6 Places to visit in Upper Nyack

1. Oak Hill Cemetery:

This cemetery is absolutely stunning. Higher up you can see beautiful views of the Hudson. My husband and I were staying in The Time Nyack which backs up to this cemetery and I couldn’t stop staring out the window at it. We finally decided that we had to go and explore. I’m a volunteer for Find A Grave and noticed this cemetery was only 16% photographed, I was shocked! We spent a couple of hours going through taking photos of headstones for genealogy researchers to use. I will be uploading them to the Find A Grave database soon. If you want some time out that’s very peaceful, I recommend taking a walk through this cemetery.

2. Nyack Beach State Park:

This is a beautiful Hudson River-side park in Nyack with access to a hike to Haverstraw and Rockland Lake. There are BBQ grills available and picnic tables. Also, good for bicycle rides. If going with small children just be careful because the park is narrow at many points and close to the trail with bicyclists.

3. Edward Hopper House Art Center:

Visiting the home of a favourite artist and standing in the rooms that he grew up in gives you a new perspective of his work. Seeing the streets of his hometown through the window of his bedroom brings his works alive. Seeing the sunlight streets and homes in his neighbourhood that he painted help you appreciate his work for its realism that much more.

4. Nyack Boat Charter:

Great for family get together, and see the sun setting on the Hudson. It truly is a spectacular thing to do and worth it. I would recommend it to family and friends for sure.

5. Olde Village Inne :

The best deal in Nyack- never disappoints in quality, bountiful portions, friendly lasses and lads who serve and cheer.

6. The Friends of the Nyacks:

The Friends of the Nyacks (Nyack, NY; www.friendsofthenyacks.org) is a non-profit organization that, among other things, offers tours that focus on different areas of Nyack. I have taken several of these tours, which I found interesting and enjoyable.
