ID mystery building viewed from Vanderbuilt Mansion????

On the drive out of the mansion, we stopped for a view of the Hudson and the mountains in the background. Across the river, looking roughly northwest, there is a HUGE rectangular building that looked massive, perched almost at the very top of a ridge, perhaps looking over Kingston. Does anyone know what it is?

I think you were looking at Mt St Alphonsus. There is a Holy Cross MOnestary directly across but Mt. St. Alphonsus is to the north. Its a religious retreat center.
