Woodbourne is a hamlet in the town of Fallsburg in Sullivan County, New York, United States. Woodbourne is bordered by the town of Neversink, the hamlet of Grahamsville, the hamlet of Loch Sheldrake, the hamlet of Old Falls, and the hamlet of Hasbrouck. The major thoroughfares of Woodbourne are New York State Routes 42 and 52. The center of the hamlet is where the two highways briefly overlap and cross the Neversink River. Woodbourne is in the Catskills Borscht Belt and in its heyday was home to many summer hotels, bungalow colonies and boarding houses, which are mainly uninhabited throughout most of the calendar year. To this day, the population of Woodbourne and nearby areas increases dramatically each summer with an influx of Orthodox Jewish residents from New York City, New Jersey, and other surrounding Jewish population centers. With this, the local economy expands in the warmer months as locally-owned small businesses thrive until approximately Labor Day Weekend, marking the typical end of summer. Currently Woodbourne is the site of the Woodbourne Correctional Facility.
