Living in Poughkeepsie
If you’re relocating to the Empire State, there’s no better place to rent an apartment than in the Queen City of the Hudson: Poughkeepsie, New York! Located midway between New York City and the state capital, Albany, Poughkeepsie is a diverse, vibrant city with plenty to offer people of all ages.
Home to Vassar and Marist Colleges, Poughkeepsie attracts a young crowd and provides the nightlife, entertainment, and recreational activities to keep them busy. Outdoorsy people will love the Walkway Over the Hudson, a 19th century railroad bridge that is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge at 1.28 miles. Once the snow starts falling, stay warm and visit one of Poughkeepsie’s other treasures, like the Bardavon Opera House, France Lehman Loeb Art Center, or the Locust Grove Estate.
While Poughkeepsie is a remarkable city, its location in the state only adds to its appeal. Take an easy two-hour train ride into New York City, or go just outside the city to hike in the idyllic Hudson Valley. Don’t forget to take advantage of the Hudson waterfront! Grab tickets for a boat tour or enjoy a picnic with loved ones. Finish your day with a fabulous meal – the farm-to-table movement has taken off in the Hudson Valley, with new restaurants and breweries popping up all over Poughkeepsie.
