Town of Coxsackie, NY
With a newly renovated, 5-acre riverside park plus curiosity and history around every corner, Coxsackie is attracting attention.
Located along the Hudson River on the east side of Greene County, Coxsackie—pronounced “cook-SAH-kee”—features spectacular riverfront views, a variety restaurants, and a strong nod towards history. The town’s name is from an Algonquin Indian word meaning “Place of Owls” or “Cut Rocks.” Close to cities like Albany (about 30 minutes) and New York City (about two hours), Coxsackie is an ideal drive-to destination. The town was recently touted in the New York Times for community-led efforts towards preserving its charm.
Start the day with strong coffee and egg sandwich or homemade bagel and shmear at the small breakfast counter at Shipwrecked News, Books & Café on stroll-friendly Reed Street. For lunch, grab a sub filled with all of your favorite ingredients at the nearby The Yellow Deli. On Route 9W, enjoy a classic seafood dinner at the classic Reds Restaurant, where, in warm-weather months, you can also order fried seafood sandwiches from the “Fish Fry Boat” in the parking lot. Just off 9W, Paul’s Pizza & Pasta will satisfy a hankering for an on-the-go slice or a whole pie. Also, check out Cask and Rasher for a brew and pub fare, or step it up with delicious Italian bistro cuisine at Che Figata.
