"Accessible from Manhattan in as little as an hour by car or Metro-North railroad, the Hudson Valley is the closest getaway that allows one to feel truly removed from the quotidian routine of city life. This year, the unseasonably warm weather means outdoor destinations like the Storm King Art Center sculpture park and the Walkway Over the Hudson, the longest footbridge in the world, are accessible well into the prime months of fall foliage."
This event kicks off the holiday season in Poughkeepsie as thousands of people attend.
The parade will commence at 6:30 pm on Main Street and Garden Street and proceed to the evening’s first Christmas tree lighting on Main, near Market Street."
"If you live in the Hudson Valley and are on any sort of social media, I think it’s safe to say that your news feed has been taken over by an overwhelming amount of pictures of the fall foliage. While these posts may seem repetitive and overdone, I say bring them on!
When you’re lucky enough to live in the Hudson Valley during the fall, then celebrating the area’s beauty only seems right. While the Hudson Valley attracts so many during all of the beautiful seasons, there is something about the fall months that makes this area so special to visit. Living here my whole life, it is easy to take these beautiful months for granted. But it is during these months that I truly realize how amazingly wonderful the Hudson Valley is and how lucky we are to live here. Maybe it’s because of the breathtaking fall foliage surrounding your daily commute on the Taconic. Or that we are able to spend our weekends apple picking, pumpkin carving and wine tasting at some of New York’s best wineries. Or because we are able to consume more apple cider donuts than anyone would like to admit. But I think what truly makes the Hudson Valley the best is its beauty, especially during the fall months."
"The final edition of the Poughkeepsie Journal Patio Sessions features Rich Hines & the Hillbilly Drifters performing “The Walkway Song.”
Due to the weather, the Poughkeepsie Journal Patio Sessions will be on hiatus until the spring.
For today, though, you can enjoy this song about a Hudson Valley landmark, Walkway Over the Hudson. The former railroad bridge served as an artery of commerce in the northeast before catching fire decades ago. It has been resurrected as a state park and offers sweeping views of the region, while offering an opportunity to exercise."
Michael Dupree and Michael Fleischer—Walkway members, donors, and stewards—are contributors in more ways than one, and are vital to the Walkway organization. Champions of the Hudson Valley, the "Michaels" are local philanthropists and active in many preservation organizations. We have been incredibly fortunate to work with them over the years, each lending their talents and skills to the organization. Fleischer sits on the Walkway Board of Directors and Dupree serves on the Starry Starry Night event committee as Co-Chair, both assisting with raising crucial funds for capital improvements and innovative programming for Walkway State Historic Park. We are grateful for their continued support and involvement with our organization, and look forward to accomplishing more important initiatives with their guidance.
