--Yes--Woodstock is a town in Ulster County, New York, United States. The population was 6,241 at the 2000 census.
The Town of Woodstock is in the northern part of the county. Woodstock is northwest of Kingston, New York and lies within the borders of Catskill Park. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodstock,_New_York Famous Inhabitants
The town has long been a mecca for artists, musicians, and writers, even before the music festival made the name "Woodstock" famous. The town has a separate "Artist's Cemetery". Film and art festivals attract big names, and hundreds of musicians have come to Woodstock to record. The list below contains the names of significant artists who actually lived (or still currently live) in the town.

I think it is, although I thought that that was the name of the field where the rock festival took place. Something to think about as the 40th anniversary is around the corner.
