Walkway over the hudson State Park and Poughkeepsie in General Nov 25, 2011
Walkway over the Hudson is a relatively new State Park. It is a 1.5 mile former railway bridge high above the Hudson River. While I list the price as free there are parking lots that charge $5 to park in them. I'd skip those if driving. If visiting NYC for an extended period of time then traveling up the river on Metro North is worth the trip. The trip up the river on Metro North is relatively cheap. Make sure to sit on the left side of the train leaving Grand Central for the very best views of the Hudson River. For those wishing to travel in a bit more style Amtrak also travels to Poughkeepsie, Albeit at a higher cost. Once in Poughkeepsie it is possible to walk to the walkway over the Hudson. Samual Morse estates, and the Vanderbilt estates both have house tours that offer a glimpse of life in the victorian error in the united states. A short Hike in conjunction with your Walk over the Walkway is possible at Fanny Resse state park. The Soul Dog on Main St. provides an inexpensive and unique place to have lunch. Mahoney's Pub at the train station plaza is one of the local hot spots for night life. For an upscale lunch with River views the River station provides a nice meal as does shadows, both an easy walk from the train station. All except the estates are walking distance from the train station and the trip itself up the Hudson river is wonderful. Should you have any interest in Poughkeepsie I'd be happy to share
