This area along the Hudson River has a walkway by the river, benches, picnic tables, a nice restaurant with outdoor seating and a pavilion. Some of it is unkempt, but one section, Upper Landing, has nice walkways made of brick, nice benches and some historical buildings including the Hoffman House, one of the oldest buildings in the city.

If you have time, go to the waterfront and take a short stroll. There is free parking. There are picnic tables, a play set for kids, and views of the Hudson River, the Mid Hudson Bridge and the Walkway over the Hudson (which used to be a New Haven railroad bridge). There is also a restaurant and bar called the... More

It is amazing that a place with so much potential can be ruined by business people and politicians. With amazing views like this how can rude greedy people be allowed to rent here and ruin it for everyone. Overpriced and low quality food with horrendous service followed by rude management. I will spend money elsewhere. Talk a walk for the... More

Nice area to walk and enjoy nature. Great view of historic sites. The Ice House has a nice bar, dining room, and outdoor patio seating; all with great views of the river and walking bridge over the Hudson.

The combination of the Hudson River Walk and the riverfront is sensational. Downtown Poughkeepsie by the river used to be creepy at best. Now it is just wonderful. Love it.

We often grab some some light dinner and bring it to the waterfront to nosh. There are usually available picnic tables, which is good because the grass is often slightly littered and filled with bird droppings. The best part about this spot is how close you can get to the actual water. Gorgeous views of the mid Hudson and walkway... More

We took a walk here near sunset. Nice views of the Hudson valley and the Walkway over the Hudson. Parts of it are a little run-down. We ended up having dinner at the Ice House.

The River Station Restaurant at One N.Water St., Poughkeepsie, N.Y. is a great place for lunch or dinner. You can dine on their covered deck overlooking the Hudson with great views of the Peoples Walkway. The food is outstanding with large portions at very reasonable prices. The waitstaff are attentive and accommodating. They even provide a free shuttle to the... More
