Hudson River Valley Photos

I live in the upper Hudson River Valley and take too many photos of the local scenery, historical sites, and wild life. Here is a sample.

Coxsackie NY

Coxsackie NY is well worth a visit if you're interested in exploring an extremely well-preserved 19th century Hudson River Town. It's a place with a long history as well as great beauty, both in and around the town.

After the collapse of the river-related industries, Coxsackie's downtown was almost in danger of becoming a ruin. Now, with its beautiful riverfront park, and the appearance of a few shops and restaurants, it is showing some signs of revitalization.

But with luck, wholesale gentrification will never come, and the town can retain its quiet rural character for future generations.

For more photos taken during my year as a resident of the town, see Coxsackie NY.
