Hunter, NY is a Beta test city. It has been mapped manually by the Vaad Ltechumin using the Chazon Ish Shiurim.  see picture below. who is not affiliated with the Vaad L'techumim mapped it using the shuirim of R' Moshe through ARCGIS.  

Here are the .com results for each area.

  • The small boxed in colored areas enclosed by a solid line, are each a separate city with their own Ribuos.  The area outside broken lines with the same color is the Techum boundary squaring it in (4 boxes shaded).
  • The city is split from the Main Bridge (ski area) to the east and west along the main road.  This is because there is an area greater than 70+70 amos between the 2 sides of the city.  We attempted many ways to connect the two sides, but couldn't find a method.  This area can be viewed on any map - from the funeral home to the gas station on its right.
  • We found the areas south and west of the city, Hunter Inn and Scribner Lodge are outside the main city Techum. Their respective Techumim are not large enough to reach the Shul.    
  • The area of Liftside (PINK) has a shaaleh of being in the main city Techum or its own. As such those staying there could make a shvisa in Shul to solve all problems without a bracha, or use its own Techum.
    The Highland Area Units (PURPLE)-  You can reach Shul and the Rav's house within your own Techum. PLEASE print out the map and become familiar where your Techum ends on Main street and the areas to the east for your Shabbos shpraztirs. OR make a shvisa in Shul before Shabbos
    -see instructions below.  Then the main city Techum will more than cover you. This is recommended by the writer.      


Hunter- The City  

Hunter Mountain INN     DOES NOT REACH SHUL  - make a shvisa

Scribner  Lodge            DOES NOT REACH SHUL   - make a shvisa

MId City btwn the Bridge and Scribner we call Kalsa   -   - IS FINE

HIghland Rentals    - REACHES SHUL, But has limitations - see map

Liftside Rentals      - IS FINE, but probably should make a shvisa- see comments above

See Page 2 for halachos in a Rush to make

your own Shvisa in Shul. Or A communal Techum can be prepared see R' Harris.

Each map can be zoomed in for specific street locations.

In the interim visit this link for a recent map of 3 colonies in Monticello.   

SOUTH SIDE - PITTALUGA ROAD IS TOO FAR -  According to R’ Moshe – 430 FEET BEFORE PITTALUGA ROAD.  Walking up the hill, look on your left and after the Telephone Pole with an orange sign and 2 white Telephone/cable boxes follow the fence till the next driveway with a rope blocking it, just after telephone pole #52.    Chazon Ish – 102 FEET BEFORE PITTALUGA ROAD. At abandoned brown house, or look for the backyard of the first house Pittaluga Road.

EAST SIDE -  R Moshe 555 feet from Lytle Road   Chazon Ish - 243 feet from Lytle Road 

WEST SIDE - R' Moshe approx 350 feet from Harris Road at Harris Road/second house from the corner,  Chazon Ish 60 feet from Harris Rd & Harris Rd

Improve your crop of Shabbos- understanding how far you can walk is part of Yahadus.  

We at are embarking on another dimension to mapping the Techum. We believe there is enough technology to use the USGS maps, google street view and city municipal maps for 'almost automated Techum calculations.'  Of course, human review will be necessary by a qualified trained person.   Our vision is to allow anyone to input an address and a map will be generated.  The technology allows specific programming according the Techum rules to calculate.  We are exploring some of these programs. If you have good comprehension skills & are comfortable using a computer, then this could be a great project for you.   If you would like to participate please contact us. 

Techum Shabbos note:

Boundary addresses are not exact, but recognizable identifiable locations.
