Poughkeepsie Jet Charter Information
Due to its picturesque location on the banks of the Hudson River, Poughkeepsie has long held the nickname “Queen City of the Hudson.” Dutch settlers originally founded the city in the 17th century, and you can still find many remarkable examples of the historic architecture from those earlier periods. Located in between New York City and Albany, Poughkeepsie is a thriving college town, and is home to:
- Vassar College
- Culinary Institute of America
- Marist College
- Dutchess Community College
Poughkeepsie is also the home to the palatial estates once owned by prestigious families such as the Astors, Rogers and Vanderbilts. It is also located near Springwood Estate in Hyde Park, the birthplace, lifelong home, and burial place of the 32nd President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Things to Do in Poughkeepsie
With its quaint setting along the Hudson River, Poughkeepsie is a fun city to wander around. Start by taking a stroll over the Walkway over the Hudson, a bridge that connects Poughkeepsie on the east side of the river and Highland on the west. Main Mall Row features a number of historically significant buildings that the city rebuilt after a fire in the 1870s. These commercial buildings feature a range of charming boutique shops. If you’re interested in culture, then a visit to the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College is a must. Here, you can find displays ranging from antiquity to contemporary. Poughkeepsie is also home to the oldest continuously operating entertainment venue in the state, the Bardavon 1869 Opera House. Other historic landmarks include the Locust Grove Estate, a 200-acre site that includes a:

North of Poughkeepsie in the town of Hyde Park is the home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site, which includes a library and museum. The Vanderbilt mansion, also in Hyde Park, is another registered National Historic Site and is considered to be a sterling example of the mansions built by American industrialists during the late 19th century.
