ here in Warrensburg,” he said.

Teresa Whalen of Warrensburgh Beautification praised Klingler for his work to promote the beauty of Warrensburg.

“It’s a great idea that’s he’s capturing the current landscape, including the restored buildings and our improving streetscape,” she said, noting that the last time she saw Warrensburg postcards on sale was when a rack of yellowed cards stood in L.D.’s Drug Store many years ago. “Greg’s new photos are beautiful.”

Warrensburg Supervisor said he’s heard a request that Klingler’s post cards be offered for sale at the town hall, an idea that would have to be approved by the town board, he added.

“Greg is doing a wonderful job in capturing lovely scenes around town,” he said, noting the cards would make welcome gifts for people who have moved away. “His post cards will be a wonderful addition to Warrensburg — and hopefully people will respond and and purchase them.”
