It’s certainly not a quick train ride, but arriving in Cold Spring, located 50 miles north of NYC, is well worth the time. From the minute you step off the train and find yourself on this quaint Main Street, the hustle and bustle of Manhattan melts away. The actual village of Cold Spring is tiny, just .6 square miles, in part due to its location bound by mountainous terrain and the Hudson River. It sits at the deepest point of the river, where the views of Crow’s Nest and Storm King Mountain to the west are truly breathtaking. The central portion of the village is on the National Register of Historic Places, and thankfully, past residents had the foresight to preserve the industrial era buildings and homes. Cold Spring in steeped in history, the West Point Foundry, now a preserve managed by Scenic Hudson, played a key role in the Civil War by manufacturing the Parrott rifle. History aside, the evolution of Main Street continues with the additions of Split Rock Books and Cold Spring Cheese Shop to accompany the likes of the well-curated Flowercup Wine. Start your morning at Cold Spring Coffeehouse for coffee and house-made pastries but don’t fill up completely, there are not-to-miss daytime dining options including the Foundry Rose and Hudson Hil’s. Both offer delicious breakfast and lunch options and weekends generally require a wait. If you like your coffee with a side of fashion, stop in to Paulette for coffee, croissants, conversation, AND fashion. The owner, Jacqueline, hails from France and merely being in her presence increases your style tenfold. Doucette New York another female-owned boutique, offers its own clothing line as well as uber-stylish clothing and shoes for kids and ladies. I could keep going, there are simply TOO many independent and interesting stores to mention. You are just going to have to come and see for yourself. This tiny town has so much to offer beyond its well-known and highly regarded hiking spots.
