Piermont NY ~
A day trip to Piermont is worthwhile if you scenic walks, dining out, browsing in art galleries, and shopping at a variety of boutiques.
Some of the buildings in Bogertown date from the 1700s.
The Piermont pier was a major embarkation point for World War II troops traveling from nearby Camp Shanks to war torn Europe. My Uncle John traveled this route.
Always fun to look at details on houses.
Two turtles, a truck, and some pants.
Piermont's Community Garden is right on the Hudson River.
Piermont is a popular stop for bicyclists on a route that goes from NYC to Hook Mountain.
The Main drag (Piermont Avenue) is loaded with restaurants and shops ~ including a huge kitchenware boutique.
Lots of bowers and boats.
The Sneden House (pronounced Sneed-en)
Nearby Sneden's Landing was once home to celebrities like Bill Murray and Al Pacino. New Yorker writer Maeve Brennan lived in the private community of Sneden's Landing and wrote a series of short stories about it, (Calling it Herbert's Retreat to disguise the place somewhat.)
