Nyack, NY: Home to Great Artists, Playwrights and Actors
Looking for a Nyack Hotel? We are just 6 miles from Nyack!
If you’d like to mix some history with your business trip, we’d like to recommend a visit to Nyack, NY, just six miles north of Orangeburg and right next to the Hudson River.
Native Americans known has the Nyack Indians were the first people to take advantage of Nyack’s location on the Hudson’s banks long before the first Europeans visited and settled in the area in 1675 (the first year a white man settled there).
Nyack has been known over the years for three major industries: sandstone quarrying to use as building materials for Manhattan’s growing skyline, shipbuilding and even shoe manufacturing.
Nyack is a great spot for outdoor lovers to visit. Rent and launch a canoe or kayak into the Hudson River at Memorial Park. If you visit during the summer, be sure to check out Memorial Park’s outdoor festivals and weekly music concerts.
The little town also is almost directly west of Sleepy Hollow, the hamlet made famous in Washington Irving’s story Rip Van Winkle. Located on the other side of the Hudson from Nyack, Sleepy Hollow is a quick drive east across the Hudson via the Governor Thomas E. Dewey Bridge.
Nyack has been home to several famous people, including the painter Edward Hopper. His former home, now the Edward Hopper House Art Center, is a must-visit destination. The house offers visitors a peek into his life, with its display about his life and art work. The Center also exhibit art of local artists.
Oak Hill Cemetery also is a must-see visit. Hopper is buried there, as are the playwright Charles MacArthur; his wife, the Oscar-, Emmy- and Grammy-winning actress; as well as the inventor and scientist William Hand (he invented a heavy duty and long-life battery used by naval troops in World War II).
Nyack’s downtown went through a major revitalization in the 1980s. It was then that the famous Helen Hayes Performing Arts Theater was constructed. This 600-seat venue plays host to Broadway musicals, drama productions, events for children and film screenings.
So, if you are planning a visit, stay at our Nyack Hotel for close proximity to all the area attractions!
