Commuting to the Hudson Valley

~ crossing the Moodna Viaduct on Metro North

Mooda Viaduct

The Hudson Valley is an EASY Commute to New York City 

Let's find a home for you today. Search Homes for Sale Here  

Living in the Hudson Valley is a great choice. We are 65 miles north of NYC with great options for commuting to all parts of the Hudson Valley. This is but one option to Salisbury Mills, NY servicing Orange County. The train station in Salisbury Mills provides easy access for New Windsor, Cornwall, Blooming Grove, NY. 

This trestle is located in Cornwall, NY and the Viaduct is the highest and longest railroad trestle in the east. It is 193 feet tall, and 3200 feet across. Commuters pass over these rolling hills every day with some amazing views of the valley on their daily commute. the trestle was built in the early 1900 hundreds over a period of five years and completed in 1909. Over 100 years old the architectural integrity remains a testiment to a well designed trestle. The open design is resistant to high winds and little effort has been needed to keep the structure rigid and secure over time.

Metro North doesn't charge extra for views like this, but to get a photo of the trestle it is best to be on land. Any time of day has its advantages, but I truly enjoyed capturing this long exposure this past summer. I was out with a few photographers this summer learning more about long exposure setting. We set up tripods late one night and in the dark I enjoyed a nice summer breeze and  learning about night photography. (Next summer we will be capturing photos of the Milky Way)

The Hudson Valley is anything but boring. The views, the unique this to see and do are a plus when living in a country setting within a short, commuting distanct to New York City. If you are looking to get out of the city and move north, Orange County, NY may be the place for you. Let's set up a search for what we have to offer. Give me a call or send me an email. And if you are truly interesting in learning more about what there is to photograph in the Hudson Valley, I'd be happy to share that too.

At over a 1/2mile long that would be a great view in seasons with the colors of fall or even the white of winter.  Especially so if that trestle can get a view of the Hudson River
