A contemporary art museum located in a 300,000-square-foot former industrial building on the Hudson River. The museum showcases artists of the last half-century, including Blinky Palermo, Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt, Andy Warhol, Anges Martin, and more.
The country home of Ogden Mills and his wife Ruth Livingston Mills, the couple renovated the estate in the 1890s to create a Beaux-Arts mansion of 65 rooms and 14 bathrooms.
This gothic-style hotel was built in 1926 and extensively renovated in 1996. Located on the campus of the United States Military Academy at West Point, it features river views from the rooms facing east, and from some of the public rooms and the dining terrace. West Point is on the west side of the Hudson River about 45 minutes north of Tarrytown; the scenic route is via the Bear Mountain Bridge.
The oldest military museum in the country, collections include items related to the history of the U.S. Army, the history of warfare, as well as displays of large and small weapons. Admission is free.

The original Clermont mansion was built around 1740 and burned to the ground in 1777, as punishment for supporting the rebels during the American Revolution. Martha Livingston rebuilt the home during the Revolution. Her son, the home’s most famous resident, was Robert R. Livingston, Jr., Founding Father of the United States. The gardens and home have views of the Hudson River.
