Accommodations Buttermilk Falls, Milton

A Place in the country By Leah Habib

T

he choice of where to stay in the Hudson Valley can be a challenging one. With spring and summer in full bloom, why not take the eclectic route and enjoy the Great Outdoors? Choose luxurious accommodations nestled within beautiful acreage or close to a small, hip town. If your budget is tight, there are more economic lodgings on hand as well. Buttermilk Falls is a modern bed and breakfast is situated on 75 acres. Guests have the option to stay in one of ten curated rooms in the circa-1764 main house with river or garden views, or one of eight unique private cottages. The livestock barn at its Millstone Farm houses angora goats, miniature donkeys, and llamas, while a herd of rescued alpacas and a family of miniature donkeys also reside on the premises. The farm is the source behind produce found at the on-site restaurant, Henry’s at the Farm.

Garrison’s Terrace Grill 10

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

For a more traditional B&B, try Bricktown Inn, a brick Victorian in Haverstraw. Although the historic architectural beauty has been preserved—mahogany staircase, 10-and-1/2foot ceilings, and plaster moldings—modern amenities are included as well. The parlor is a great place to strike up a conversation with some of the other travelers, while the library has antique classic books for more personalized intellectual entertainment. Relax on the porch or in your personalized room, which showcases family heirlooms and antique tchotchkes. Golf fans will love the Garrison’s 18-hole course situated about 600 feet above the Hudson River with scenic views of the Hudson Highlands terrain as its background. After an afternoon on the course, relax in a luxurious room or wine and dine at the Valley, a delectable on-site restaurant with a daily changing menu. For a more casual, grab ’n’ go dining option, there is the Terrace Grill, which offers burgers, salads, and more. For a more affordable stay, try America’s Best Value Inn in New Paltz. Less expensive than the rustic majesty of the Mohonk Mountain House or some of the other more well-known accommodations and B&Bs in the New Paltz area, this hotel is a great base for the budget-friendly traveler. If you like the proximity to New York City but would prefer a slightly fancier inn, we’d suggest West Gate Inn, which is located in Nyack. Roughly 30 miles from the Big Apple, this hotel offers dancing and entertainment on Saturday nights. Guests can choose from a room with a kingssized bed or a standard room with two doubles.


All In One Place... Golf | World Class Cuisine | Special Events | Weddings | Inn ...With unforgettable golf, impeccable service, and memories that last, The Garrison offers an 18-hole, 72-par public golf course nestled in the Hudson Highlands. Located on the grounds, Valley Restaurant provides world-class cuisine and banquet facilities for weddings & special events.

food & drink

garden of eatin' By Leah Habib

Huckleberry, New Paltz

F

or food lovers, the Hudson Valley is a culinary paradise. With its growing food scene and bounty of local produce and delights, it’s hard to not find something for everyone. Here are some of our personal must-eats in towns across the Valley. New Paltz

Yes, this college town has more than just latenight pizza. There is a plethora of inexpensive ethnic options. If you fancy traditional Japanese delights, try Gomen Kudasai, which is known for its noodle bowls. Or maybe you’re in the mood for a pad thai over at Lemongrass? And it wouldn’t be a college town without some gastropubs. Garvan’s has classic pub entrees with a culinary twist: Enjoy gorgonzola sliders before your vegetable Napoleon. Huckleberry is another option for a cozy cocktail. If you prefer to look at the Gunks while you dine, try the Gilded Otter Brewery or the Parish. For a more upscale meal, check out Italian favorites like A Tavola or La Stazione. Or maybe you want gourmet to go from Main Course or the Cheese Plate for a nice picnic at Lake Minnewaska?

Hudson

Hudson has some inventive upscale options like Zak Pelaccio’s Fish & Game, or Crimson Sparrow, where WD-50 alum John McCarthy curates Asian-influenced plates. New American favorites can be enjoyed at Swoon—think baconwrapped dates or red-curried turnips. Or maybe a day of antiquing has you in need of a restorative— 16

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

try Wm. Farmer & Sons for a nosh and a craft cocktail. For some French-baked treats, try Café Le Perche. But don’t leave without scooping a loaf from Bonfiglio Bread.

Kingston

Part of the reason this city is now dubbed Brooklyn North is because of its expanding culinary scene. For an eclectic twist on classic Mexican, try Diego’s smoky beet taco, or for a more traditional flavor, the barbacoa, coffee and chili rubbed braised brisket. If it’s a particularly nice day and you’re in the mood for New-American contemporary dishes, walk up the block to Redwood and dine on the rooftop. You’ll find everything from burgers to duck Bolognese on their menu, plus a full bar. For more old-American/ Southern outdoor dining, check out Boitson’s—don’t miss their $10 Blue Plate Special on Mondays. Before leaving Uptown, stop into Elephant and enjoy wine and Spanish-inspired fare. If you venture down to the Rondout area of town, check out Ole Savannah and dine a-la-cart while gazing at the creek. For another take on classic Southern food, like a Catfish sandwich or fried green tomatoes, head over to Pakt in Midtown.

Craft Beverage

Bring on the

Hand-Crafted Beverages Are Booming in The Hudson Valley

T

By Peter Aaron

he Hudson Valley is quickly gaining a reputation as a destination for inspired, locally made craft beverages. From beer to bourbon, innovative producers are making a little bit of everything using time-honored, hand-crafted techniques and New York State ingredients. Our breweries, cideries, vintners, and distilleries are receiving awards across the country for their outstanding quality and attention to detail. With producers opening all the time, there’s always something new to try in the Hudson Valley. One of the best ways to taste the region’s terroir is by traversing the Shawangunk Wine Trail. Stretching over 80 miles, the trail includes a diverse group of 15 small-to-medium size wineries, all family owned and operated. Be sure to try the varietals that make Hudson Valley wine unique, like Seyval Blanc for a light white with a tart, minerally finish, or the local expression of Cabernet Franc, which balances bright candied apple with an earthy finish. Be sure not to miss Whitecliff Vineyards, opened almost 40 years ago in New Paltz. Whitecliff was named for the stunning beauty of the Shawangunk Ridge, visible from the deck outside the vineyards tasting room. Their award-winning Traminette reflects the region’s Alsace-like climate, drinking clean and crisp with just a hint of lychee-like sweetness. While the region has plenty of great wine, there are dozens of incredible distillers as well. In many ways, Gardiner’s Tuthiltown Distillery helped kicked off the craft beverage explosion in New York. Ralph Erenzo and his team helped amend legislation to become the first new whiskey distillery since Prohibition, opening their doors in 2005. Since then, they’ve been joined by some truly passionate operations. Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery and Dutch’s Spirits stand out as two visit-worthy destinations. Dutch’s Spirits’ storied history includes bootleggers and secret tunnels during Prohibition, and it takes its name from the mobster Dutch Schultz. The 20

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

three-story barn built on the original footprint of the bootlegging operation offers New York State farm products, a tasting room with over 75 stateproduced liquors, and Sugar Wash Moonshine, a hand-crafted tribute to Schultz’s liquor with notes of cut grass and butterscotch. Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery offers wine, cider, and spirits made with local ingredients you can sample from the patio overlooking the orchard. Their award-winning Doc’s Draft cider helped kick start cider production in the region. The original off-dry apple cider is now joined by raspberry, cherry, and even cassis. Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery isn’t the only great cidery in the region. They’ve recently been joined by acclaimed cider producer Angry Orchard, which began production in 2015 on a 60-acre orchard in Walden. Along with its more famous varieties, Angry Orchard is offering visitors specialty concoctions made on-site at the tasting room. Try the Old Fashioned for something truly decadent. It’s made with a blend of five different apples aged in oak with bourbon barrel staves, orange peel, and dried cherry. Not to be outdone, brewers in the area are making a name for themselves as well. In Livingston, Suarez Family Brewery is getting attention for subtle beers with laser-like attention to quality. Dan Suarez earned his pedigree at renowned breweries like Sixpoint and Hill Farmstead, and channels his experience into surprising offerings like Triangular Nature, a mixed-fermentation saison made with buckwheat. The tasting room draws visitors from across the Northeast who step into the clean, sun-drenched space to see what Suarez came up with. With the passion and creativity of the region’s producers, there’s no better place for craft beverages. Whether you prefer beer, wine, or whiskey, you’ll find a great one made right here in the Hudson Valley.

Shopping

till you

drop

By Leah Habib

Who doesn’t love to shop? With so many different towns, cities, and communities, the Hudson Valley has its fair share of cute boutiques filled with eclectic treasures waiting to be purchased. And, of course, there are malls and name-brand stores, too.

The Coop Arts & Antiques, Red Hook

A rainy day is the perfect excuse to head on over to the Palisades Center Mall. A two-story mall, it has all the big names and then some: H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Forever 21—a young woman’s dream! Athletes rejoice: There’s Dick’s Sporting Goods, Foot Locker, and even an ice rink. Get your glutton on at the food court. If you forget to get off the Thruway, a few miles north in Poughkeepsie you might visit the Poughkeepsie Galleria, the town’s premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination. Close by is the Poughkeepsie Plaza. With its huge Marshalls location, it’ll be hard to not find something to walk out with. Comic collectors and game enthusiast will love Dragon’s Den, which is home to tournaments and card-trading events as well as old-school video and hard-to-find board games. Maybe a purchase with some history behind it is in order. Annex Antiques Center in the village of Red Hook has 30-plus dealers and a variety of antiques, vintage, furniture, glassware, coins, jewelry, toys, collectibles, fine art, and more. The Coop Arts & Antiques is the perfect place to find a gift for just about anyone; a multifarious store offering antique and vintage home furnishings, lighting, antiquarian maps, unique gifts, jewelry, and stationery. Hudson is home to many antique vendors, but our recommendation is A Collector’s Eye, which is equal parts

gallery and store. Here, you’ll enjoy perusing through collectibles from the Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Jungstile, Scandinavian Modern, and Mid-Century Modern periods. Sugar Loaf Art & Craft Village is straight out of a story book. Over 20 unique shops fill this charming village, which is bordered by apple orchards and wineries and offers artistic delights like oil, water color, and acrylic paintings, stained glass, black and white and color photography, pottery, antiques, jewelry, woodworks, candles, soap, sculpture, and more. For second-hand clothes, check out My Sister’s Closet. Bliss Co-Op has hand-crafted cards, jewelry, and hair accessories created by its talented female members. Most stores are open on the weekends, so it’s worth making a day trip to hit them all. With all the walking you’ll be doing, you’ll certainly want some comfortable shoes. Pegasus Comfort Footwear has locations in Woodstock, Rhinebeck, and New Paltz. Besides offering name-brand shoes like Dansko, Klogs, Sanita, Birkenstock, and Spring Steps, Pegasus also has popular boot styles by makers like Dr. Martens and Blundstones. All three stores feature shoes for all genders, and the New Paltz location has a special kids’ outlet.

Art

By L e a h H a b ib

T

he Hudson Valley is known as an arts paradise. Whether they be visual, musical, or theatrical, the

arts flourish far and wide. With such a wide range of talent and versatility, it can be

hard to choose where to go. But don’t worry: Here are some of our must-hits.

In the Rondout area of Kingston lies the Art Society of Kingston (ASK). More than its being just a visual art gallery, painting classes, workshops, and life drawing lessons are offered here. With its sole mission being to benefit the artists, art-lovers, and general community, you never know what you might find going on within— and on—its walls. Over at SUNY New Paltz lives the Dorsky Museum of Art. While students exhibit their work here from time to time, established artists do as well. From June 10 to July 30 is “Undercurrents: The River as Metaphor / Hudson Valley Artists 2017,” a show centered around the theme of modernity and the Hudson River, will be exhibited. “Innovators and Activists: Celebrating Three Decades of New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships” fills the walls from August 30 until November 12. In Beacon lies another museum, Dia:Beacon. Known for its unique collection of paintings, photography, multimedia, sculpture, and works on paper from the 1960s onward, the museum, situated in an old Nabisco factory, is as architecturally interesting as it is artistically. Sculpture fans can revel in Opus 40, 28

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

Dia:Beacon

an awe-inspiring massive sculpture park in Saugerties. Created by one man, Harvey Fite, who worked on this masterpiece for 37 years, until a fall onto the quarry led to his death. Walking through, around, and over Opus 40’s 6.5 acres— from the deepest recesses (16 feet below ground) and up to the nine-ton monolith that is the center of the sculpture park—it’s hard to remember that the park is technically unfinished. For theatrical lovers, there’s Half Moon Theater, a year-round production company that puts on cabaret and mainstage performances at the Culinary Institute of America. Performance readings are held in the Studio Theater in Poughkeepsie. Shadowland Theater in Ellenville is another professional theater company. From June to October, it will put on six different performances, beginning with Michael Frayn’s “Noises Off.” The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival comes to Boscobel tent in Garrison, June 8 to September 4. This year’s lineup features performances of “Twelfth Night,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “The Book of Will,” “The General from America,” and “Love’s Labour’s Lost.” Tivoli’s international dance center, Kaatsbaan, hosts a variety of dance companies. Make note of their special Flamenco Vivo/Carlota Santana performance on May 13, which includes a full flamenco performance, wine and supper, Spanish music by classical guitarist David Temple, and a presentation of the Kaatsbaan Playing Field Award. Ballet Next, Michele Wiles’s experimental company, graces the stage on June 17 and June 18.

History

long time gone

The Hudson Valley has always been beautiful, this is no secret. For hundreds of years, people have been basking in its glory. The early inhabitants of our land and their successors have left behind some incredible historic sites. History and nature enthusiasts, here are some spots to excite your minds. Historic Huguenot Street Huguenot Street in New Paltz was first established in 1698 by a group of French Huguenot families. In 1894, their descendants formed what is today the community of Historic Huguenot Street to preserve their legacy. This 10-acre National Historic Landmark District includes a visitor center, seven historic stone houses, and a reconstructed 1717 Huguenot church. Rich in archaeological heritage, the site contains a burial ground that includes the graves of some of the original inhabitants. Hurley Reformed Church Hurley’s Main Street is a National Historic Landmark, with 10 stone houses, all 230-330 years old, within a quarter mile. Each second Saturday in July (this year: July 8), a handful of these private homes are opened to the public for the Hurley Stone House Tour. Other attractions on the tour include guides in Colonial attire, craft demonstrations, and a 1777 Ulster Militia Encampment. Locust Grove The independent, not-for-profit museum Locust Grove is located in Poughkeepsie. Set on 200-acres, Locust Grove features an Italianate villa dating to 1851. Designed for Morse code inventor Samuel F. B. Morse, the mansion is the work of architect A. J. Davis. Its carriage roads, views of the Hudson River, and manicured gardens make for a picturesque afternoon. Olana A tour of the 250-acre historic estate of Hudson River School artist Frederic Edwin Church will

Vanderbilt Mansion, Hyde Park 32

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

leave you inspired, to say the least. Located just outside the city of Hudson, the estate boasts a Persian-inspired mansion filled with original sketches, studies, and paintings by Church, while its landscape, also designed by Church, is perfectly intact. Staatsburgh State Historic Site This historic preserve was the country home of financier Ogden Mills and his wife, Ruth Livingston Mills. A prime representation of a Gilded Age estate, the house has been restored to its turn-ofthe-century splendor and is open for tours. FDR Estate/Presidential Library America’s only four-term president resided in Hyde Park on 300 acres of trails and gardens. Aside from a tour of the first Presidential Library, visitors can also take part in a guided tour of Springwood, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s beloved home. Visitors also have the option to take a two-hour tour of the Dutch Colonial-style Top Cottage, which was designed by FDR himself during World War II as a place to meet with other Allied representatives. Vanderbilt Mansion A monument to an earlier era, Vanderbilt Mansion is situated on 211 acres of parkland with 100-year-old tree plantings and Italian gardens. The estate was modeled on the grand, traditional concept of the English country house.


An unforgettable place in the heart of the Hudson Valley! Tour the mansion and art collection, hike on 180 acres of landscaped gardens, or enjoy special events and programs year-round. Also available for unique parties with up to 150 guests. 2683 South Rd (Rte 9), Poughkeepsie, NY 845-454-4500 www.lgny.org

Outdoors Skydive the Ranch, Gardiner. Photo by Laszlo Andacs.

a jolt of adrenaline By Leah Habib

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you’re a devoted adventure seeker or a simply enjoy being on the water, there’s some serious fun to be had in the Hudson Valley. For the thrill seekers, Skydive the Ranch offers skydiving in Gardiner. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,500 feet and hurtling toward the Earth at 9.8 m/s2 is unlike anything else you’ve ever tried. If you really like your heights a little more grounded, why not try ziplining at New York Zipline Adventures? The company offers a family-friendly mid-mountain tour, with the Catskill mountains as the backdrop. Its SkyRider tour is its most extreme attraction, lasting three hours and soaring 600 feet above the valley. If you want to gaze at the stars and follow the light of the moon as you glide along, consider the Night Zip tour. If you’ve got a group of eight, head over to the 60-foot Adventure Tower on the base of Hunter Mountain. This obstacle course forces guests to complete nine different stages to get to the top— providing both mental and physical stimulation. Summer also means water-related activities. Kayaking tours like Storm King Adventure Tours are a great way to spend the afternoon. 34

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

Start from the base at Cornwall-on-Hudson and work your way up the scenic Hudson on a threehour tour. Or maybe you want less of a work out and more of a leisurely water tour, like a boat tour on the Rip Van Winkle, which departs from and returns to Kingston? If you’re farther south, the Pride of the Hudson in Newburgh does tours and sightseeing cruises as well. There’s also the River Rose in Newburgh, which offers public and private cruises on an authentic New Orleans paddle wheeler. Of course, summer also means swimming. There are plenty of natural watering holes and state parks like Minnewaska, Bear Mountain, and Lake Taghkanic, which all have places to take a dip. But if you’ve got kids SplashDown Beach maybe just the place to go. An inviting water park with classic rides like the Croc Creek Way Lazy River, it also has more daring attractions like the Arctic Mammoth, a six-story, 600-foot-long water slide.


TOURS INCLUDE: Bannerman’s Castle, Moodna Marsh, Hidden Cove, Sunset Tours, Full Moon Tours, Private Tours, Corporate and Team-Building Events, and many more. All Equipment and Instruction included.

Entertainment

get down in the valley By Leah Habib

S

pring and summer concert series are some of the things the Hudson Valley does best. Festivals celebrating the other performing arts are a close second, though. And with many music venues to choose from, on many nights you can hear almost every genre. Whether you’re entertaining yourself or accompanying a special someone, you won’t be bored here in the Hudson Valley. Celebrated as the home of the iconic 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is a popular spot to catch new and old-time favorites. Lounge on lawn chairs while listening to Neil Diamond perform on the Pavillion stage June 22. Pop rock legends Rod Stewart and Cindi Lauper will share the stage on July 21. If you want to make it a day, explore the on-site museum and its new 2017 exhibit, “Love for Sale: The Commercialization of the Counterculture.” Every year, the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice hosts some of the finest opera, gospel, Broadway, and world music performances. The vocalist-oriented, three-day event runs from August 4 to 6. In Marlboro, check out the Falcon. All ages are welcome to enjoy dinner and live music. The Towne Crier in Beacon is similarly known for Americana, world music, and jazz and serves farm-fresh breakfast, brunch, dinner, and lunch. Every Monday and Wednesday is open mike

night. If you prefer a more intimate setting, try Daryl’s House in Pawling. Created by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Daryl Hall as a way to showcase great musicians and make guests feel at home, this venue does just that. If you like theater settings, try the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie or catch Todd Rundgren on May 13 at its sister venue, UPAC (Ulster Performing Arts Center) in Kingston. While you’re in Kingston, BSP Kingston, a multi-room venue with a vaudeville-era back-room theater, caters to the independent music scene. Real Estate plays the back-room stage on May 20. For classical and contemporary chamber music and jazz, catch one of the Maverick Concert Series’ programs, which are performed in a rustic, historic 1916 concert hall in the middle of the woods. Head over to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome to soak up some aviation history. This living museum features examples of airworthy aircraft of the pioneer era, World War I, and the golden age of aviation between the World Wars, plus roadworthy antique automobiles. Stay for one of their air shows. And nothing says summer like a night at a classic drive-in movie theater. Bring the kids (or don’t), stay for both showings, or just one. For current movies, the Hyde Park Drive-In is your go-to. Open rain or shine, you can see contemporary films in the comfort of your car for half the price of the movie theater. The Greenville Drive-In serves locally sourced snacks and focuses on popular classic and emerging films.

the catskills By Anne Pyburn Craig

From the Kingston Thruway exit, the Catskills beckon like a spectacular painting. Past the turn to Woodstock, Route 28 slims to two lanes and twists past a series of historical markers detailing the watery fates of towns vacated to make way for the Ashokan Reservoir. The level, paved trail around the reservoir makes a great warmup for the rest of the attractions in this vast, mixed-use state park and forest preserve. The Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper can help you craft an epic mountain weekend before you ever leave home—check out the interactive maps and downloadable audio tours available for free on the planning page of the center’s website. Places to stay range from the quaintest and quietest of tucked-away B&Bs like the Catskill Rose to modern-day Catskills classics like Graham & Co. and the Hotel Dylan; think country weekending reimagined by people who 40

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

adore creature comforts and abhor pretension. While you’re in Mt. Tremper, you might want to explore the unique world-within-a-world that is the Emerson Resort and Spa, named for Ralph Waldo Emerson. And be sure to check the calendar for events at the cutting-edge, low-keybut-fabulous Mt. Tremper Center for the Arts. Past Mt. Tremper you’ll find Phoenicia, an insouciant frontier town with a unique blend of mountain poignancy and multigenerational expat- Manhattan brash brilliance. Madly quirky, it features exquisite retailers and, for dining, a wonderful selection of everything from pub grub to New American, coffee, and craft cocktails. There are unique modes of exploration: Try the adventure of tubing on the Esopus Creek with Town Tinker Tube Rental or wheeling through six miles of back country on a low-friction rail bike. In summer, there are even opera performances at the Phoenicia International

Festival of the Voice (August 4-7). From Phoenicia you can venture all the way up into the highlands for the music festival at Belleayre or wander back down to Woodstock through the woods along Route 212, passing the Zen Mountain Monastery along the way. And once in Woodstock, you’ll find one of the most unique hiking opportunities in the Catskills: Overlook Mountain, which is complete with the ruins of an old hotel and a summit with insanely glorious views of the Hudson Valley. Stay on Route 212 and head east into Saugerties, where Catskills and the Hudson River meet. Here, you’ll find the friendly, chill-yet-opulent Diamond Mills complex bridging a show-stopping waterfall; come for a drink, a meal, or a weekend and explore the sweet, fanciful village packed with antiques, boutiques, art, fun, and food.

Newburgh By Anne Pyburn Craig

N

ewburgh’s Broadway is one of the widest grand boulevards in the nation. It sweeps majestically down to one of the prettiest bays on the Hudson River. You’re moments from one of the sites where George Washington lived while winning the Revolution and steps from the second-largest historic district in the state. Yet Newburgh’s emerging present signals that her best is yet to come; check out Newburghrestoration.com for the latest on the city’s broad and deep cultural scene. The Newburgh waterfront has reemerged as a culinary playground. Surf and turf? Ribs and funk? Zagat-rated decor and outdoor dining? Raw bar? Insanely original drinks? Dining out on the waterfront could fill a summer’s worth of weekend evenings with blissful pub crawling. But you’ll want to visit in the daytime, too, and get out on the water. Options range from a quick weekday ferry ride to sightseeing on an authentic paddle wheeler. Newburgh gastronomy sparkles with the culinary genius of one of the Hudson Valley’s most diverse communities, from the “cosmic American comfort food” of The Wherehouse to crepes at Ms. Fairfax; more French cuisine at the Liberty Street Bistro; shrimp and grits at Caffe Macchiato; Korean fare at Seoul Kitchen; the Caribbean at Calabash. And don’t

miss the fine craft beer at Newburgh Brewing Company. In addition to Washington’s Headquarters, with its 1880s Tower of Victory monument and two floors of museum exhibits, history buffs will enjoy the unique East End Historic District. Highlights include a Greek Revival “temple” and a veritable thesaurus of beautifully executed and fanciful structures, some lovingly restored, others in need of TLC and available to urban pioneers. Tour the Captain David Crawford House for an intimate peek at the life of a 19th-century shipping magnate in a posh, neoclassical mansion. Between the headquarters of the renowned Orange County Choppers franchise and the more than 500 bikes of all vintages and the Motorcyclepedia Museum, motorcycle lovers are in hog heaven in Newburgh. And a vibrant, enduring arts culture is exploding at venues around the city: the tiny, exquisitely curated Ann Street Gallery, the SUNY Orange Gallery, Space Create, and the Newburgh Dream Center are just a few art outlets not to be missed. The reawakening of this very culturally diverse city comes together in its annual Newburgh Illuminated festival on June 3, with five stages of music and performance in addition to dozens of vendors and a colossal art show.

RHINEBECK & RED HOOK By Anne Pyburn Craig

Downtown Rhinebeck

People visit the Rhinebeck area for a day, return to for a weekend, and then begin to fantasize about spending a month or a lifetime here. Access is easy via Amtrak, which drops you off five minutes from Rhinebeck’s center. You’ll find yourself in the heart of a region that blends laidback welcome with five-star everything. Most every weekend, you’ll find something going on at the nearby Dutchess County Fairgrounds. Check the fairgrounds calendar and choose between fine machinery, livestock, crafts, food, wine, and more. The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a living museum of aviation’s golden age; you can watch an airshow and take a biplane ride. At nearby Bard College, the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts showcases opera, ballet, theater, and film; in its seasonal Spiegeltent, there’s cabaret and jazz. A summer weekend could be happily spent wandering the villages of Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Tivoli sampling coffee shops, prowling boutiques and galleries, and dining on fine cuisine. Equis Art Gallery in Red Hook represents some of the finest contemporary equine artists. The Rhinebeck Antique Emporium is the largest venue of its kind in the Hudson Valley; the Rhinebeck Sunday Farmers’ Market is an opportunity to browse exotica like fresh pheasant, quail eggs, and fine smoked meats while enjoying live music and 44

chef’s demonstrations. Fine art, art supplies, gifts, jewelry, apparel, specialty kitchen equipment, and more stock the shelves of dozens of carefully curated and passionately well-run shops in the town. When it’s time to dine, the hard part is making up your mind. Top-notch sushi at Osaka, scratchmade Indian fare at Cinnamon, prime rib at Foster’s Coach House, dock-fresh seafood prepared with a European flair at Le Petit Bistro, and neo-Italian at Gigi’s Trattoria are but a few examples of the culinary choices here—where you’re smack in the middle of the Valley’s acclaimed farm-to-table revolution. There are also great treats to take home, like artisanal handcrafted chocolates from Oliver Kita and one-of-a-kind jewelry from around the world at Hummingbird Jewelers. Explore the outdoors with a hike through Ferncliff Forest or along the enchanted shores of neighboring Tivoli Bays. You’ll be immersed in history—the Village of Rhinebeck is full of quaint Dutch architecture and set within a unique historic district made up of riverfront estates. Take a tour of Wilderstein, a 19th-century Queen Anne Victorian with grounds done by renowned landscape architect Calvert Vaux and an interior filled with three generations’ worth of memorabilia.

Perched on its own little bay at the north end of Westchester County and the southern end of the Hudson Highlands, Peekskill is wellpositioned to partake of the best of downstate and the best of upstate; it’s where the utilitarian suburbs end and the artsy, character-driven and distinctive towns of the Hudson Valley begin. The Continental Army headquartered here, in what was already a bustling river town, before it moved to West Point. The view across the bay to Bear Mountain is incomparable. Towards the close of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, Peekskill made the wise and wonderful choice of emphasizing and encouraging the arts, claiming culture as 46

E X p lo r e t h e h u d s o n va l l e y. c o m

its primary economic engine and raison d’etre. A cooperative consisting of 28 live-work lofts helped bring about critical mass; an already thriving arts association and a landmark theatre meant that those artists—and many more—felt both welcomed and amused. The result, as you might expect, is a wonderful place to spend time. A little less than an hour on the Metro-North and you’re deposited steps from a waterfront crafted by Scenic Hudson, with a boardwalk, hiking trails and river access; Phase Two of the meticulously crafted waterfront plan, the Southern Waterfront Park and Trailway, opened in spring 2016 to rave reviews.

you’ll find an extensive digital visitor’s guide complete with map. Speaking of rave reviews, Paramount Hudson Valley keeps the town pumped full of juicy live entertainment, from standup comedy to nationally renowned music and dance. Built as state-of-the-art in 1930 right down to its giant Wurlitzer, the theater was rescued and refurbished. In a British pub frame of mind? Check out McDonald & Peacock Cider House for some Bubble and Squeak. The Irish get their due across the street at the Quiet Man Public House, serving Guinness and Irish Nachos. Or perhaps a latte at Peekskill Coffee House is more your speed. You’re unlikely to run out of new treats to try: Peekskill offers cuisines like Ecuadorian and Guatemalan along with Italian, Caribbean, Asian and offerings. There’s even a British-inspired tearoom, Kathleen’s. Ogle works from around the world at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, or get some magic to take home at galleries like the Flat Iron and the Driftwood. Find eclectic everything at the Peekskill Flea Market, and vintage at The Coop and Past and Present. Find books and music at the Bruised Apple, the Field Library Bookstore, and Latin Americanthemed Patricio Records
