Walkway attracts outside visitors

We have a unique area we live in that draws visitors from other areas to ours. Our Walkway is unique in that the Walkways nonprofit organization says it is known to be the longest pedestrian bridge in the world.

If you don't live here and have not walked the bridge, you are missing out on the fantastic views of the beautiful Hudson River from the Walkways vantage point. So come join us in Dutchess County for a truly unique experience.
