What Others Are Saying

“This weekend I took an Metro-North Getaway – it was terrific - easy, great scenery and cost reasonable ($40/person for train + cruise).  I took the train to Poughkeepsie and then a 2 hour cruise on the Hudson. The cruise goes north on the Hudson and passes some lovely estates(Vanderbuilt’s, Culinary Institute). The train station is about 250 feet to the dock ..I’m going back for a fall foliage trip.”  DNAnews fan – Nancy L
