Just a minute off the Palisades Interstate Parkway. Beautiful views of the Hudson River and New York. In spring and fall migration seasons, you will see many raptors migrating along the river.

So we stopped at this site after a stay in a local hotel. The views are as to be expected but there is nothing else to really do or see in the area. There is a small cafe with a gift shop that was crowded...More
