About the Area:
The parcels are located in
the hilly portion of the sprawling river and hill town of New Baltimore
surrounded by farms and rolling fields. The closest post office is Coeymans
Hollow, hence the address. The nearest town for shopping is Coxsackie, a short
drive down the hills and incidentally the site of the oldest Dutch house in
America and the Bronck Museum and Vedder Library which preserve extensive
records of early Dutch life in the Hudson Valley.
New Baltimore has a center - The hamlet – which is also close by and perches on an escarpment overlooking the Hudson. It has fine examples of Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Victorian architecture built between 250 and 150 years ago. There is a lively conservancy group which sponsors paddle trips on the river, maintains two nature preserves and trails and hosts a number of seasonal parties. The hamlet also has a marina with its own restaurant and there is a town park at the river’s edge with access to the river for paddlers and small sailboats. There are trails for hiking or horseback riding.
Twenty minutes south is the town of Catskill, the Greene County seat and a burgeoning art center with a revitalized main street lined with interesting shops and restaurants. It is also the site of Cedar Grove, a National Historic Site and the home of Thomas Cole, the founder of the Hudson River School of Painting. Cedar Grove hosts numerous speakers and events over the year
Hudson is across the river from Catskill over the Rip Van Winkle bridge where you can visit Frederic Church’s castle and home, Olana. There are also art galleries and antique shops and more restaurants. The Amtrak station for travel to and from New York City is in Hudson.
The Albany County International Airport is 1/2 hour to the North. The NYS Thruway and Mass Pike, are close by making traveling to Albany, NYC, or Boston easy.
