An overall great experience. I heard about this place while looking at attractions in the Hudson Valley. I saw great reviews and had to check it out myself. We (myself, other half and 4 year old) drove up from the Bronx. Parking was available at a few parking lots in and around the park. Large park there with lots of... More

It was a thrill to walk over the bridge and read all of the history. It was a treat to have my son with us on mothers day week end.

Walkway is a fantastic use of the old railway bridge over the Hudson. Go on the elevator and walk down into the small park they have created. The 1.2 mile walkway was very bare a lacked character. No benches just to sit and enjoy the views and the birds flying at the same height as you! A must visit place... More

The view is awesome! If you are in the area this is a not miss! I don't recommend bringing your pets on the bridge if it is warm out. The surface heats up and is not comfortable for the four legged ones.

This walkway is a wonderful addition to our Hudson valley attractions. Beautiful views up and down the Hudson River . I would add that it's very very hot up there in the summer. And very cold in the winter. Watch out for children on bikes and skates and occasional dog poop.

Go on a weekday morning. Parking availability better. Very well done. Beautiful walkway along Hudson and great view from the "Walkway." Make sure to take the free elevator.

I didn't actually get to walk over the bridge since I was getting married, but nearly our entire wedding party did and they all came back raving about the experience and with some pretty awesome pictures. Make sure to stop and eat at Lola's which is right at the foot of the walkway... they have the best food in town!
