This station is perched on a hill above the Hudson River and does offer a great view of both the river and Catskill Mountains. With an overpass over the rail line you can walk or drive down to the waterfront. It is also located just a a block from the Rhinecliff Hotel.
Public transportation is always of concern to local government. Most of Dutchess County is served by Metro-North Trains, The Hudson line along the Hudson River and The Harlem Line in the Northeastern part of the County. In Northern Dutchess we do not have Metro-North Trains, instead, we are served by Amtrak from the Rhinecliff Station in the town of Rhinebeck. The trip to Manhattan will take you about 1hr. and 40 mins.
Amtrak service is certainly more expensive than that of Metro-North however many commute from here daily to New York City's Penn Station. This station is also used by many New Yorkers to get to their country homes as well as by faculty and students of Bard College. It is also a quick way to take a day trip to Rhinebeck. You might also need to travel further north, the Amtrak can take you all the way to Canada. Here are the four available routes:
