I love crossing this suspension bridge on the way to points North. The view of the river and valley is gorgeous.

We have not been in the area long enough to make it over here but it looks very pretty in the photos I've seen. At the very least, it's close enough to make for a good evening or morning dog-walk.

Get on a bike path here that runs all the way to Tappan -- 4 miles or so. On a bluff, through the woods, it's the path of a turn-of-the-century railroad. You'll pass the old station house in Piermont

The Indian Point nuclear energy complex sits on the banks of the Hudson and is visible (look for the twin cooling towers) when you approach the Hudson River from my house and as you drive up Route 9W which hugs the Hudson River. I don't know if they schedule tours but it would certainly be a fascinating tour if they do. Indian Point currently supplies about 25% of New York City's electricity. That's a lot of electricity...

9W is the big main drag passing through Stony Point. Driving south takes you to a very dense area of restaurants, stores and services of every kind (laundromats, auto repair shops, manicurists.) Driving north is much more scenic and eventually takes you to the area around Bear Mountain State Park.

People come here from all over the world to shop for bargains. It's huge. I wouldn't recommend trying to just pop in to visit one store. Make it a day trip

It is really a shockingly charming little village. You'll see what I mean if you go there, particularly if you drive or bike along the river

Food Scene
I love a bustling, neighborhood diner and the food is good -- not franchise cardboard

A great place to buy fresh produce or pick it yourself when in season. They sell a nice selection of organic produce, natural groceries and homemade cider and pies.

I love Indian Food. A nice interior for a sit down dinner but also a buffet with stuff like, my favorite, Sag Paneer available for take-out. Prices are reasonable. For instance, Gulab Jamun, my absolute favorite desert, is $5.95. You can order online for delivery they say. Approximately 20 minutes away by car. www.tulsinanuet.com

Gyro Point Plus is almost directly across from Hogan's in the center of town. It looks like just a take out place from outside but there are tables in the back and the Greek food -- souvlaki, humus, all kinds of lamb dishes, baklava -- is delicious. They do not serve liquor but you can bring your own.

Essentials
I love this convenience store. It's got all the local newspapers, lots of first aid stuff, and even a fresh food section with freshly packaged salads, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit and even some sushi. I wish convenience stores were like this back in the day when I was on the road as a reporter. I had to live on Snickers bars and Diet Coke

Parks & Nature
This place is amazing. Do you remember the isolated hotel in the movie "The Shining"? This place is kind of like that. First you take a winding drive up Route 9W, ending up at a sprawling complex of buildings, one of them the Bear Mountain Inn, where you can have a meal or just a few drinks with a spectacular view of Bear Mountain State Park in a Adirondack-style room furnished with chandeliers made of antlers and a huge working fireplace with a stone surround. Even if you don't have a meal in the restaurant here, (I can't vouch for the food because I've never ordered) it's worth just coming up for the drive.

I haven't done this myself but I got rave reviews for kayaking on the waterways near the town of Croton-on-Hudson, across the river in Westchester county. There are a number of companies that rent kayaks. I don't have a lead on a specific one unfortunately. Here's one that looks good: https://www.kayakhudson.com/product/hudson-river-equipment-rentals/

Getting Around
From New York City Metro North trains stop at Tarrytown, which is on the other side of the Tappan Zee Bridge from Nyack and is therefore the closest train stop to Stony Point.
