There was a time when the Hudson River villages were choice destinations for New York City day-trippers. They arrived by steamer, ferry and automobile to swim, dance and stroll Rockland County’s four riverside parks.
Nyack Beach was the first park to open in 1915, followed by Hook Mountain Beach and Haverstraw Beach. Bear Mountain was opened in 1913, just around the time that a plan to move Sing Sing prison to Bear Mountain was canceled.
