Tony grew up in Warrensburg but finished high school in Brooklyn, having studying with Beat poet Gregory Corso on an island in the Aegean and crewing on a schooner in Hawaii. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College, he traveled through Greece and Turkey studying Byzantine art and archaeology and then returned to New York, where he worked at Lehman Brothers before beginning another attempt at an education, this time in government and political philosophy at Harvard and the University of Toronto. Determined to live in the Adirondacks, he took a job as an aide to legendary state senator Ron Stafford. In 1998, he and his wife Lisa acquired the Lake George Mirror, which was once owned by his father, Rob Hall. Tony and Lisa Hall live in Bolton Landing.
