It was a beautiful walk over the Hudson and the music stops were terrific. We ended up at the river with a picnic lunch. Very safe, very affordable.

If you are in the area, you must stop here and experience the view. We walked across from the West side of the river, on an unseasonably warm and sunny day. If we had more time, we would have explored the East side of the...More
