See the Hudson River up close—right at the water level—and explore 3,000 continuous feet of sand, marshes, and historic foundations at the river’s edge. This little fifty-two-acre preserve protects something you may not find anywhere else along the river: more than half a mile of unbroken reclaimed land right at the edge of the water. A former site of commercial ice production, which thrived here before refrigerators became household appliances, this land now provides respite and nourishment for migrating birds as they follow the river’s natural course along the Atlantic Flyway.
