Take Me to the River

Scenic Hudson is creating a Hudson River Access Plan to document water-related recreation along the Hudson and to demonstrate the widespread concern about Amtrak's proposed gates and fences along the Hudson River shoreline.

Since the beginning of January, Scenic Hudson has been gathering information on a public input map. So far, there have been more than 600 comments. The information gathering process is now in its final week. Comments are due by January 31. To register your input, click here, and use the map to identify the river access locations--current and future--that are most important to you.


  1. Three things are needed for any access on the eastern shore, parking, slips and floats/docks...

    Prick's Point has docks and plenty of parking, no slip.

    The state launch has a slip and parking but no docks.

    And, North Dock had all three until the city removed its free stewards, who continue to pay more (federal) tax for less use of a federal waterway.

  2. After sixty-four years of paying, for roads and bridges never spanned, will Columbia County Motor Boaters finally see improvement?

    Access isn't improved for them by providing exclusive access to sailboats and motor yachts that never leave dock...

    Taxpayer paid "Welfare for rich."
