Hudson Riverwatch: Spring 2024


Eagle Fest at Croton Point Park--This year mraks the 20th anniversary of the EagleFest, an annual festival celebrating the return of the bald eagles--once endangered--to the Hudson River valley. The event is sponsored by Teatown, a nonprofit nature preserve in the Lower Hudson Valley. The event included bird shows, environmental exhibits, games, crafts and local food trucks. More information.

Hudson Highlands Fjord Trail Controversy--A linear park proposed for the Hudson riverfront between the Village of Cold Spring and the City of Beacon has engendered some controversy among local residents. The area, which follows a narrow corridor along the river, has become enormously popular as a starting point for trails in the Hudson Highlands State Park. The project is still in the early planning phases, would provide six access points along more than 7 miles of Hudson shoreline and connect to railroad stations along the route. More information.

Ardsley Train Station's Uncertain Future--Speaking of Hudson railroad stations, the ownership of the historic Ardsley-on-Hudson train station in Westchester County, NY, may be transferred to a developer who currently leases the building. According to local residents, the current leaseholder has done little to improve the structure over the past eight years and allowed it to deteriorate. The building was originally a private depot attached to the Ardsley Casino and attracted gilded-age visitors to a private club nearby. More information.
