Get around

Best to park or take the train here and walk around the waterfront and historic downtown on foot. You can also travel very quickly to or through town on Broadway, the same Broadway that goes all the way to the southern tip of Manhattan.


The village offers gorgeous views of the Hudson River from various viewpoints downtown and up in the hills, including the edge of the New Jersey Palisades. The waterfront is a wide expanse of grass, barbeque pits and a playground for relaxing and enjoying the sun. You can see the tall skyscrapers of Manhattan from the water's edge. There are lots of cute shops downtown for window shopping or actual purchasing. Walk the Croton Aqueduct trail for spying on gorgeous homes and estates of all times and architecture.
