Welcome To


The closest of the river towns, Hastings-On-Hudson is a little more than half an hour from Manhattan. The area’s “artsiest” village has a lot more going for it than proximity, though. Its strollable downtown streets are a joy to explore.


Hudson Valley’s Artsiest Community

Of all the river towns, Hastings-On-Hudson has been declared the “artsiest” of them all. (This comes from no higher authority than The New York Times.) Start off at the cluster of galleries near the intersection of Main Street and Warburton Avenue. Over the years, many artists have settled in the handsome homes that make their way up and over the surrounding hills. The loftiest ones have sweeping river views that inspired 19th-century painter Jasper Francis Cropsey. To enjoy works by this Hudson River School trailblazer, book a tour at the Gothic-Revival-style Newington-Cropsey Foundation Gallery of Art. There are also frequent exhibits at the Hastings-On-Hudson Public Library.

Where to Get Your Bearings

Before you leave the train station, fuel up at the Good Witch, run by longtime food writer Joanna Prisco. Housed in the station’s high-ceilinged waiting room, it’s an ideal spot for a cortado or a cold brew. In warm weather, they throw open the double front doors and host local musicians. If you’re here later in the day, grab some pub grub at laid-back Maud’s Tavern.

What Locals Recommend 

Locals tell you to take a hike: A pair of long, narrow parks, the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail and the South County Trailway, are a great way to get your steps in for the day. If you’re in the mood for a challenge, you can hike all the way to nearby towns like Dobbs Ferry.
