Introduction to Dutchess County Neighborhoods


Located halfway between New York City and Albany, and between the Hudson River and the Connecticut border, Dutchess County offers a unique mix of amenities. There is urban appeal in its two major cities, Poughkeepsie and Beacon, with their excellent restaurants, museums, arts and minor-league sports. And nature lovers can enjoy the mountainous terrain of the Taconics and Hudson Highlands, and the county’s abundant lakes, rivers and streams. The county also boasts dozens of historic homes, including the Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Sites, along with the Mills Mansion, Montgomery Place and Wilderstein, all situated on the banks of the Hudson and offering stunning views of the landscape. Education is also a big part of the county’s appeal, with several top-notch public and private high schools and colleges, including Bard, Vassar, Marist colleges and the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. Best of all, Dutchess is an easy commute to the City, with access provided by I-84, Route 9, Amtrak, Metro-North, several bus lines and nearby Stewart International Airport, just across the river.
