Introduction to Putnam County Neighborhoods


What do Donald Trump and the Buddha have in common? Both serve as host to celebrated Putnam County landmarks. Donald J. Trump State Park, a 436-acre state park located in Putnam and Westchester counties, is one of two state parks Putnam residents can enjoy. The Buddha represents in Kent, which is home to the Chuang Yen Monastery. The monastery boasts the largest Buddha statue in the Western Hemisphere as well as the only library in the United States specializing in Buddhist history. These are just two of the many natural, cultural and historical opportunities in the county. Nature is perhaps its biggest draw. From lush green meadows to ski-ready mountains, sparkling lakes, reservoirs and ponds to championship golf, Putnam county offers residents and visitors year round outdoor activities. Clarence Fahnestock State Park is even larger than Trump Park, comprising 14,000 acres with miles of walking and hiking trails. Winter fun is had at Thunder Ridge Ski Area, a small ski resort in Patterson, operates 30 trails and three lifts. For history, Brewster and Carmel both resonate with 19th century charm. You can appreciate the architecture—many of their buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places—while you browse their main streets’ specialty shops, antique stores and fine restaurants. Need to get to the City? Just hop on the Harlem or Hudson lines of Metro-North Railroad, which stop at a half-dozen county stations. Both I-84 and the Taconic Parkway also pass through the county, which makes driving a relative (i.e., non-rush hour) breeze.
