Rhinecliff NY a gateway to the Village of Rhinebeck
Rhinecliff NY is listed on the National Register of Historic places, and is considered as the oldest continous hamlet along the Hudson River and is a gateway to the village of Rhinebeck. Before I get to that, let us take a look at how this hamlet was formed. It was established in 1686 as a part of a purchase by 5 Dutchmen who purchased a large parcel from the indians. The area was formerly known as Kipsbergen, named for one of the Dutchmen.
Rhinecliff is a gateway way to Rhinebeck because the Amtrak train station is located there, and is the only train stop in in Northern Dutchess. This is the preferred mode of transportation for many working in New York City.
Since Rhinebeck is also a tourist destination many take the train from New York City to Rhinecliff for the weekend.
